Epic Health Services announced it has acquired AmeriCare, a Medicare certified home health agency with three locations in the Boston area.
The acquisition provides Epic with three new service lines: home nursing for clients with psychiatric and other behavioral issues, private-pay personal care for older adults, as well as nursing and aide services for other elderly and disabled clients.
“For over ten years, Epic has been a recognized leader in in-home private duty nursing as well as pediatric therapy in Texas and subsequently in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware,” said John C. Garbarino, Epic’s president and chief executive officer. “We’re excited to enter Massachusetts in our on-going quest to expand Epic care throughout the northeastern United States.”
Epic said it plans to also launch pediatric therapy and private duty services in Massachusetts.
For the immediate future, AmeriCare will continue to operate under the AmeriCare name. Epic’s and AmeriCare’s management teams expect the integration to go smoothly because both companies have built their businesses on a commitment to providing the highest quality care with extraordinary client service.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
