Wednesday, January 2, 2013

HIGH POINT, N.C. – Advanced Home Care rang in the new year with a new acquisition, picking up Norcross, Ga.-based Extrakare.

The deal, announced Jan. 1, will allow Advanced Home Care to expand its service area to the greater Atlanta area, according to a press release.

“Going forward, we will expand services offered to patients in this region,” stated Joel Mills, Advanced Home Care CEO. “This is an exciting addition to our geography with quality leaders and staff members joining our team.”

Extrakare was co-founded in 2004 by Scott Lloyd and Kevin Godwin, both of whom will join Advanced Home Care: Lloyd as regional director in northern Georgia and Godwin as branch manager.

“Our entire team is excited to build the Advanced Home Care brand on top of the solid reputation we have developed in the North Georgia market,” stated Lloyd. “The additional resources Advanced Home Care brings to this market will allow us to become an even more valuable partner to the local healthcare community.”

Advanced Home Care has made several acquisitions in the past few years, including the HME and home infusion divisions of Hudson, N.C.-based Health Options in January 2011 and Triangle Aftercare in December 2011.
