All good partnerships start with a conversation. My many years working as a clinician combined with my years leading health care organizations, have taught me to listen, to learn and how to integrate the feedback of staff, management and patients.
- Michael Krupa, Ed.D, CEO & Founder
We provide a tailored approach to every partnership aligning our extensive resources to the needs of each client.
TaraVista HealthPartners has worked with over 60 organizations ranging from small group practices to large health systems. Every client faces challenges that are unique to them and to their patient population. We are a boutique firm that can give you and, more importantly, your management and direct care staff, the time and attention required to make sustainable, meaningful change.
Incorporated in 1998 and based west of Boston, TaraVista HealthPartners, brings a proven track record in providing compassionate, evidenced-based care to individuals in need of psychiatric and substance use disorder treatment. We deliver our care at our two flagship behavioral health centers and by working with our partners in supporting the delivery of their behavioral health service lines. We currently employ over 750 staff members at our behavioral health centers and within our managed services.
Meet Dr. Krupa
Throughout my career, I have focused on increasing access to care and improving organizational performance through leadership and team development. The lessons learned - the many successes as well as the things that did not go according to plan - are central to our consulting and business development planning process.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with 35 years of clinical and management experience. One of my first work experiences was with a clinic that provided high quality clinical services, with great clinical supervision and consultation but very poor billing processes. Helping untangle the billing system taught me a great deal about both the importance of well-run systems both financially and for staff morale. This simple experience led me to a career leading organizations.
Following a stint as CEO of what had been the largest behavioral health system in Massachusetts, which was owned by a publicly traded company, I decided to start my own company. Health Partners New England was incorporated in 1998. We went on to manage, consult to, and provide interim leadership for ~60 healthcare organizations in 13 states.
In 2015, Health Partners New England and GFI Partners broke ground on a 78,000 sq. Ft. Facility in Devens, MA to create TaraVista Behavioral Health Center. As of its sixth anniversary of operations, we have cared for ~25,000 patients and their families. In early 2021 GFI Partners and HPNE purchased a former hospital building and created MiraVista Behavioral Health in Holyoke, MA.
Most recently in 2022, I formed TaraVista HealthPartners as a way to bring together our earlier history of consultation, unit management, and interim leadership with our experience creating full scale, stand-alone hospitals. Importantly we also incorporate new perspectives on the value of organizational heatlh and purpose and values led care.
Our Flagship Facilities
TaraVista Behavioral Health Center is a regional inpatient treatment center serving Middlesex County, Worcester County and Southern New Hampshire. TaraVista opened in 2016 and is a brand new facility which added 115+ new beds for child, adolescent and adult care to help alleviate a mental health crisis in our communities.
MiraVista Behavioral Health Center was purchased in 2021 after it was announced the facility was closing. We are currently standing up 144 beds in our first 18 months of operation. MiraVista provides inpatient adolescent and adult psychiatric care and a full service line of substance use treatment programs.
