Lutheran Social Services Acquires Total Rehab Services


DETROIT —  Lutheran Social Services of Michigan has acquired Total Rehab Services, a Clinton Township business that provides physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy among its rehabilitative service providers.

“This strategic acquisition allows LSSM to serve the whole person, through a comprehensive menu of rehab options, across our portfolio of services,” said CEO Mark Stutrud. “We also see tremendous opportunity to deliver this service to our existing service lines, including in-home care, group homes and residential rehab services.”

The purchase comes at a time in the growth model of the nonprofit organization. LSSM’s recent strategic planning positions it to offer a continuum of care throughout the life of its constituents. The acquisition expands the organization’s core competencies, bringing in-house a portfolio of rehab services, said Ken Ulrich, vice president of human resources.

The acquisition also brings on board TRS principals, Mark Kincer and Brent Hall, in leadership positions within LSSM. TRS’ existing relationships, clients and staff will join within the LSSM framework.

LSSM has been steadily growing its home care business since acquiring the Home Care Assistance franchise in Michigan in 2011. Expanding rehab services is a crucial component of this growth trajectory, Studtrud said.
