Dallas, TX (Vocus/PRWEB) April 05, 2011
Medistar Home Health, an award-winning provider of home health services, announced today that it has acquired the assets of Lakeview Home Care in Baton Rouge, La.
Lakeview Home Care has been recognized as one of the top 500 home health agencies in the United States, as has Medistar. Such recognition puts both companies in the top 5 percent of all home health providers in the nation for helping patients live better, recover faster, and have an improved quality of life.
In commenting on the sale, Lakeview’s Administrator, Michael Cassidy, said, “Our agency has been providing quality patient care to Baton Rouge and surrounding areas since 1988. After its purchase by our current owners in 2005 and 2007, we quickly rose to become one of the areas’ premier home health agencies. We believe this transaction will further improve the quality of care our patients receive, primarily as a result of Medistar’s resources, management team, and electronic medical records system. Our similar cultures create a blend of capabilities that positions Lakeview Home Care to provide the most superior home health care available for patients in the Greater Baton Rouge area.”
Beth Denton, Chief Executive Officer of Medistar, said, “It is with great pleasure that I welcome the employees of Lakeview Home Care into our growing Medistar family. We look forward to helping further enhance the excellent home health services currently being provided by Lakeview through the use of Medistar’s business model, which includes our state-of-the-art paperless EMR system and education programs. The continuation of Lakeview’s entire management team and employees and their relationships with local physicians, hospitals and other patient care providers, coupled with Medistar’s business acumen and expertise in patient care, will provide a unique blend of improved healthcare services.”
