PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. – AdaptHealth’s acquisition of Patient Care Solutions gives the provider a nice platform for expanding its supplies business, say analysts.
PCS offers disposable medical supplies, including urological, incontinence, wound care and diabetes supplies, as well as breast pumps.
“They’ve been doing supplies as a matter of course and I think this gives them the opportunity to leverage the customer base they have,” said Pat Clifford, managing director, the Braff Group. “It’s a good acquisition.”
Also part of the deal, announced in November: AdaptHealth will enter into a supply and distribution agreement with McKesson for PCS’s service lines.
The pack-and-ship model for supplies is one AdaptHealth already knows, thanks to its acquisition in 2018 of Verus Health, a national provider of CPAP supplies.
