FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ACCENTCARE AND MEMORIAL HERMANN HEATH SYSTEM ANNOUNCE HOME HEALTH AND HOSPICE JOINT VENTURE

 

DALLAS, TX (April 3, 2023) – AccentCare, a national leader and trusted guide in post-acute health care services, and Memorial Hermann Health System, a non-profit, community-focused, award-winning health system committed to creating healthier Houston communities, are pleased to announce the creation of a new joint venture that will greatly expand access to care in the home throughout the Greater Houston area. This move combines some of the most well-known names in home-based care for the region, including formerly Texas Home Health, formerly Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care, and now the Memorial Hermann and AccentCare names into one trusted entity.

Both organizations are combining their local operations for home health and hospice to create the new entity, which will become the largest provider of in-home health care services in South Texas. The joint venture will be operated and managed by AccentCare.

This partnership will enhance care and service quality for all patients, families, and providers in the Greater Houston area by reimagining the home-based care system. Patients and families trust Memorial Hermann when they have a serious health episode that requires hospital care, and this joint venture will bring that same trusted health care source into their homes as their needs change over time.

Memorial Hermann has a history of building and delivering innovative care models in the Greater Houston area. “We’re excited to continue our history of transformative care by partnering with AccentCare. Home-based care is a setting that is becoming increasingly important,” said Teal Holden, Senior Vice President of Ambulatory and Post-Acute Services for Memorial Hermann. “By joining with a national and local leader like AccentCare, we will significantly advance our capability to both innovate and optimize care in the home-based care setting.”

With more than 50 years of recognized experience delivering health care in the home, AccentCare serves more than 200,000 patients a year. “We are two award-winning health care organizations, rising to today’s health care challenges and joining together to become even better,” said Steve Rodgers, CEO, AccentCare. “This partnership with Memorial Hermann throws down the gauntlet for what home-based health care can aspire to be in South Texas.”

The agreement was finalized April 1, 2023. This joint venture will continue to strengthen both organizations’ solid presences in South Texas and be able to serve patients from across the Greater Houston area.
