ADDISON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, the newly formed company that combines Great Lakes Caring, National Home Health Care, and Jordan Health Services announced it will be named Elara Caring. In April, these three award-winning health care companies announced a merger, creating one of the largest home-based care organizations nationwide. Elara Caring’s headquarters will be in Addison, Texas. All providers in the portfolio will keep their existing names for now, but become “Part of the Elara Caring Network.” Market-specific transitions will occur over time.
“We have united under a new name and will be rolling out a new brand, but our commitment to delivery of the highest quality patient care remains the same. Our Mission: Right Care, Right Time, Right Place captures the essence of the new organization and defines our unity,” said G. Scott Herman, Chief Executive Officer of Elara Caring. “This is another step forward that unifies our 32,500 team members across the 16 different states and 225 locations in which we operate. We are thrilled to provide care to 65,000 patients and their families on a daily basis as Elara Caring.”
This combination creates one of the most technologically advanced platforms in the country, with a comprehensive care continuum of personal care, skilled home healthcare, behavioral health and hospice care.
“Elara” is one of Jupiter’s many moons and has a unique orbit, just as each patient has unique care needs. The company’s caregivers move to meet the needs of patients and their families even when they are taken off the normal path. The care delivered to patients is at the center of everything the company does, but the patient journey will always vary.
“Caring” speaks to the core of our purpose. Not just delivering services but doing so in a compassionate and active manner.
The recently announced merger of Great Lakes Caring, National Home Health Care, and Jordan Health Services was led by two private equity partners who are committed to retaining and enhancing the culture of quality care at the companies. Blue Wolf Capital Partners has been an investor in National Home Health Care and Great Lakes Caring for the past two years. Kelso & Company has joined forces with Blue Wolf to facilitate the addition of Jordan Health Services to the National Home Health Care and Great Lakes Caring continuum.
