One of California’s largest home health, hospice and palliative care providers is getting even bigger. On Tuesday, Mission Healthcare announced the acquisitions of Tender Care, Hands of Hope and Sun Tree in Utah and Idaho.

The addition of Hands of Hope gives Mission Healthcare access to the state of Idaho. The combined deals increase the number of patients Mission cares for daily to approximately 6,000.

Mission Healthcare’s CEO Paul VeHoeve said the acquisitions comes as the San Diego-based firm is expanding its care offerings.

“While we’ve expanded our reach of home health and hospice care patients over the last several years, we’ve been simultaneously broadening the type of care that we provide through innovations in palliative care and look forward to helping more patients with this service,” VerHoeve said.

Mission Healthcare currently serves more than 30,000 patients with a staff of more than 1,800 employees.
