New joint venture increases local health systems’ home health services capacity

Written by Laura Wood

According to a recent press release, Texas Health Resources, LHC Group and Methodist Health System will purchase and share ownership of Regent Home Health – a provider currently serving patients and families in Fort Worth, Texas.

The agency name will change to DFW Home Health. It will be relocated to McKinney, Texas, upon finalization – joining the partnership’s current network of DFW Home Health agencies operating from locations across the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. It is anticipated that the agreement will be finalized on June 1, 2021 subject to customary closing conditions.

DFW Home Health is a separate legal entity jointly owned by LHC Group, Texas Health Resources, and North Texas Health Facilities Management, Inc., a subsidiary of Methodist Health System. The provider has been in operation since 2012, and currently operates four agencies across the Metroplex as part of their long-standing agreement.

Hospital and home health JV partnerships focus on delivering patient-centered care in the comfort of the patient’s home or place of residence. Working together, they enhance home health services, facilitate better coordination of care delivery, and seamlessly transition patients from the hospital to the recovery setting.
