Intermountain said patients will benefit from the strength of a multi-specialty, integrated network for providers.

LAS VEGAS—Intermountain Health’s acquisition of Advent Home Health, a home health agency in southern Nevada, has been finalized and Advent Home Health is now officially part of Intermountain.

“The addition of Advent Home Health underscores our commitment to increasing access to home care for a greater number of individuals—and especially at-risk patients—in southern Nevada,” said Ryan Christensen, Region vice president of Medical Group Operations for Intermountain Health. “This focus on providing care to patients in the comfort of their own home, particularly those who may have recently been discharged from the hospital or those with long-term health conditions, helps contribute to improved outcomes, fewer hospital readmissions and continuity of care.”

Advent Home Health is a Joint Commission Accredited home health company based in Las Vegas that brings expertise in nursing care, therapy and rehab, medical social work and home health aide. Intermountain Health is a nonprofit health care organization providing access to care at more than 60 clinic locations in the Las Vegas Valley to patients in primary care, urgent care and multiple specialties including oncology, cardiology, endocrinology, pulmonology, physical medicine and women’s and children’s health.

As a part of Intermountain Health, Advent Home Health is now operating as Intermountain Health Homecare.

“We’re excited to join with Intermountain to share our expertise and continue caring for patients throughout the Las Vegas Valley,” said Claudine Wynot, who served as administrator for Advent Home Health and is now nurse administrator for Intermountain Home Health. “This is an important development for our communities as we work to ensure patients have access to high-quality, value-based care.”

Intermountain said patients will benefit from the strength of a multi-specialty, integrated network for providers. They will continue to receive the same level of personalized care they have come to expect from both organizations.

“We’re thrilled to welcome the Advent Home Health team to Intermountain, expanding our ability to care for patients across their entire journey,” said Dr. Cara Camiolo, region chief medical officer for Intermountain Health. “Delivering convenient, affordable care to patients in the home setting not only contributes to their positive experience with health care but to their overall health outcomes.”
