Robert D. Krumwied of Tri City Community Mental Health Center and Lee C. Strawhun of Southlake Center for Mental Health developed the Geminus concept - a management company that could serve the needs of the two healthcare facilities in Northwest Indiana, no longer burdening them with daily administration, hence leaving them the time and resources to do what they did best – help their clients. A non-profit organization, Geminus has been managing administrative services since 1992. Sonia Magallon is the President of Geminus Corporation
In 2009, Southlake Center for Mental Health and Tri City Community Mental Health Centers merged to form Regional Mental Health Center. There are two main campuses – one is located in East Chicago, Indiana and the other in Merrillville, Indiana. Robert D. Krumwied is the President and CEO of Regional Mental Health Center.
“Geminus, as part of the Regional Health Systems family of services, is committed to helping, healing, and building stronger communities. The health system builds a comprehensive continuum of care around our service recipients to support their emotional, physical and intellectual well-being.”
Comprehensive Care – Whole person care (mind, body and spirit) is provided to all that seek services regardless of the reason for the initial visit at any of our locations.
Partnership – When needs are identified for an individual or family, they may be addressed through the many and varied partnerships Regional maintains with other community, state and federal agencies.
Recovery – In all services delivered, Regional fully maintains the rights and dignity of the individual.
Prevention and Education - Communities that embrace and advocate whole person wellness in order to avoid future difficulties and grow stronger.
Legacy – The commitment to enhancing the well-being of all members of our community towards ensuring a nurturing environment for future generations.
For the 15th anniversary of Geminus Corporation the Geminus Board of Directors commissioned a piece of artwork to greet visitors in the atrium of the Geminus Corporate Center. It stands as a symbol of the diversity of children and families supported by Geminus programs and services. The artwork is also a reminder that each person’s success is built on the shoulders of the many friendly faces who help to make it possible.
Geminus Corporation helps people find a better path in life. At one time or another, we all need help with our sense of direction, as we strive to make healthy choices each day. Geminus serves the whole family and has programs for people of all ages.
The imagery created in the Geminus Totem which has been named “A Good Place” by Hammond native, David Lee Csicsko, is sensitive to the various concerns of those who come to Geminus and are neither culturally, gender, nor age-specific. The bold color emanates positive and healing imagery. The figures in the totem are representative of those who have come to “A Good Place”, Geminus Corporation.
