LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Seven Counties Services Inc., the Louisville's area largest behavioral health provider, has finalized a merger with a larger nonprofit, Tennessee-based Centerstone.

The combined organization will serve 150,000 people in five states.

Starting Tuesday, Seven Counties will change its name to Centerstone Kentucky, and Seven Counties CEO Tony Zipple will become CEO of Centerstone Kentucky, according to a press release from the organizations.

Following the merger, all Seven Counties facilities, including its 80-bed inpatient addictions center, will remain open, and none of its providers or services will change, according to the release.

Seven Counties serves 34,000 people annually at 31 locations in Bullitt, Henry, Jefferson, OIdham, Shelby, Spencer, and Trimble counties.

Seven Counties and Centerstone first announced their plans to combine in April

“Joining together with Centerstone further enhances our ability to provide high quality and high value behavioral health and addiction services to residents throughout the region,” Zipple said in the news release. “We will have access to a national network of providers and peers, and new synergies to consider for service development and expansion.”
