Seasons was founded with a single site in 1997 serving the community of Des Plaines, IL. The company has grown to be a nationwide company with 26 locations and 17 inpatient centers serving over 28,000 patients and families in 2016.
"I am beyond honored and thankful to be a part of the Seasons family," said Todd Stern, Chief Executive Officer.
