The $1.25 billion dollar deal for Aveanna Healthcare to take over Maxim Healthcare's home care division has apparently bit the dust over the months long Federal Trade Commission investigation that resulted in concerns over anti-competitive effects.  This announcement came forth on January 31 after almost a year from the original announcement of the takeover.  Wonder who are breathing sighs of relief versus those who are disappointed in this turn of events.

No real words of value here.  Healthcare has become a commodity- big fish eats the little fish.  I think this is really bad. Especially as unions have declined. So people look into Unions, your employer has little or nothing in your best interest.

Have worked for both companies and at this point will say that clients and nurses who gravitate toward Aveanna most likely are bamboozled and unaware of the reputation of, at least, one of the parent companies, PSA.  Around here, Maxim is fondly known as the agency of "ill repute".  One dirty hand washes the other.  In the end, they are all the same.  You only get good service when you are dealing with upstanding individuals within an organization.  Most of the time, those are few and far between.  People put up with a lot to have a job and clients are no better off when they don't have the means to hire their own private duty employees.  Just my observations over the decades.  Wouldn't want to be a Maxim manager at this time.  Imagine things are very tense around the offices.
