Tuesday, December 10, 2013

HIGH POINT, N.C. – Advanced Home Care has merged with WellStar HME & Infusion to expand its footprint in Georgia, the provider has announced.

Marietta, Ga.-based WellStar HME & Infusion provides home infusion, specialty pharmacy and home medical equipment and services in the greater Atlanta area.

“We entered the Atlanta market at the beginning of 2013 with the purchase of a company in Norcross,” said Joel Mills, CEO of Advanced Home Care, in a release. “Our new relationship with WellStar strengthens our commitment to this region.”

Advanced Home Care announced on Jan. 1, 2013, that it had acquired Extrakare.

The merger also allows Advanced Home Care to broaden its services to WellStar Health System, an integrated healthcare delivery system that includes numerous medical centers, hospitals, urgent care centers and other providers.

WellStar Home Health is not part of the merger and will continue to provide in-home nursing for infusion patients, according to the release.

Advanced Home Care will continue to operate its Norcross location. In all, it has 34 locations throughout Georgia, North Carolina, South Caroline, Tennessee and Virginia.
