Advantage Home Care acquires Advance Medical Staffing
The organization will do business as Advance Medical Staffing by Advantage Home Care.
“Together under the same umbrella, Advance Medical Staffing and Advantage Home Care will expand the array of services we can offer to the community,” said Lucille Gough, president and CEO, Home Health Care Management Inc., parent company of Advantage Home Care. “Our family of companies has more trained and certified professionals and more resources so we can further our level of nonmedical services to our community.”
Under one roof in the Berks VNA building in Berks County, Advantage Home Care will continue to provide private services for people who need assistance with homemaking or personal care in order to live independently, and Advance Medical Staffing will provide staffing solutions for health care providers as well as individuals who need caregiver assistance.
The companies will retain most of the employees, Gough said this morning, which brings the total staff to about 150.
As the parent and management organization for Advantage Home Care, Berks Visiting Nurse Association and Pottstown VNA, HHCM’s mission is to provide home- and community based health care related services with a focus on helping people achieve a level of physical and emotional well-being and independence in their home of choice.
“This move is a natural fit for both of us,” said Rosemarie LaManna, prior owner and CEO of Advance Medical Staffing. “Each agency has very strong ties to the region.”
Both Advantage Home Care and Berks VNA, both HHCM organizations, have more than 100 years of experience providing home health care and caregiver services.
