Has anyone else heard the news? It looks like Maxim has sold their home care portion of the company to Aveanna. See the announcement here: Link

 

What do you all think of the move? What do you think it means for those currently employed by Maxim?

I work for Premier, and they were bought out by aveanna. We got tablets to do our charting on which is nice. I've never heard good things about Maxim though, so maybe it's a good thing they are being bought out.

Apparently Maxim also suffered from their federal legal troubles a few years back.  Aveanna is the name change iteration of Pediatric Services of America combined with Epic Healthcare out of Texas.  Millions of dollars of fines to the federal government probably has quite an impact on business that doesn't immediately go away once the fines are paid and the big shots have been canned.  Gentiva changed their name too.  Another industry impact on extended care home health operations has been the moratorium on new home health agency startups that only recently was lifted.  Since homecare seems to be the ripe festering grounds for fraud, the big boys must no longer be interested in the risk.  Impact on Maxim employees?  Those who already have second jobs with Aveanna (Premier for instance), will find themselves out of one of their jobs, as Aveanna isn't going to care to pay overtime to any employees to hold two full time workloads.

It's just mind blowing how huge these companies are getting! You have your local monopolies (like a hospital system buying up all of the independent community hospitals, outpatient facilities, etc) and then you have your national monopolies like Aveanna buying out home care agencies across the country!
