Epic Health makes second buy in two months

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

DALLAS – Epic Health Services, a provider of pediatric skilled nursing, therapy and enteral services, has acquired Medco.

The Houston-based Medco is a provider of enteral therapy, respiratory equipment and supplies, including diabetes, urological and wound care, throughout Texas and Louisiana. It also offers specialty pharmacy services.

“Medco’s and Epic’s priorities are aligned, with the patient’s well-being and care as our top priorities,” said Chris Roussos, Epic president and CEO in press release. “Bringing Medco into the Epic family opens up incredible opportunities to advance patient care and further develop our pediatric care continuum.” 

It’s the second buy in as many months for Epic Health, which in September acquired Chandler, Ariz.-based Option 1 Healthcare Solutions.

Medco will combine with Option 1. With this latest deal, Epic Health will now serve 34,000 patients in 17 states.
