Ensign Ramps Up Home Health Services in Portland Acquisition

The Ensign Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:ENSG) is making moves to further expand into the in-home care business. The senior living provider announced this week that one of its subsidiaries has acquired Portland, Oregon-based home health agency Connected Home Health.

“We are pleased with the growth and development of our home health businesses thus far, and this lateral diversification broadens Ensign’s reach into that business,” said Christopher Christensen, Ensign’s president and CEO. “More importantly, this acquisition is an important first step in our desire to offer a wide range of healthcare services to the vibrant Oregon healthcare community.”

Ensign’s home health and hospice subsidiary will operate the home health company, which joins a number of other home health agencies that the company operates.

The Portland addition joins Custom Care Hospice, Ensign’s hospice operation in the Dallas, Tex. market; Symbil Home Health and Hospice, Ensign’s home health and hospice operation in the Salt Lake City, Utah, market; Homecare Solutions, Ensign’s home health agency in Denver, Colo. an Careage Home Care, Ensign’s home health agency in Cherokee, Iowa.
