MJ Care, Inc. Through the Years
For 45 years, MJ Care, Inc. has provided highly regarded therapy staffing and related billing services to customers in schools, clinics, hospitals, long-term care and home health settings. Learn more about our company history below.
|Physical therapist Mary Van Lare founded our organization, then known as “MJ Therapy Services.” With a therapy aide by her side, Mary treated patients at a skilled nursing facility in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her reputation as a servant therapist, alongside her incredible patient focus and positive outcomes, set her and the MJ Therapy Services team apart from other contract therapy agencies at the time.|
|Nearly 15 years after our founding, we received our first designation as a Certified Rehabilitation Agency. The following year (1992), “MJ Therapy Services” became “MJ Care, Inc.,” complete with updated branding. This was the earliest iteration of our company as it exists today—and while the logo and brand style guidelines have changed, our commitment to service excellence has always remained the same.|
|Expanding beyond senior living, we began offering reimbursement for school-based services through Medicaid. Soon after, MJ Care, Inc. began providing staffing for pediatric physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy in the school setting. This marked a pivotal time in our company’s history and opened the door to one of our largest business segments to-date. Today, we serve schools in Wisconsin, Iowa and additional states.|
|MJ Care, Inc. makes the decision to invest heavily in school services by creating a proprietary, custom-built, secure online program for Medicaid billing. SBS Elite makes it easy for pediatric caregivers and the schools they represent to log, track and submit school-based services, to maximize Medicaid reimbursements and minimize claim rejections.|
|After decades of service, Founder Mary Van Lare decides to retire her position as CEO of MJ Care, Inc. Her daughter, Kelly Meleo, succeeds her in assuming responsibility of the company’s operations and growth. Kelly becomes a second-generation owner, committed to maintaining the integrity of the business model her mother envisioned 40 years prior.|
|MJ Care, Inc. strategically launches CareForce: the reinvention of RehabForce, a long-time MJ Care, Inc. service focused on therapy staffing. The decision to re-brand and re-launch CareForce was born of a necessity to meet the challenges facing healthcare facilities today: staffing shortages, unexpected vacancies, evolving standards and more.|
|MJ Care, Inc. continues to operate in many settings, including long term care, assisted living, public and private schools and hospitals. Our goal remains the same as it did decades ago: to provide high-quality, professional and ethical services, honoring the individual and their unique needs.|
