Perry Memorial Hospital purchases In-Home Care VNA
In order to expand into the at-home health arena, Perry Memorial Hospital, a Princeton, Illinois-based health care organization, will take over ownership of In-Home Care VNA.
Also based in Princeton, In-Home Care VNA provides home health services including skilled nursing and rehabilitation.
Under terms of the acquisition, In-Home Care VNA will rebrand as Perry Home Care beginning in June. Perry Home Care will serve residents in Bureau, Putnam, Marshall, LaSalle, Lee and Stark counties in Illinois.
“Perry Home Care providing home health aligns with the Perry Mission to provide compassionate, quality health services to the people and communities we serve,” Annette Schnabel, president and CEO of Perry Memorial Hospital, told the Bureau County Republican.
Workforce challenges and financial struggles have increasingly prompted several hospitals to turn to outside home health agencies to either replace, reinforce or manage their internal operations.
