In efforts to broaden services and operations in Georgia, High Point, N.C.-based Advanced Home Care has announced a merger with Central Georgia Home Care Services, a firm based in Macon, Ga.
“The partnership between Advanced Home Care and Central Georgia Home Care Services will allow us to expand our capabilities in order to provide enhanced services to the communities and patients we serve,” stated Elbert McQueen, senior vice president of Post Acute Services and Regional Development for Central Georgia Home Care Services.
Under the merger, Central Georgia Home Care Services will now become an Advanced Home Care branch, with the North Carolina company operating the Georgia company’s existing Macon location.
“We look forward to a close working relationship with Advanced Home Care, one that will ensure that Central Georgia Home Care Service’s patients continue to receive state-of-the-art home medical equipment and comprehensive home care services,” McQueen added.
Merging with Central Georgia Home Care Services furthers Advanced Home Care’s footprint in the Southeastern U.S. Through the merger, Central Georgia Health System will join 13 other health systems and hospitals as a member of the North Carolina company.
“The addition of Central Georgia Home Care Services to the Advanced Home Care family enables us to expand our commitment of providing extraordinary care to patients in central Georgia,” stated Joel Mills, CEO of Advanced Home Care. “Our innovative care will help thousands of patients continue their recovery in the comfort of their own homes. This is an exciting addition to our service area with quality leaders and staff members joining our team.”
The integration of both companies will take place over the next few weeks, the companies stated in a release. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
