The acquisition significantly expands Sound’s impact, both in terms of services provided and the number of clients served. The new organization will have an annual revenue of more than $85 million. Patrick Evans, Sound’s President & CEO, will remain at the helm of the new, larger organization. Doug Crandall, CEO of Community Psychiatric Clinic, will join Sound’s Executive Leadership Team as its Chief Quality & Compliance Officer. Both organizations, which align in terms of mission, values and populations served, announced the intent to combine operations in April 2019, with the expectation to complete the integration after a four-month due diligence process. The acquisition is part of Sound’s longer term growth strategy, resulting an expanded healthcare organization that will have 17 locations and serve more than 26,000 people in the region with mental health, addiction treatment, supportive housing, vocational and a spectrum of other healthcare services. These programs will serve a wide range of people, from Medicaid-eligible clients to individuals who have private insurance, and bring expanded service options to more people.

Sound’s growth enables greater operational and clinical efficiencies. “Sound will be in a strong strategic position with this acquisition,” said Evans. “We will be serving more people, with expanded services at greater operational and clinical efficiencies than ever before. We are excited at this first phase of our growth plans and look forward to continuing to serving more clients with a broader continuum of healthcare services in the future.” The organization is the only provider in King County to adopt Reaching Recovery, an innovative and evidence-based model of care that improves client outcomes and ensures the appropriate level of care is delivered based on the client’s need.
