About Consonus Healthcare
Consonus provides rehab, pharmacy, data analytics and consulting services in over 300 facilities nation-wide. What makes Consonus truly unique is that we are run and led by a 4th generation nursing home administrator. Consonus’ parent company, Marquis, owns and operates 23 post-acute and assisted living services and an I-SNP, AgeRight Care Management Services. This intimate facility insight allows Consonus to view their customer’s operations from the same lens. It was this operational awareness that lead to the creation of the Co-Pilot solution. Leaders from across Consonus and Marquis began to collaborate back in 2012 to develop a tool to monitor subtle shift in market share, keep tabs of pay for performance metrics, and guide providers to achieve a higher operational tempo. We are thrilled with the acquisition and see this as a way to benefit all of the Long-Term Care Industry.
