January 13, 2020

Elm Creek Partners ("ECP"), a Dallas, TX-based private investment firm, is pleased to announce the sale of The Care Group to Pediatric Home Service (PHS), an independent comprehensive home care provider and a portfolio company of InTandem Capital Partners.  Under the ownership of Elm Creek Partners and in partnership with a new management team, The Care Group successfully entered into new markets, including Dallas-Fort Worth, expanded service capabilities, upgraded systems and solidified the platform for continued growth.

Adding The Care Group’s Houston and Dallas locations to the existing coverage PHS throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin means increased access to high-quality, comprehensive pediatric home care for medically complex patients and their families.

“The Care Group has been providing specialized complex respiratory service and enteral nutrition to patients for more than 30 years,” said Mathilde Riera, general manager for The Care Group. “PHS is a pioneer in ensuring kids with medical complexities have access to comprehensive specialized care at home. We are thrilled at the opportunity to strengthen and expand our services by joining a team that shares our same passion for patient-centered care.”

“We are excited about the possibilities this partnership with The Care Group has for complex medical patients,” said PHS Chief Executive Officer Cameo Zehnder. “We are now in a position to expand our mission of helping children with medical complexities achieve their best lives at home and in their communities. We look forward to continuing the great services The Care Group has been providing to the Texas community and will be working to add even more services to support this population.”

Over the next several months, The Care Group will transition to a unified brand under the Pediatric Home Service name. Patients of The Care Group can expect the same customer-centered care and support they have always received. Future plans to expand service offerings are being discussed as the companies work to integrate and ensure the best care for this complex population.
