ROSEVILLE, Minn. (July 21, 2022)—Pediatric Home Service (PHS), an independent provider of comprehensive homecare supporting children with medical complexities, announced the expansion of their services into Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska through the acquisition of two pediatric-focused health care providers. Craig HomeCare, a provider of pediatric nursing services in the region, and Cherub Medical Supply, a pediatric-focused respiratory and durable medical equipment provider, both join PHS as part of a unified service offering to streamline care for this complex population.
“The PHS Pediatric Center of Excellence model recognizes the value of a comprehensive service offering to optimize care for complex pediatric patients. Bringing these organizations together create a unique opportunity to provide patients and their families a coordinated service offering focused on a quality patient experience,” said Adam Nielsen, CEO of PHS. “We believe every child with medical complexities deserves the best care, and this expansion is a testament to our team’s commitment to bringing more care to more children. We are thrilled at the alignment in culture between the two organizations.”
Craig HomeCare is building on three decades of both shift nursing and skilled nursing services. Cherub Home Medical has provided respiratory therapy, durable medical equipment, and supplies for the past 20 years. Both organizations have outstanding reputations among patient families, referring partners, and payers for their commitment to high-quality services. Together they will be the region’s source for equipment, supplies, respiratory therapy support and nursing for the medically complex pediatric population.
“Craig HomeCare has always operated under the belief that kids deserve better, and families deserve a choice. We are honored to bring our experience and skills to the table with such dedicated partners,” said Sean Balke, president of Home Care Nursing for Craig HomeCare, a PHS Company. “Expanding our scope of services is exciting to everyone involved. We believe in supporting our patients in every way we can, and this partnership will allow us to maximize service and care.”
“We have always looked for ways to expand our services, because we know just how important our work is to the families we serve,” said Sam Cress, branch manager for PHS, formerly Cherub Medical Supply. “Our shared mindset of patient-centric, high-quality care creates a connection that we know will benefit all patients, referrals and staff.”
Pediatric Home Service, headquartered in Minnesota, and an InTandem Capital Partners portfolio company, has continued to expand its reach and service offering to care for patients throughout Wisconsin, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Texas, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. PHS aims to continue adding partner organizations and service lines to meet the needs of the medically complex pediatric population across the country.
