They currently serve 900 consumers between the ages of 10 and 90 at 126 facilities.

Patricia Miller Duggan, Board Chairperson of AVS, stated, "NHS offers the best of quality clinical ability combined with cutting edge technology and access to capital which will allow AVS to secure our historic mission long into the future."

NHS Chairman and CEO, the Honorable M. Joseph Rocks commented, "this transaction with AVS, one of the most significant providers of care to individuals with IDD, will be one of the largest non-profit mergers affecting this vulnerable population. We share the same keen sense of mission and commitment to quality of life issues for the people in our care. Our combined staffs represent the best of clinical talent and technology. This combined expertise will enhance our ability to provide more innovative care to some of the nation's most vulnerable people."
