With 38 deals so far in 2016, home health care continues to be a hot topic. Three deals were announced in the first week of August alone, with Dallas-based Epic Health Services being the acquirer for two of these deals.

Epic Health Services, a portfolio company of Webster Capital, provides pediatric skilled nursing, therapy, developmental, enteral and respiratory services. On August 1st, the company announced the acquisition of Pediatric Special Care Inc., the only pediatric nursing and home medical equipment company in Michigan. It offers private-duty nursing services and a full range of high-tech medical equipment.

Three days later, Epic Health acquired privately-held Spring View Home Health Care, a Las Vegas-based provider of private duty nursing services for both children and adults, as well as therapy, post-operative rehabilitation and skilled nursing services for adults.

Both acquired companies will be rebranded to Epic Health Services, and Pediatric Special Care’s home medical equipment segment will be rebranded to Epic Medical Solutions, a division of Epic Health.
