Protocare Home Healthcare, a Protocall Group company, announces its acquisition by Virtua Home Caregivers, a newly created private duty homecare enterprise by Virtua, southern New Jersey’s premier health system.
Protocare Home Healthcare has provided the best caregivers to families throughout South Jersey since 1979. Virtua has a long history of providing excellent Medicare-paid, in-home services. This acquisition now enables Virtua to provide non-Medicare, private pay in-home services, too.
“Virtua and Protocare Home Healthcare share the same cultures and service values,” states Lois Fazio-Weidhaas, Executive Vice President of Protocare Home Healthcare. “This was the top reason for Protocare to select Virtua to care for our patients and families. The acquisition of our private duty services by Virtua will provide many more quality resources for our patient families.”
“Moving forward, this acquisition provides our internal staff and caregivers an excellent opportunity for growth with Virtua, a top-tier health system in South Jersey,” Weidhaas states.
