Rosecrance Health Network has launched into Iowa—the third state in its portfolio—with the acquisition of New Life Outpatient Center. Rebranded with the Rosecrance name, the center will offer expanded treatment options for teens with substance use disorders in addition to its adult programs.
New Life was founded in 1991 by Michael Shovlain and was the first private for-profit outpatient treatment center in Iowa. After his death in 2014, the practice was continued under the direction of his wife, Cheryl, who now plans to retire.
“The need for quality addiction treatment continues to grow, and that is Rosecrance’s core competency,” President and CEO Philip W. Eaton said in a statement. “We look forward to expanding services to meet needs in the Quad Cities region.”
