ACCENTCARE INC ACQUIRES SOUTHEASTERN HEALTH CARE AT HOME. ESTABLISHES A SIGNIFICANT PRESENCE IN THE PHILADELPHIA MARKET
COMBINATION TO ENHANCE HOME HEALTH, HOSPICE, AND PRIMARY CARE SERVICES IN PENNSYLVANIA AND VIRGINIA
June 28, 2021
DALLAS – AccentCare Inc., a national leader in post-acute healthcare, is proud to announce it has acquired Southeastern Health Care at Home from Geneva Glenn Capital. The two organizations will be moving forward together to solidify their role as the preferred post-acute provider for home health in Pennsylvania and Virginia.
In addition to its successful skilled home health business, Southeastern also provides palliative care, hospice, and mobile primary care service.
By adding the largest privately-owned provider of home health services in Pennsylvania to the AccentCare family, the transaction marks AccentCare’s move into the Greater Philadelphia home health market. AccentCare now has a significant presence in nine of the nation’s ten largest metropolitan areas.
“Both organizations have a long legacy of closely aligning with renown health systems and physician groups that seek coordinated, collaborative post-acute partners.” said Steve Rodgers, CEO, AccentCare, Inc. “We expect to bring our combined expertise and evidence-driven learnings to improve the home-based care continuum for families and providers across the Mid-Atlantic.”
AccentCare is recognized nationally for its innovation through quality metrics, cutting-edge care platforms and programs, integration of data, point-of-care technologies, and advanced telehealth and telemonitoring services to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients. Southeastern Health Care at Home’s 12 locations throughout southeast Pennsylvania and Virginia serves over 3,100 patients and will be a part of the AccentCare family serving over 200,000 patients in 31 states.
“With their reputation for quality and award-winning and talented employees, Southeastern Health Care at Home aligns perfectly with our values and mission to provide quality home health and hospice care to residents of Pennsylvania and Virginia. We are thrilled to have them join the AccentCare family,” said Rodgers. “With this acquisition, AccentCare is excited about the opportunities extended to us in not only the Philadelphia market, which is one of the largest home health markets in the country, but also the state of Virginia, where we have not had a presence until now.”
“From our earliest discussions with AccentCare leaders, it was clear we have a shared vision for providing exceptional care to our communities,” said Werner Freymann, who has served as Southeastern’s CEO. “We’re excited to advance home care as a member of the AccentCare family and what this means to the patients and families we serve.”
“As these two innovative organizations join forces and collaborate on future opportunities, we are committed to delivering the highest quality care to patients,” said Anita Messal, Chief Integration Officer, AccentCare, Inc. “This seamless transition allows care providers access to over 50 years of AccentCare experience.”
