BEACHWOOD, Ohio, May 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — ARC Health, a Thurston Group portfolio company has announced the acquisition of Denver Wellness Associates, a mental healthcare provider group located in Denver, CO.

Founded by Jeanne Theobald, MD, in 2016, DWA has grown into two clinic locations in Cherry Creek and Lakewood, CO. The practice specializes in providing high-quality clinical care to the general community of Denver, with a focus on semi-urgent availability and accepting all insurance plans. With a team of over 20 providers, DWA offers multiple service lines, to include therapy and ketamine services as well as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), an outcome driven, noninvasive approach to treating depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions with little to no adverse side effects.

Theobald expressed her enthusiasm about the partnership, “ARC Health shares our commitment to providing high-quality clinical care to our patients, and we are thrilled to partner with them. As we continue to grow to meet the needs of our community, we look forward to utilizing the additional resources and support that ARC Health offers.”

The commitment of Jeanne and her team to clinical care aligns with our vision for mental healthcare, and we are confident that our partnership will enable Denver Wellness to continue providing exceptional services to their patients.”

The partnership with ARC Health will allow DWA to access additional resources and support to further develop their practice and expand their reach throughout the region. ARC Health’s mission to expand access for those in need of mental healthcare services aligns with DWA’s commitment to providing semi-urgent availability and accepting all insurance plans, making it a great addition to the network.
