SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Univita Health, a new company aimed at promoting and supporting a home-centered approach to independent aging, announced the acquisition of ENURGI, a leading provider of web services that connects families and patients with clinical caregivers.
"Fundamental to our strategy is the creation of a virtual marketplace for individuals to find products and services that support independent aging," said Hugh Lytle, President and Chief Executive Officer of Univita. "ENURGI has a well established presence and provides the ideal foundation for further developing our vision."
ENURGI has transformed the delivery of home health care services through its unique web services and national database of over one million clinicians. ENURGI serves patients and their families by connecting them with licensed clinicians, certified nurses or home health aides.

In addition to servicing in-home care needs such as home health care, infusion therapy and home medical equipment, the company will also provide personalized assessments, decision support tools and financial planning and support.
