ATLANTA, GA (PRWEB) October 23, 2014
Halcyon Healthcare, a portfolio company of Health Evolution Partners (HEP), and parent company to Halcyon Hospice, has acquired Community Hospice of Mississippi, headquartered in Tupelo, MS.
Community Hospice was founded by the brother and sister team of Charles “Buck” Boatner and his sister Marilyn Hicks, and has seven locations throughout the state of Mississippi. Locations include Tupelo, Batesville, Hattiesburg, Yazoo City, Philadelphia, Clinton, and an inpatient unit, Darlington Oaks, based in Tupelo. Mark Kulik of The Braff Group served as exclusive merger and acquisition advisor for Community Hospice.
“We’re delighted to enter Mississippi with a high quality provider like Community,” says CEO Dan Kohl. “Buck and Marilyn have done a fantastic job building their business and we look forward to assisting with their continued growth. They have an outstanding reputation and deliver compassionate patient care through a team of dedicated employees that we’re honored to have the chance to work with.”
Halcyon Healthcare was formed in 2010 by Dan Kohl, Jack Draughon and HEP to build a leading hospice company in the southeastern United States. Starting with the acquisition of two providers in the Atlanta area and then expansion into South Georgia and South Carolina, the Community Hospice transaction marks the fifth acquisition completed by Halcyon.
