RHA Health Services Acquires Prolex Medical Services

Tuesday, April 9, 2019

RHA Health Services has acquired Prolex Medical Services, a provider of Intellectual Disabilities and Developmental Disabilities services in Chattanooga. Prolex joined RHA in March.

Betty White, RN, past president/CEO of ProLex, said, “As my retirement drew closer, I couldn’t have chosen a better company to acquire the clientele and employees of my company. I’ve been associated with the RHA leadership through consultation, both professionally and personally, since their inception to Tennessee services in 2001. I highly support the merger and look forward to RHA’s ongoing success, dedication and care of the I/DD individuals we have served for the past 20 years.”

RHA began offering services in East Tennessee in 2001. Since then, its I/DD services have expanded to include ICF, Waiver, ECF Choices, Vocational Supports, and will soon offer mental health and substance abuse services throughout the state. RHA currently services the following areas in Tennessee: Chattanooga, Knoxville, Kingsport, Memphis, Murfreesboro, Nashville, Springfield, and Trenton.

RHA’s goal is to ensure that persons-supported are not impacted by this change. To ensure this continuity of care, more than 120 employees were welcomed to RHA as part of this transition.

“I am pleased to welcome the Prolex team to the RHA family,” said Nick Sulaiman, president and CFO of RHA Health Services. “Prolex is a very reputable provider in Tennessee, and we look forward to continue working with persons-supported, families and guardians, local leadership, employees, as well as state and community partners to ensure a smooth transition.”
