Care Advantage expands presence into Maryland, Delaware and Washington D.C.

Richmond, VA – May 13, 2019 – Care Advantage, Inc. (“Care Advantage”), one of the Mid-Atlantic’s largest private owned, homecare servicing companies and a BelHealth Investment Partners, LLC (“BelHealth”) portfolio company, announced the acquisitions of Capital City Nurses and Coastal Home Care today. The award-winning Care Advantage continues to build on the momentum of the last 24 months by growing its presence throughout the Mid-Atlantic. The addition of Capital City Nurses and Coastal Home Care broadens Care Advantage’s footprint into Washington DC, Maryland and Delaware for the first time.

This union of capability and talent, their largest to date, further demonstrates a commitment by Care Advantage, Inc. to their mission by offering exceptional services to its clients, a nurturing environment to their nursing teams and employees, and making a positive contribution to the communities they serve.

Headquartered in Chevy Chase, MD, Capital City Nurses was founded by Sue Rodgers, a nurse, over 40 years ago and currently operates six offices throughout Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and Washington D.C. The company provides personal care services in the home primarily to private pay clients and maintains a staff of over 500 caregivers consisting of RNs, LPNs and CNAs.

Tim Hanold, CEO of Care Advantage, said, “This is an exciting acquisition for Care Advantage, and I am thrilled to welcome the Capital City Nurses team to our home care family. Our businesses complement each other well from a cultural standpoint and both from a geographic and service mix. Capital City Nurses is exactly what we were looking for in a partner. We believe this acquisition positions Care Advantage well for continued growth not only in our stronghold of Virginia but across our Mid-Atlantic footprint. I couldn’t be more excited about the future.”

Brian Rodgers, COO of Capital City Nurses, added, “Ever since my first meeting with Tim and BelHealth, I could tell that I’d be partnering with a like-minded home care company that prioritizes client care and home care leadership. The Capital City Nurses and Coastal Teams are thrilled to be joining the Care Advantage Family and excited to leverage the resources of our larger and collective organization. While, this merger marks a momentous moment in our company’s history. It is important to emphasize that Capital City Nurses and Coastal Home Care remain committed and focused on our clients and referral partners.”

Care Advantage is one of the Mid-Atlantic’s leading privately held home healthcare providers. The Company specializes in “one-on-one” quality nursing care in the home and is a one-stop shop for home healthcare services. Corporate headquarters are in Richmond, and there are 24 branch locations throughout Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Washington D.C. The Company provides a mix of Medicaid and self-pay nursing and personal care services such as bathing, dressing, and companionship and also provides “skilled” services primarily by licensed nurses and therapists.
