Heart of Hospice Announces Purchase of Additional Hospice Provider in Shreveport, Louisiana
By: Heart of Hospice
James Vanderhoeven, owner of Hospice of Shreveport-Bossier, stated, "We have compassionately served patients and families throughout Northwest Louisiana for over 15 years. When we began looking for potential buyers, our number one priority was to find a company that not only took exceptional care of their patients, but of their employees as well. After extensive research, we chose Heart of Hospice because their number one commitment is to their employees' satisfaction and well-being. We could not be prouder to become a part of the Heart of Hospice family."
Heart of Hospice—a subsidy of EPI Group, LLC—currently provides care to over 1200 patients across 15 agencies throughout Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oklahoma. Of those 1200 patients, approximately 800 are served by eight Louisiana agencies.
Heart of Hospice is led by CEO Carla Davis, who is not only a member of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization Board but is also an executive with over 28 years of hospice experience and a diverse background in compliance, operations, and marketing.
Davis shared, "I am humbled by our opportunity to partner with Hospice of Shreveport-Bossier as we continue expanding the reach of our services, providing quality, end-of-life care to eligible patients and their families in the community. I am grateful that their skilled care team sees our vision as clearly as we do; together, we will break down barriers to access and transform care by serving all eligible patients the way they desire to be served."
Ron Owens, President of EPI Health Division, stated, "We are excited to be able to support the continuous growth and success of Heart of Hospice by welcoming the Hospice of Shreveport-Bossier team to our family."
