CarePoint Partners has acquired Premier Infusion, a provider of home infusion pharmacy services in Austin and an infusion pharmacy and related nursing services in the Atlanta area.
CarePoint said the Austin location will complement its Dallas and Houston operations, and that the Atlanta location would help it grow its southeastern footprint. CarePoint Partners operates a network of regional home infusion and specialty pharmacies in the United States.
"[The acquisition] advances our mission of maintaining a regional footprint while becoming a leading provider of customer-focused pharmacy and related healthcare services in both the home and alternate site environments," said Dana Soper, CarePoint's Chief Executive Officer.
Marking CarePoint’s 12th acquisition, Soper said that Premier purchase made good sense because the provider “excels at numerous IV therapies which are core CarePoint home infusion services."
Brett Carter, COO of Premier added, "We always believed that home infusion is less about the medication and supplies, and more about the people who provide them. That's why we are so excited to team up with CarePoint Partners."
