“At IntegraCare, we pride ourselves on integrity and teamwork, which I believe is very consistent with the principles and culture that Outreach operates under,” stated David Hagey, President and CFO of IntegraCare. “In fact, one of the primary reasons that Buddie Ball [CEO, Outreach] decided to sell Outreach’s Medicare business to IntegraCare was because there is that communality between our two organizations.”
IntegraCare and OMS have an agreement to help facilitate a seamless transition for OMS clients and employees alike. “The combination of our two organizations will make us a stronger company to compete in this ever-changing regulatory environment, and IntegraCare will continue to invest in our employees by providing the latest technology tools so that our clinicians can provide the highest quality of care to our patients,” said Mr. Hagey.
“In acquiring certain agencies and/or divisions, IntegraCare has always had the goal of partnering with a seller who is a recognized leader in the field, one that could help to facilitate a smooth transition for their customers and one that wants extremely promising opportunities to be presented to their employees,” added Chris Gerard, “And with this acquisition, we believe we have achieved this objective.”
