Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services, Inc. (PHHC), a leader in providing home care to residents of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, announces the acquisition of Acelleron Medical Products, a durable medical equipment (DME) company that focuses on the distribution of nebulizers, breast pumps and other medical products.
The acquisition of Andover, Massachusetts-based Acelleron will allow PHHC to expand its home care expertise and geographic reach into New England. “We are very happy to bring the Acelleron team into the Preferred family,” said Joel Markel, President of PHHC. “We look forward to the opportunity to bring excellent home health care to many families and communities in New England.”
Preferred, which anticipates Acelleron’s full integration by the third quarter of 2013, will export its home care expertise to the New England region, while simultaneously importing Acelleron’s knowledge of medical equipment to its core home care markets of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. “We anticipate this acquisition to be truly symbiotic,” remarked Todd Thiede, CFO of PHHC. “Our product lines complement each other, and Preferred can take one more step toward broadening our reach and meeting more of our clients’ direct needs.”
