ATLANTA, Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PSA Healthcare, a leading provider of pediatric home care for children with medical complexities, today announced that it has named Rod Windley as Chairman and Tony Strange as Chief Executive Officer and Board member, succeeding Chief Executive Officer Eric Minkove, who has chosen to pursue other opportunities.

Mr. Windley and Mr. Strange join PSA Healthcare after highly successful tenures at Healthfield and, most recently, as the senior leadership team of Gentiva Health Services.  In his over 30 years of experience as a home care executive, Mr. Windley served as Vice Chairman and Executive Chairman of Gentiva from 2009 to 2014.  Together, he and Mr. Strange took Gentiva from $868 million in annual revenue in 2005 to over $2 billion annually at the time of its sale in 2014.  Prior to Gentiva, Mr. Windley was Founder and CEO of Healthfield, a home healthcare and hospice business with $500 million in annual revenue, until it was acquired by Gentiva in 2006.

Mr. Strange was Director and Chief Executive Officer at Gentiva from 2009 until the sale in 2014.  Prior to Gentiva, Mr. Strange worked with Mr. Windley at Healthfield, joining in 1990 and holding a number of positions of increasing responsibility, including President and COO from 2001 to 2006.

Commenting on the appointment, Steve Rodgers, Managing Director at J.H. Whitney, said: "Rod and Tony are exactly the team of proven leadership to take PSA Healthcare to the next level.  Their record of achievement in health care services speaks for itself and we couldn't be more optimistic about the future of this great company.  We thank Eric for his dedicated service and wish him all the best in his future endeavors."

Mr. Windley said: "Tony and I are very excited to assume leadership roles for such a promising company. We have worked together to build shareholder value in the home healthcare industry for more than 30 years and we see tremendous prospects ahead for PSA Healthcare by virtue of its great platform, strong market position and reputation in the healthcare community.  We are pleased to have returned to pediatrics, where it all began.  We look forward to writing a new chapter of growth and success for PSA Healthcare."

Mr. Minkove said: "I am extremely proud of what we have built at PSA and feel I have achieved all I had hoped for at this outstanding company.  Now is the ideal time to pass the baton, from a position of strength, to experienced veterans like Rod and Tony to take the company to the next level.  I will turn my sights on the next opportunity to build another winner and hope I am fortunate to do it with a team as wonderful as the one I was privileged to work with at PSA.  I have already begun working with Tony on an orderly transition and, based on that experience to date, could not be more optimistic about the future for PSA."
