Jun 14th, 2019

New facilities, service line expansions yield strong growth for behavioral healthcare company

PLANO, Texas (June 14, 2019) – For the fourth year running, Oceans Healthcare has been named one of the 50 fastest-growing middle market companies in North Texas by the Dallas Business Journal. Known as the Middle Market 50, this annual list includes public and private companies with annual revenues between $25 million and $750 million.

“I am honored to be included once again in a list of noteworthy North Texas companies that are achieving great things in our region,” said Stuart Archer, CEO, “But this recognition is more than just a testament to Oceans Healthcare’s corporate growth over the last year. We have grown our footprint across Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi and increased the number of behavioral health services we are able to provide to some of the most vulnerable citizens in our communities. The work our teams do to care for the individuals treated at our facilities is invaluable. They help individuals feel whole and human again. As the need for behavioral health services continues to rise, it is my goal for Oceans Healthcare to grow in tandem, to continue to shine a spotlight on the demand for this specialized care and to help meet that need locally and nationally.”
