The recently announced JV complements a joint venture between Encompass Health and the nonprofit Saint Alphonsus established in 2019. The Birmingham, Alabama-based company is currently working to separate the home health and hospice segment into its own publicly traded enterprise, though some investors have urged the organization to instead consider a third-party merger. “We have an existing joint venture with Encompass Health for in-patient rehabilitation services, and we are excited to establish a new joint venture with Encompass Health as a valued home health and hospice provider in Idaho, with a proven ability to provide high-quality, cost-effective care while avoiding unnecessary hospital readmissions,” Odette Bolano, president and CEO of Saint Alphonsus, noted.

“We look forward to working collaboratively with Saint Alphonsus Health System to serve together as a compassionate and transformative healing presence within our communities,” Barb Jacobsmeyer, president and CEO of Encompass Health’s home health and hospice business, said in a statement. “This joint venture combines the expertise and resources of Encompass Health, one of the nation’s largest providers of home health and hospice services, with the trusted health care provider Saint Alphonsus, with more than four decades of home health service in Idaho.” The new JV includes Saint Alphonsus home health and hospice locations in Boise, Idaho. It also includes the Encompass Health home health and hospice locations in Boise and Nampa, also located in the Gem State.

The overall Encompass Health footprint includes 145 hospitals, 249 home health locations and 95 hospice locations in 42 states and Puerto Rico. Encompass Health Corp. (NYSE: EHC) and Saint Alphonsus Health System are forming a new joint venture in Idaho. The transaction closed on Jan. 1.

Cohen, president and CEO of PHMC, said in a press release. “We have a strong team in place to ensure a seamless transition as we align VNA’s services to existing PHMC programs and enrich the continuum of care for our combined organization.” As part of this transaction, the nonprofit PHMC will acquire Philadelphia Home Care (PHC), the parent company of VNA of Greater Philadelphia. It will also take over Visiting Nurse Society (VNS), VNA’s supporting foundation.
