DALLAS, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Epic Health Services, Inc., a leading provider of pediatric and adult home health care, announced today that it has acquired Sante Pediatric Services. Sante is one of the largest independent pediatric therapy providers in Texas with both clinic and in-home operations.

"For over ten years, Epic has been known as a leading provider of in-home health care," said John C. Garbarino, Epic's president and chief executive officer.
