DALLAS (PRWEB) September 13, 2018
AccentCare, Inc., a nationwide leader in post-acute healthcare, acquired Accolade HomeCare and Hospice, effective August 31, 2018, making its regional Texas Home Health operations the largest Texas-based post-acute care provider offering full-continuum home care in the state including home health, hospice, and personal care services.
Texas Home Health operations serve all 254 counties in Texas, and with Accolade, headquartered in Denton, Texas, adds service areas in contiguous counties in New Mexico and Oklahoma. In total, the acquisition brings 23 new office locations, 17 delivering home health services and six providing hospice care.
“We are proud of the growth in our Texas-based operations,” said CEO Steve Rodgers, “and are particularly pleased to have Accolade join the AccentCare family, to significantly expand our service delivery for skilled home healthcare.”
Accolade will maintain its brand and staff to continue serving more than 2,500 patients annually in the same service areas in which it currently operates.
“I am excited for Accolade to join AccentCare, which carries such a strong and respectable reputation in Texas,” said Marcylle Combs, former President and owner of Accolade. “The two companies have common values and are equally committed to qualified and compassionate patient care.”
AccentCare’s acquisition of Accolade is the company’s sixth purchase in Texas since 2017, when it acquired two personal care services companies, Padre Home Health in Corpus Christi, and Royalty Personal Assistance Service in Texas City, followed by Quality Care Services’ Medicaid attendant care segment, based in Beaumont, and later, Grace Visiting Nurses and Nurses Unlimited, home care companies, respectively based in Jacksonville and Odessa.
