“With the acquisition of On My Care, we have gained a high-growth, well-managed agency, enhancing our services to the Bay Area community,” Alicia Marr, CEO of Excelin, said in a press statement. “We’re excited to integrate our OMC members into the Excelin team and to continue to provide the quality patient care we are valued for, together.”
For Excelin, this is the third transaction in the past seven months. In addition to On My Care, the company also purchased Louisiana-based Grace Home Health and three Texas hospice licenses in 2021.
Plus, Excelin has recently opened five de novo home health locations and four de novo hospices in California and Texas.
