The Menninger Clinic, one of the nation’s leading mental health care systems, announced today it has purchased the Weinberger Clinic, PLLC, to expand Menninger’s local outpatient services. Robert Weinberger, PhD, operated the group practice for nearly two years until his death in 2016. During his 40-year mental health career, Weinberger supported area families by providing mental health and addiction treatment.
The Weinberger Clinic location, 6565 West Loop South, will continue serving current and new patients, including the practice’s specialized intensive outpatient family-centered assessment and collaborative treatment approach.
“Dr. Weinberger, his wife, Lennie, and their son Evan have done so much for the community that we are honored to continue that legacy of providing treatment that is highly personalized and family centered,” said Jonathan Stevens, MD, MPH, chief of Menninger’s Outpatient Services. “Both of our organizations share a synergy of successful yet different integrated team-based treatment for helping clients attain greater health and well-being.
“In acquiring this distinguished practice, Menninger has increased the number of outpatient providers by 30 percent,” Dr. Stevens added. “As a result, Houstonians will have easier access to Menninger’s quality system of mental health care.”
In March 2017, Menninger announced plans to build a new $16 million outpatient and education center at its main campus, 12301 Main Street, south of the Texas Medical Center, to further expand Menninger outpatient care.
“We are thrilled that our group of mental health professionals is becoming part of Menninger,” said Angela Koreth, MS, LPC-S, who has been a long-time clinician at the Weinberger Clinic. “Menninger has a long reputation of offering team-based assessments and treatment. Now our clients who need additional services will have access to Menninger’s entire system right here in their community.”
With Menninger, Koreth will serve as the location’s practice manager while continuing to see families and serving as a resource to organizations in the community. Four other mental professionals from the Weinberger Clinic are also joining Menninger’s outpatient services team: Alton Bozeman, PsyD, Barbi Topek, LCSW, Virginia Miller, LPC, and James Sargent, LCDC.
