Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) January 19, 2010
Professional HealthCare, a leading provider of home nursing, rehabilitation therapy, hospice and personal caregiver services in Northern California and Utah, has announced its acquisition of Home Health Services of St. George, Utah, a company that has provided home health, hospice, and durable medical equipment services to residents of Utah, Nevada, and Arizona since 1990. This effectively expands Professional HealthCare’s service area to four states in the western United States.
“We are delighted to welcome an organization with shared values to the Professional HealthCare family of operating divisions,” states John Griscavage, CEO. “Their aligned values include a strong commitment to quality care, integrity, accountability, teamwork, and commitment to employees.” Home Health Services will continue to operate under its various names in each of its geographic markets—Southern Utah Home Care & Hospice, Southern Utah Home Oxygen & Medical, Southern Nevada Home Care, Virgin Valley Home Care & Hospice, and Granite Mountain Home Care & Hospice.
Jim McDonald, General Manager, will assume division leadership. “With the support of Professional HealthCare, we fully expect Home Health Services to continue its impressive growth in Nevada, Utah, Arizona and beyond,” he explains. “We will focus on doing what we have been doing so well for nearly 20 years, but with more support.”
Professional HealthCare is now comprised of four operating divisions that offer in-home medical, non-medical, and hospice care to families throughout Northern California, Utah, Nevada and Arizona. Its Professional HealthCare at Home division serves the greater San Francisco Bay Area, and its Victorian Home Care division provides personal home care services in Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties. Its Haven HealthCare division serves counties within the Salt Lake City, Utah region, and its newly acquired Home Health Services division provides in-home medical and hospice care to residents of southern Utah Nevada, and Arizona. Services include nursing care, physical and occupational therapy, post-hospital rehabilitation, extended nursing care, wound care, home health aides, medical social workers, medication management, senior care and hospice care. Home caregivers and personal care assistants provide help with activities of daily living, eldercare, transportation and companionship.
