Baptist Memorial Health Care Corporation Key Developments

LHC Group and Baptist Memorial Health Care Announce Joint Venture to Provide Home Health and Hospice Care

LHC Group and Baptist Memorial Health Care announced entry into a definitive agreement to form a new joint venture to enhance home health and hospice services in Tennessee and Mississippi with possible future expansion into Arkansas. Baptist Memorial Health Care is a 17-hospital system spanning a three-state area. Baptist provides home health and hospice services at eight facilities in Tennessee and Mississippi with 300-plus employees serving more than 900 patients across 50 counties. It is anticipated that the joint venture agreement will be completed on June 1, 2017, subject to customary closing conditions, at which time LHC Group will purchase majority ownership of the home health and hospice facilities and assume management responsibility. The facilities will continue to operate under their existing names. The Baptist Reynolds Hospice House, located on the campus of Baptist Memorial Hospital-Collierville, will remain a part of the Baptist System. The Hospice House will continue its vision and mission to provide comfort and support to patients and loved ones when a life-limiting illness is no longer manageable at home. In addition, the Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief will remain affiliated with Baptist. All donations made to the Hospice House and Grief Center will be used to further the mission of Baptist.
