VNA Hospice & Palliative Care of Southern California recently announced the acquisition of Rim of the World Home Health agency in Lake Arrowhead, effective Oct. 1.
Rim of the World is the only home health agency located in the mountain communities of Lake Arrowhead, making the acquisition a strategic move for the VNA.
Now that it’s been acquired, the local home health agency—which also services Big Bear and the High Desert—will join the VNA’s status as a nonprofit agency.
VNA plans to also provide hospice services to the area served by Rim of the World by mid-2013.
“We are thrilled to be able to expand our services to the beautiful mountain communities of Lake Arrowhead and the surrounding areas,” said Marsha Fox, president and CEO of the VNA, in a statement. “This represents a tremendous opportunity to expand our level of exceptional and compassionate care to the people of this underserved region.”
