About SalusCare

Paving the Way for a Brighter Future.

  • Mission & Vision

    Our mission is to provide exceptional and compassionate behavioral healthcare. Our vision is to be the leader in behavioral healthcare in Southwest Florida.

  • Health & Prosperity

    SalusCare was selected as the name, drawing on the Latin roots of “Salus,” meaning health, prosperity and safety, which reflects our values and goals.

  • Hope & Compassion

    Today, SalusCare employs more than 400 people who bring hope and recovery to nearly 16,000 people each year in Southwest Florida.

Our Core Values

  • Humility

    Our success does not come from the top. Humility focuses on making others successful. Managers are here to help staff members and we are all here to help patients.

  • Integrity

    Integrity is the strength to take responsibility, the willingness to do what is right, and the realization that others depend on you.

  • Respect

    One should always value others like oneself or one's family. Respect means treating others like you want to be treated.

  • Effort

    Individuals working smarter, and not always harder, can overcome the greatest hardships. A team working together gives an effort greater than the individuals.

Our History

On July 1, 2013, Lee Mental Health and Southwest Florida Addiction Services merged into one newly-named not-for-profit healthcare provider – SalusCare, Inc. – thus bringing the history of these two established community healthcare providers full circle.

SalusCare was selected as the name, drawing on the Latin roots of “Salus,” meaning health, prosperity and safety, which reflects the focus of the new organization.

Today, SalusCare employs more than 400 people who bring hope and recovery to more than 16,000 people each year in Southwest Florida. In today’s world of limited healthcare resources and increasing expectations from payers and patients, merging these long-standing mental health and substance abuse treatment organizations will ultimately improve care for children and adults by utilizing one seamless system of care and expanded access from multiple locations in Southwest Florida.
