Pediatric Home Service (PHS) has acquired Apple Homecare Medical Supply, one of the largest pediatric respiratory and enteral supply providers in the state of Texas.
In a Nov. 3 announcement, VERTESS, a healthcare mergers and acquisitions advisory firm that facilitated the acquisition, said, “Apple HMS, headquartered in Richardson, Texas, has been a full-service home medical equipment/durable medical equipment (HME/DME) supplier specializing in pediatric acute care HME equipment and supplies since 1999. Their multiple established service locations across the state of Texas enable them to provide services to any locale. Their outstanding reputation and service track record make them consistently one of the top suppliers in the state.”
PHS is based in Roseville, Minn., and serves clients in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, and Texas.
“PHS is an independent children’s home healthcare agency dedicated to helping children with medical complexities achieve their best lives at home and in their communities,” the announcement said. “Founded over 30 years ago, they have established themselves as a Pediatric Center of Excellence to improve the quality of life for children and access to care in a manner that is family and patient centered, customer service driven, clinically excellent, innovative, technologically advanced, ethically sound, sustainable, and community responsive.”
VERTESS Managing Director/Partner Brad Smith said, “The synergy between Apple and PHS was clear from the beginning of discussions. Both organizations recognized and appreciated the other’s dedication to improving the lives of a vulnerable population. Texas is greatly benefitting from the combined strengths of PHS and Apple.”
Apple HMS, who provides HME and disposable supplies to Texas families, focuses on the pediatric respiratory and enteral nutrition segments.
PHS provides comprehensive home care — including durable medical equipment, respiratory services, enteral nutrition, infusion and pharmacy services, home care nursing, and Complex Rehab Technology — to children and their families living with complex medical conditions.
