According to a news release in The Sacramento Bee, Sutter Health’s home care division has acquired Salinas-based Alliance Home Health. The acquisition expands Sacramento-based Sutter Health’s home health programs and services in Monterey County. The deal follows a formal partnership in April between Sutter and Santa Clara County-based Hospice of the Valley. Sutter Care at Home is part of Sutter Health and delivers care to more than 150,000 patients a year in 24 Northern California counties. About 2,200 employees support patients and their families with skilled home health care, hospice, home medical equipment, respiratory therapy and home infusion services.
"Demand for health care services continues to increase across the United States due to a number of factors, including an aging population," said John Cullen, vice president of mergers and acquisitions for Sutter Health, in an email to The Bee. "Our partnerships with Alliance Home Health and Hospice of the Valley enable us to expand our capacity to provide timely, affordable and high-quality home care services to the residents of Monterey and Santa Clara counties."
The organization provides home care services throughout the communities Sutter serves, including patients from non-Sutter hospitals and facilities, he said.
