BAYADA Home Health Care, a leading provider organization of in-home health care and support services, and Visiting Nurse Association Health Group (VNAHG), a New Jersey-headquartered non-profit organization, announced that VNAHG intends to join BAYADA to help serve more people and to grow their collective impact to support those in need of high-quality, home-based health care. This agreement, expected to be finalized by November 2019, will join two established and mission-aligned organizations to leverage management, operating platforms, and strategic growth strategies to enhance their positive impact on the continuum of care, helping consumers experience a better quality of life while staying in the most cost-efficient and consumer-preferred setting: the home. The financial terms were not disclosed.
As part of the agreement, VNAHG’s home health, hospice, and physician service programs and hospital partnerships will be integrated into BAYADA’s operations; Steven Landers, M.D., MPH, president and chief executive officer of VNAHG, will serve as group president overseeing BAYADA’s home health and hospice specialties. Both BAYADA and VNAHG have extensive track record partnering with leading hospitals and health systems and extending home health and hospice to the people they serve.
This agreement follows BAYADA’s transition to a non-profit organization in late December 2018, designed as part of founder and chairman Mark Baiada’s Lasting Legacy vision to be the world’s most compassionate and trusted team of home health care professionals. VNAHG’s long standing VNA of Central Jersey Foundation (VNACJ) will remain an independent organization and will continue its successful community health programs as well as its continued partnership with the VNACJ Community Health Centers that have been a part of its founding mission since 1912.
BAYADA Home Health Care was founded by J. Mark Baiada in 1975 and provides nursing, rehabilitative, therapeutic, hospice, and assistive care services to children, adults, and seniors in the comfort of their homes.
