Summit BHC has acquired the St. Joseph Institute. According to the company, the 40-bed addiction treatment center near State College, Pa., is Summit’s second facility in the state.
The St. Joseph site includes log and stone lodges, walking trails, a spa and wellness center, gym, library, chapel and private grounds. It has in-network status with commercial insurers.
“St. Joseph Institute is our sixth residential treatment facility and our second in the Northeast,” said Trey Carter, CEO and founder of Summit BHC, in a press release.
Its other Pennsylvania property, purchased in December 2015, is Mountain Laurel Recovery Center—formerly known as Seabrook West, which was owned by New Jersey-based Seabrook House. The company will look to make a few more acquisition deals in 2016, potentially complemented by up to three new facilities, according to officials.
