Addus HomeCare Corporation (NASDAQ: ADUS), a comprehensive provider of home and community-based services that primarily are social in nature, provided in the home and focused on the dual eligible population, today announced that the Company has acquired Priority Home Health Care, Inc., effective January 1, 2015. Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Priority operates six offices in the Cleveland, Akron and Columbus areas, which are expected to produce revenues of approximately $11 million for the year ended December 31, 2014. Addus anticipates the transaction to be accretive to earnings in 2015. Mark Heaney, President and CEO of Addus HomeCare, said, “We are pleased to announce the purchase of Priority Home Health Care, which substantially expands our footprint in Ohio, a state we first entered a year ago through the acquisition of two locations from Medical Services of America. Ohio is on the forefront of transitioning its Medicaid long-term care programs to managed care organizations, and all of Priority’s offices are located in areas designated for participation in the state’s dual eligible demonstration pilots. This transaction is consistent with our overall acquisition strategy of both expanding our footprint in existing states and focusing our efforts in states implementing or planning the near-term transition of care for this population to MCOs, which we believe represents a significant long-term growth opportunity for Addus. We are pleased to have this well respected organization, its leadership and all the employees of Priority Home Health Care join the Addus team.
