Peachtree Corners-based Pediatria Healthcare for Kids acquired by Epic Health Services

Epic Health Services Inc., a Dallas-based provider of pediatric skilled private duty nursing, therapy, developmental, enteral and respiratory services, announced it has acquired Pediatria Healthcare for Kids, which is based in Peachtree Corners

Pediatria provides pediatric home health care services and introduces a new service line to the Epic continuum of care: pediatric day health centers, which provide skilled nursing needs, as well as speech, occupational and physical therapy services in a center-based environment.

“Pediatria has a respected reputation, particularly for its pediatric day health centers,” Epic president and CEO Chris Roussos said. “These centers will add a wonderful new element to our pediatric care continuum, giving us another environment in which to provide care to the most medically fragile of children. We look forward to seeing how we can grow this service line across our current service territory and bring it to the patients and families who need it.”

The acquisition will expand Epic’s footprint into three new states — Georgia, South Carolina and Florida — while growing the company’s presence in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Texas and Louisiana. Pediatria serves more than 700 patients throughout its 29 locations.

“By bringing our two companies together, the growth plans we had in place at Pediatria will be realized much sooner with the backing of Epic’s resources,” Joe Sansone. “The missions, values and culture of both our companies align and will serve as a catalyst for exceptional growth.”
