Altercare to welcome Greystone Healthcare Management
NORTH CANTON — Altercare Integrated Health Services (Altercare) has entered into an agreement to acquire the operations of six Ohio-based centers managed by Greystone Healthcare Management, with a proposed effective date of February 1, 2018, with the addition of two remaining facilities to follow in the next several months. The center locations include those in Adena, Cambridge, Coshocton, Newark, Somerset, Thornville, and Zanesville, and represent an additional 541 licensed beds for Altercare. The parties are actively working to close on the proposed transfer of operations.
“Enhancing the quality of life for patients and residents is our mission which is why we aligned our efforts with Altercare,” said Connie Bessler, president and CEO, Greystone Healthcare Management. “Altercare is a highly-respected provider of rehabilitation, nursing and residential services, and we felt their oversite would best benefit our employees and residents. Altercare’s vast resources and strong presence in Ohio is a positive for all.”
The Schroer family founded Altercare in Northeast Ohio in 1973 and since then have embraced each community’s unique needs to serve those requiring skilled nursing care and rehabilitation services. “Altercare welcomes our new colleagues as we continue the mission of our founding family. We are fortunate to work together with our new teams and centers,” says Gregory Colaner, Altercare President. “We are honored by the opportunity to provide an enriching lifestyle balanced with supportive, expert care and services to residents and employees in our new communities.”
Altercare centers are nationally recognized for quality care: centers have earned the ACHA Gold award for excellence in care, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid 5-Star Quality Rating, and the U.S. News & World Report America’s Best Nursing Homes recognition. Altercare is also recognized among the NorthCoast 99 Best Places to Work.
