Community Based Care (CBC) recently acquired Your Home Court Advantage to expand its veteran-focused services lines and its footprint.

“The transaction is a reflection of both the company and the marketplace,” Cory Mertz, managing partner at Mertz Taggart, told Home Health Care News in an email. “Despite recent headwinds, there is still strong demand for growing, profitable home care companies, mostly from private equity- and family office-backed portfolio companies.”

Mertz Taggart was an advisor in the deal.


CBC is a provider of home care services and iIntellectual and developmental disabilities supportive services.

On its end, Your Home Court Advantage is a home care company that operates across 26 counties in Northeast Ohio. The company specializes in providing personal care services to veterans and other seniors through Ohio’s PASSPORT Medicaid waiver program.

Together, we will build on our shared commitment to improving the lives of those who have served our country and the generations before us.”


As part of the transaction, CBC will take on all operations, contracts and the staff of Your Home Court Advantage in a stock transaction. Your Home Court Advantage’s current team will remain intact.

WellSky buys Experience Care

WellSky — a post-acute technology company — acquired Experience Care.

Overland Park, Kansas-based WellSky utilizes software and analytics to help providers across the continuum achieve better outcomes at lower costs.

Experience Care is a technology company that also provides software solutions for post-acute care companies. The company has 150 long-term care clients with 850 facilities.

“This is a transformational time for post-acute care providers,” WellSky CEO Bill Miller said in a statement. “Workforce shortages, regulatory shifts, and changes to reimbursement can have a profound impact on care delivery. But it’s also a time of great potential in our industry, and that’s why it’s important providers have a single, trusted technology partner with solutions that offer full visibility into the patient journey. With the addition of Experience Care, WellSky becomes a well-resourced and scalable intelligent care management partner for long-term care providers.”

The companies believe that their organizations, together, are a natural fit. The companies will continue to invest in care coordination, analytics and interoperability in the future.

“High-quality patient care begins and ends with the provider, and that’s why we’ve made it our mission to ensure that long-term care organizations have the best financial, clinical and administrative tools to operate efficiently and effectively,” Gina Barrett, chief operating officer of Experience Care, said in the statement. “As long-time admirers of WellSky, we couldn’t be more excited about this new partnership. The combination of our two companies will bring a whole new level of innovation to power long-term care organizations’ success.”
