JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Healogics, Inc., the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Accelecare Wound Centers, Inc., also a leading provider of wound care services.
“This transaction makes tremendous sense for the employees and hospital partners of both companies, and most importantly, the growing population of patients with chronic wounds,” said Jeff Nelson, president and chief executive officer for Healogics. “Combining the two premier wound management companies will allow us to invest in the further development of the advanced wound care market. Both companies have invested in physician services businesses in the last few years, creating opportunities for physicians to engage in wound care full time. There are significant opportunities to raise market awareness. With the data we collect on the large number of wounds treated, we determine the most effective treatment pathways for our patients and share them across our provider base.”
Michael Lester, chairman and chief executive officer of Accelecare said, “This combination will leverage Healogics and Accelecare’s strengths including talented team members, an extensive network of wound care physicians, advanced training opportunities and an innovative wound care technology platform.”
Nelson went on to say, “Healogics and Accelecare share a passion for patient care and commitment to quality. We believe this acquisition moves us one step closer to achieving our mission to reach and heal more patients wherever they may be, by the best means available.”
