FORT WORTH, Texas (October 20, 2022)—Instant Care of Arizona, Inc., one of Arizona's largest nonmedical, in-home care providers, was recently acquired by Texas-based Choice Health at Home, LLC., a multi-state provider of home health, hospice, private duty and rehabilitation services. The transaction was facilitated by VERTESS, a leading health care mergers and acquisitions (M+A) advisory firm. The acquisition provides Choice entry into the Arizona market, as well as into attendant and personal care services.
David Jackson, founder and CEO of Choice Health at Home, commented on the transaction, "The acquisition of Instant Care of Arizona, and entry into this segment, aligns with our mission at Choice. The business has a great leadership team, and the services they provide truly enhance the life of each client."
Instant Care, headquartered in Phoenix, has been committed to providing its members and their families in Arizona the assistance needed to support daily activities and live as independently as possible since 2005. Services by caregivers include general daycare, housekeeping, bathroom assistance, meal preparation/feeding, errands, escorting and shopping assistance.
Trina Lanier, president of Choice and co-founder of the hospice and home health service lines, emphasized this point and how this transaction complemented the strategy: "Our journey at Choice has always been about creating a continuum of care in the home. This is a great step and one that establishes an excellent start in the state of Arizona."
Choice, headquartered in Tyler, Texas, currently operates in Texas, Louisiana, Kansas and Oklahoma. Choice was founded in 2008 as a rehabilitation service provider, entered home health in late 2012, and launched their hospice segment in 2018. In 2020, Choice partnered with Trive Capital and Coltala Holdings. The transaction is Choice's second in 2022 following a very active 2021. The company executed on 10 transactions in 2021 within the home health and hospice space further developing their Southwestern U.S. footprint.
VERTESS Managing Director Robert Villalobos commented, "Choice's culture and dedication to patient care aligned perfectly with that of Instant Care's. The strength of Choice's leadership team and successful track record of acquisition integration in home health and hospice were a pivotal decision factor when selecting the right buyer to continue the legacy of Arizona's premier homecare organization."
