Courage Center announces merger with Sister Kenny Institute


Golden Valley-based Courage Center said it is merging with Sister Kenny Institute, MinnPost reported.

Courage Center, which has several locations in Minnesota, works with people with disabilities to realize their full potential in every aspect of life. Sister Kenny is a rehabilitative agency that provides services at outpatient locations and nine hospitals throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin.

The combined agency will be a part of the Allina Health System.

"We are thrilled about what the coordinated strengths of our organizations will mean to the community," Penny Wheeler, MD, chief clinical officer of Allina Health, said in a press release.

According to the Star Tribune, Courage Center and Sister Kenny have already jointly a managed-care company for the past 15 years.
