RHA Health Services is happy to announce the acquisition of Prolex Medical Services, a provider of Intellectual Disabilities and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) services in Chattanooga, TN. Prolex joined RHA in March 2019.
Betty White, RN, past President/CEO of ProLex, says, “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, our 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 & 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.”

At RHA Health Services, the people we serve and support in Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and Tennessee are at the very center of everything we do.
We are a growing company, with the goal of growing operations in our current communities, as well as the greater Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern United States. RHA provides a broad range of person-centered, integrated, and high-quality supports. RHA focuses on mental health, substance abuse, and intellectual & developmental disability (I/DD) services.
RHA is accredited by the Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL) and Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International. RHA has an organizational commitment to the dignity, independence, and equitable treatment of people, as well as their full inclusion into the communities around them. We provide a holistic, person-centered approach to care guided by a system of values that puts the needs of the people we support at the center of every decision.
Founded in 1989, RHA began as a small collection of group homes in North Carolina developed to offer support to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Over the years, RHA has expanded to include supported living, vocational and day programs, periodic respite, personal care services, targeted case management, residential ICF/IDD for infants and children up to age 15 who have acute or chronic health challenges requiring 24/7 therapeutic intervention and skilled nursing care, and much more.
In 2006, RHA began offering behavioral health services and is now the leading provider of high-quality supports and services for people with all kinds of mental health and substance use needs. By meeting the behavioral health needs of our consumers and communities, we can greatly reduce or eliminate the fragmentation of services that leaves some individuals without total, holistic, and truly person-centered care.
