Eden Health Purchases Legacy Home Healthcare; Trade Associations Merge

Eden Health acquires Legacy Home Healthcare

Eden Health has acquired Legacy Home Healthcare, an Arizona-based provider that serves Greenlee, Graham and Cochise counties.

Eden Health is the employee-owned home services division of Vancouver, Washington-based EmpRes Healthcare Management LLC.

As a part of the transaction, Eden Health will take over Legacy Home Healthcare’s two locations in Sierra Vista and Safford, Arizona.


Legacy Home Healthcare’s services include skilled nursing care, in addition to physical, speech and occupational therapy. The provider also offers medical social services, home health aide care and private duty services.

“The acquisition of these two home health agencies will pair nicely with our existing in-home hospice presence in both markets, which will provide a seamless transition from one care setting to the next,” Jamie Brown, vice president of home services at Eden Health, said in a press release.

Looking ahead, Eden Health has growth plans in store for Legacy Home Healthcare. Over the next 12-months, the company plans to expand its home health and hospice services within the southern Arizona region.
