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.”

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.”
