DALLAS, Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Epic Health Services, Inc., a leading provider of pediatric and adult home health care, announced yesterday that it has acquired AmeriCare, a Medicare-certified home health agency with three locations in the greater Boston area.

The AmeriCare acquisition provides Epic with three new service lines: home nursing for clients with psychiatric and other behavioral issues, private-pay personal care for older adults, as well as nursing and aide services for other elderly and disabled clients.

"For over ten years, Epic has been a recognized leader in in-home private duty nursing as well as pediatric therapy in Texas and subsequently in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware," said John C. Garbarino, Epic's president and chief executive officer. "We're excited to enter Massachusetts in our on-going quest to expand Epic care throughout the northeastern United States."

Beyond continuing to provide AmeriCare's strong core of services, Epic is expected to launch its pediatric therapy and private duty nursing services in Massachusetts.  Furthermore, Epic will look to expand throughout Massachusetts while also expanding AmeriCare's behavioral health service line into other states.

For the immediate future, AmeriCare will continue to operate under the AmeriCare name. Epic's and AmeriCare's management teams expect the integration to go smoothly because both companies have built their businesses on a commitment to providing the highest quality care with extraordinary client service.
