Rochester therapy and health care facility sold

We are part of The Trust Project.

A longtime Rochester home health care and therapy provider is now under two new owners.

On Sept. 1, Bloomington-based Centrex Rehab and Volunteers of Americatook over ownership of Stanley Jones & Associatesat 2746 Superior Drive NW. The two organizations bought the 30-year-old firm from Patrice Mrdjenovich-Hanksand Debra A. Pletta.

Stanley Jones had 23 employees working in three divisions: home care, outpatient therapy and a pediatric outpatient clinic.

Volunteers of America acquired the home care division and the name of Stanley Jones & Associates. Centrex Rehab acquired the therapy services and the clinic, which will now operate under the Centrex name. As part of the transaction, Centrex will provide subcontracted therapists to serve Volunteers of America's home care clients.

Two employees are staying with Stanley Jones, under VOA ownership. The other 21 are joining Centrex.


"Centrex holds many of the same values and commitment that SJA has become known for: excellent care, great outcomes and a sincere belief that clients and staff come before the bottom line," said Mrdjenovich-Hanks in the announcement of the sale. "Because Centrex Rehab offers competitive benefits and salary and expert in-house training for therapists, there is an increased opportunity for advancement and personal growth that a small company cannot offer."

Volunteers of America owns the assisted and independent living facility, The Homestead in Rochester , at 1900 Ballington Boulevard NW.

"We look forward to adding home care to the services we provide," said VOA Executive Vice President Wayne Olson.
