ROSEVILLE, Minn., July 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pediatric Home Service (PHS), the country’s leading independent provider of comprehensive home care supporting children with medical complexities, announced today the expansion of their services into Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska through partnerships with two pediatric-focused healthcare providers. Craig HomeCare, a leading provider of pediatric nursing services in the region, and Cherub Medical Supply, a pediatric-focused respiratory and durable medical equipment provider, both join PHS as part of a unified service offering to streamline care for this complex population.
“The PHS Pediatric Center of Excellence model recognizes the value of a comprehensive service offering to optimize care for complex pediatric patients. Bringing these organizations together create a unique opportunity to provide patients and their families a coordinated service offering focused on a quality patient experience,” said Adam Nielsen, CEO of PHS. “We believe every child with medical complexities deserves the best care, and this expansion is a testament to our team’s commitment to bringing more care to more children. We are thrilled at the alignment in culture between the two organizations.”
Craig HomeCare is building on three decades of both shift nursing and skilled nursing services. Cherub Home Medical has provided respiratory therapy, durable medical equipment, and supplies for the past 20 years. Both organizations have outstanding reputations among patient families, referring partners, and payers for their commitment to high-quality services. Together they will be the region’s source for equipment, supplies, respiratory therapy support, and nursing for the medically complex pediatric population.
“Craig HomeCare has always operated under the belief that kids deserve better, and families deserve a choice. We are honored to bring our experience and skills to the table with such dedicated partners,” said Sean Balke, President of Home Care Nursing for Craig HomeCare, a PHS Company. “Expanding our scope of services is exciting to everyone involved. We believe in supporting our patients in every way we can, and this partnership will allow us to maximize service and care.”
