Dallas, TX (January 13, 2016) – On Wednesday, Jordan Health Services (“Jordan”) a provider of home health and hospice services in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas, in partnership with newly acquired CareCycle Solutions, LLC (“CareCycle”), received calls from local Bethany Home Care offices about patient discharges and closure by Friday.
Jordan and CareCycle teams began to immediately hire staff from Bethany Home Care and intake patients as they were being discharged or transferred. Working with the state of Texas, the Jordan Community Care Services team was able to facilitate a mass personal care transfer. As of Friday, January 13, 2016, Jordan secured coverage for approximately 780 patients (both community care and home health) and have processed or are in process of hiring approximately 500 employees.
“We do not have a definitive understanding of the circumstances surrounding this organizational closing. It has been relayed that the shutdown was surprising from many tenured workers. As a team, in the midst of large scale integrations, Jordan and CareCycle were able to mobilize to save hundreds of jobs and capture hundreds of patients,” stated Scott Herman, CEO of Jordan, “As a provider of home care services for over 40 years, Jordan Health Services is disheartened when any provider is forced to discharge patients and rapidly locate a new source of care. In every possible circumstance, Jordan acts as swiftly as possible, to support these vulnerable patients in times of need.”
Further details surrounding Bethany Home Care were not available.
