AseraCare Home Health Expands Through Acquisition of 11 Home Health Corporation of America Agencies
Date:11/16/2007

FORT SMITH, Ark., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- AseraCare Home Health announced today that it has completed the acquisition of 11 Home Health Corporation of America (HHCA) agencies in Florida. HHCA also has seven agencies in the mid- Atlantic region, which they will retain and continue to operate.

HHCA is a large and well-respected Medicare-Certified home health agency based in Pennsylvania. HHCA has specialty skilled nursing programs in cardiac, diabetic, pulmonary and orthopedic conditions, including a large therapy practice. They are certified by the Joint Commission, which is one of the industry's highest quality designations.

Because of the market presence and name recognition of HHCA in Florida, the HHCA agencies initially will continue to operate under their existing name.

"The addition of the HHCA agencies has significantly increased the size of AseraCare Home Health, and it will greatly strengthen our presence in the Florida market," said Bob Donovan, President of AseraCare. "We will look to build upon the experience and professionalism of the HHCA employees to serve even more clients in Florida.

"This transaction is consistent with our stated strategy of growing the business - both internally and through acquisition," added Donovan. "Not only does home care complement our existing businesses, it supports a growing trend in this country for more nursing care to be provided in the home. It's what people want, and we will be there to meet the need. The HHCA acquisition will position us to be a major player in this important segment of the healthcare industry in Florida and the Southeastern United States."
