BrightSpring Health Services / April 16, 2021
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (April 16, 2021) – BrightSpring Health Services completed the acquisition of Abode Healthcare today.
Abode Healthcare is one of the nation’s leading providers of home health and hospice services. Headquartered in Durango, Colorado, Abode provides home health and hospice care in 12 states through 41 branches. In combination with BrightSpring’s existing home health and hospice business, the company’s expanded footprint in the segment now spans 17 states.
“We are thrilled to become part of the BrightSpring family,” said Mike McMaude, Abode CEO, who will continue to lead the business under the Abode and affiliate names. “Abode’s patient-first philosophy, focus on delivering the best care in lower cost and preferred settings, and strong management and clinical teams are entirely consistent with BrightSpring’s priorities and culture and a great combination.”
BrightSpring President and CEO Jon Rousseau said, “As a leading home health and hospice services provider, Abode and its family of brands across its markets of service will enhance the company’s position and market-leading service levels in the industry. With our combined footprint, we are accelerating the ability to bring a comprehensive, customizable local home health and hospice service model to more communities across the country. Both Abode and BrightSpring share strong values and a commitment to people, quality and our customers and patients.”
Jon further added, “Moreover, all of the people we are proud to serve require clinical support, personal care (social determinants of health) supports and pharmacy services (with medication therapy management). We uniquely provide these three required services that all of our clients and patients need, and our combination with a high-quality home health and hospice provider in Abode further builds on our home-based clinical service offering and geographic coverage in this critically important area.”
