Epic Health Services Enters Missouri Home Health Care Market with New Acquisition
Dallas, Texas-based Epic Health Services, Inc. is expanding its pediatric skilled nursing and therapy services with the acquisition of Nurses to Go, LLC, a Missouri-based company that provides pediatric and adult private duty home health care services.
The companies this month announced the closing of a definitive agreement, under which Epic Health Services has acquired Nurses to Go.
Acquiring Nurses to Go will complement the offerings of Epic, especially as it applies to growing the company’s private duty nursing services for both children and adults with special medical conditions, as well as serving those who have needs in home, facility or school settings.
In addition, Nurses to Go provides medical and surgical nursing care, personal care and rehabilitation services, which Epic says will align well with the company’s adult home health care services.
“We were attracted to Nurses to Go because of their commitment to quality care for children and adults in Missouri, while maintaining the highest level of customer service,” said John Garbarino, chairman and CEO of Epic, in a written statement. “This commitment to quality and customer service mirrors out own and gives us great comfort that Nurses to Go and Epic will work well together.”
The acquisition provides Epic, which formerly operated 31 offices and 11 clinics in five states, with four new office locations in Missouri, specifically St. Louis, Festus, Union and Wentzville.
“We are excited to announce this entrance into the great state of Missouri as part of our long-term service expansion initiative, and we look forward to working closely with the excellent professionals at Nurses to Go who have built the company into the respected provider that it is today.”
Sharing in the positive sentiment, Nurses to Go Co-Founder and CEO Shawn Khojasteh believes the integration with Epic will also be forward-looking in the best interests of both companies.
“I am confident that our clinical and operations teams will enhance each other and allow us to continue to build on our common vision and increase our capacity to better serve our patients and their families throughout the state of Missouri,” she said in a written statement.
Moving forward, Nurses to Go will operate through the integration period as “Nurses to Go, an Epic Health Services Company.”
