Buffalo, NY (November 14, 2022) – Today Horizon Health announced its affiliation with Endeavor Health Services as part of their strategic plan to create a coordinated network of behavioral healthcare services across Western NY. This network—the Horizon Health Alliance—is the result of an initiative to partner with other behavioral healthcare organizations to meet the growing demand for services. Together, Horizon Health Alliance’s affiliated partners will provide a comprehensive spectrum of quality coordinated care for patients and their families. Endeavor Health Services, the inaugural affiliate, will continue to operate independently, while collaborating with the Alliance in key areas.
“We are excited to join forces. Every person deserves high quality care in their own community and through the Alliance we will do this more effectively. By sharing resources that we have in common, we will improve overall operations and, with that, patient care,” said Elizabeth Mauro, CEO, Endeavor Health Services.
“Social isolation caused by the pandemic, coupled with difficult economic times, has negatively impacted our community’s mental health, and increased the misuse of drugs and alcohol. This affiliation will bring together some of the best behavioral health professionals in our area to address the growing need for more comprehensive care and eliminate barriers to patients seeking treatment,” said Anne Constantino, CEO, Horizon Health.
The Horizon Health Alliance affiliates will employ over 1,000 people and serve 30,000 patients. Horizon Health Alliance and Endeavor Health Services will immediately begin collaborating in four key areas: Data Analytics, Training, DEIB (diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging) Strategies, and Marketing.
