Pace Homecare completes acquisition of the home care operations of Physical Relief Health Care Services.

With completion of sale, Physical Relief Health Care Services embarks on new strategic direction focused on health care consulting and telemedicine solutions.

KITCHENER, ON, Jan. 14 /CNW/ - Pace Homecare is pleased to announce the acquisition of the therapy, nursing, and homemaking/personal support operations of Physical Relief Health Care Services. The acquisition brings together two established and respected names in the home care field in south western Ontario.

The combination of Pace and Physical Relief's home care operations will create an organization that is able to serve the Waterloo Wellington, South West and Erie St. Clair LHIN geographies with over 180 health care workers comprised of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, Speech Language Pathologists, Dietitians, Nurses, Homemakers / Personal Support Workers, and Companions delivering a wide range of services within the home and community. The combined operations will include central office locations in Kitchener-Waterloo and London, and a satellite office in Exeter.

Frank Pace, President of Pace Homecare states: "Both companies have a tradition of commitment to serving clients' needs in the best of all possible ways. Physical Relief has a wonderful team of therapists, nurses, homemakers and companions who are dedicated to delivering compassionate, high quality care. We are very excited about the addition of Physical Relief's home care operations with Pace Homecare and believe that this acquisition will result in improved service capability, new service locations, and ultimately improved client care."

Elaine Knight, President of Physical Relief: "We are thrilled that Pace will be the new home for our staff and clients. Pace has a wonderful client service reputation and is an organization that is managed with a high level of integrity. The sale of Physical Relief's home care operations to Pace Homecare will allow Physical Relief to focus its energy on the delivery of information technology solutions in the healthcare field. This includes the work that we have recently begun in the area of telemedicine and continuing our work with Sensory Technologies in the development of 'bedside' electronic record systems used by nurses and therapists."

In addition to this transaction, the organizations intend to collaborate in the future to leverage Physical Relief's technology solutions in the delivery of homecare services.
