(KNOXVILLE, Tenn.) Helen Ross McNabb Center, the region’s leading provider of behavioral health services, announced today that it has changed its name to McNabb Center, effective immediately. 

“Mrs. Helen Ross McNabb founded the organization in 1948 and it has since evolved to serve individuals from infancy through adulthood,” said Jerry Vagnier, president and CEO of the McNabb Center. “Mrs. McNabb left a legacy of compassion that continues to inspire us to serve those with the most need in our community.” 

The McNabb Center is undertaking a brand refresh to become more identifiable within the communities it serves. Over the next year, the Center will roll out its new logo, highlighting its focus on “Well Mind, Well Being.” 

“The McNabb Center provides mental health, substance use, victim and social services across East Tennessee,” Vagnier said. “The focus of ‘Well Mind, Well Being’ speaks to the whole person approach to the care we provide.” 

While the logo and name are changing, the Center’s dedication to delivering the highest quality care is not. The Center’s mission has been and continues to be; improving the lives of the people we serve.

In addition to the name change, the Center has refreshed its website to provide clients with easier access to care: www.mcnabbcenter.org
