Our History

Pinnacle Partners was originally formed in 2014 through the efforts of three successful and well-established behavioral health partners: Signature Health, Connections and ORCA House, devoted to enhancing its communities’ behavioral health services.

Pinnacle Partners’ mission is to assist behavioral health organizations to not only survive but thrive in this new managed care environment.
