RCA adds two new senior execs

Recovery Centers of America (RCA) — a private equity-backed substance use disorder (SUD) treatment provider — has added two new senior executives to its team.

Stacie Runion has been hired as chief human resources officer, while Kerry King has been tapped to serve as vice president of clinical services.

Headquartered in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, RCA is financially backed by Deerfield Management Company. It boasts 12 facilities across five states, as well as its own specialty laboratory. It provides inpatient and outpatient SUD services, as well as medication-assisted treatment (MAT) offerings.


In her new position, Runion will provide HR leadership to nearly 2,500 employees working across those locations. She brings more than 20 years of experience to the job.

Meanwhile, King, who will oversee all of RCA’s clinical operations, also boasts more than 20 years of experience. She specializes in the treatment of people with co-occurring SUDs and mental health disorders, as well as adolescent development and change management in the implementation of clinical best practices.

Odyssey hires chief development officer

Odyssey Behavioral Healthcare has hired an investment banking veteran as its new chief development officer.


Dan Davidson brings more than 25 years of transaction and advisory experience to the job. Before joining Odyssey, Davidson served as co-founder and managing director of Coker Capital Securities, an investment banking firm focused on health care that was acquired by Fifth Third Securities in 2018.

Headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee, Odyssey provides the continuum of care to patients with eating disorders, psychiatric conditions, substance use disorders and technology addictions. Founded just over five years ago, the company has 20 locations across seven states, with more than 350 beds total.

In his new position, Davidson will be focused on driving growth by strengthening and expanding Odyssey’s network of facilities nationwide.

Kelly McCausland stepped into the role earlier this month. She holds a master’s in public administration and is the founder of Prana Recovery Centers, a nearby nonprofit SUD treatment center.
