Private equity-backed The MENTOR Network is widening its footprint in Texas. The company is adding Sage Care Therapy Services, which currently serves 900 young people across North Texas. Its pediatric therapy offerings include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and feeding therapy customized to each patient’s unique needs. Sage Care Therapy employs a multidisciplinary team, including bilingual therapists and translators, allowing the company to better meet the needs of the diverse community in Dallas, where the company is headquartered.
This deal expands MENTOR’s offerings to include home-based delivery of pediatric therapies for children up to 21 years old in North Texas and the surrounding Dallas-Fort Worth region.
The acquisition of Sage Care Therapy is actually the second deal MENTOR has announced in Texas, as seen in search results of our Healthcare Deals database. MENTOR purchased D&S Community Services, a leading provider of residential and community-based services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. D&S provides services to over 3,400 consumers across four states. The seller was Comvest Partners, a private investment firm based in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The MENTOR Network used to be known as Civitas Solutions, Inc., but that changed when Centerbridge Partners bought the company and took it private in a $1.4 billion deal, the largest Behavioral Health Care transaction in 2018.
