(NASDAQ: STIM), a commercial-stage medical technology company focused on designing, developing and marketing products that improve the quality of life for patients who suffer from neurohealth disorders, and River Region Psychiatry Associates (RRPA), a leading provider of mental health services in Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Georgia, announced today a partnership agreement under which Neuronetics will be the exclusive supplier of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) equipment to RRPA and its clinics.

NeuroStar is the leading TMS treatment for depression in adult patients and has been proven to be safe and effective, with over 4 million treatments delivered to over 110,000 patients to-date.

“Our number one priority is providing care and support to our patients, which means offering a variety of proven treatments, including TMS,” said Dr. Shankar Yalamanchili, Founder of River Region Psychiatry Associates. “While we looked at other TMS options, NeuroStar was the obvious first choice because of the commitment they have to the success of patients and providers that are offering NeuroStar.”
