Global investment firm KKR acquired BrightSpring Health Services (“BrightSpring”) in March of 2019. As part of this transaction, BrightSpring merged with PharMerica Corporation (“PharMerica”) to become a leading provider of home and community-based health and pharmacy services for high-need and medically complex populations.
KKR’s investment has helped make possible our continued investment in our employees and technology during a time of great strain on the health care system. Their support helped us invest over $60 million in our Community Living staff throughout the pandemic – increasing wages by approximately 23.9% from January 2019 to February 2022.
KKR’s support has helped us achieve significantly lower COVID-19 infection rates than the U.S. national average, despite serving a comparatively higher-risk population with 24/7 care, with client/patient and employee infection rates of only 6.1% and 8.1%, respectively – approximately one third of the U.S. case rate of 23.9% (as of February 28, 2022).
These investments represent our ongoing commitment to our staff, our patients and continuously improving our standard of care in every health care environment.
We continuously evaluate the care we deliver and have assessment and feedback processes in place to ensure our operations fully support the health, safety and well-being of the people we serve. Since completing our acquisition by KKR in March 2019, BrightSpring has added scale, expertise and financial and operational resources that, in turn, have helped us strengthen our treatment programs, enhancing care for our patients and improving outcomes.
With KKR’s financial support, we have rolled out TaskMaster Pro electronic health record and QuickMAR medication administration software improvements, across more than 700 and 1,300 homes respectively for people with disabilities.
KKR is a leading global investment firm that offers alternative asset management as well as capital markets and insurance solutions.
Every day when Joan comes back from rehab, she’s physically stronger. She’s gotten strong enough that she’s been able to get out of the wheelchair. It’s remarkable. It’s a direct result of what they do and it borders on miraculous for us.
Having rehab in my home is a huge blessing. Being able to go out on a beautiful day and feel the sunshine, while getting therapy is something I couldn't do in the hospital. With continous therapy I'm getting stronger and I feel that with more therapy, I'll be able to get back to normal.
