Healogics, Inc. Completes Acquisition of Accelecare Wound Centers, Inc.
 
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. March 2, 2015 – Healogics, Inc., the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Accelecare Wound Centers, Inc., also a leading provider of wound care services.
 
“This transaction makes tremendous sense for the employees and hospital partners of both companies, and most importantly, the growing population of patients with chronic wounds,” said Jeff Nelson, president and chief executive officer for Healogics. “Combining the two premier wound management companies will allow us to invest in the further development of the advanced wound care market. Both companies have invested in physician services businesses in the last few years, creating opportunities for physicians to engage in wound care full time. There are significant opportunities to raise market awareness. With the data we collect on the large number of wounds treated, we determine the most effective treatment pathways for our patients and share them across our provider base.”
 
Michael Lester, chairman and chief executive officer of Accelecare said, “This combination will leverage Healogics and Accelecare’s strengths including talented team members, an extensive network of wound care physicians, advanced training opportunities and an innovative wound care technology platform.”
 
Nelson went on to say, “Healogics and Accelecare share a passion for patient care and commitment to quality. We believe this acquisition moves us one step closer to achieving our mission to reach and heal more patients wherever they may be, by the best means available.”

 


Additional resources available to fight chronic wound epidemic


Healogics, Ltd acquires Wound Healing Centres, Ltd in Eastbourne

September 2013
Chronic wounds affect millions of people around the world. Contributing to the epidemic is the rise of diabetes, obesity and an aging population. The most common chronic wounds in the U.K. – pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and venous leg ulcers - cost an estimated £2.3-3.1 billion per year (made up of nursing time, hospital resources, dressings, and other materials). Without proper care, patients with chronic wounds may suffer for months or even years. 
 
The recent acquisition of Wound Healing Centres, Ltd by Healogics, Ltd seeks to bring additional resources and expand specialised wound care throughout England.  Healogics brings more than 15 years of experience managing over 550 Wound Care Centers® in the United States. 
 
The broad range of services offered by the wound clinic in Eastbourne dovetail Healogics state-of-the-art Wound Care Centers in the US. Both are committed to advancing wound healing by following clear, evidence-based pathways of care and providing expert wound management for patients with chronic wounds to the lower limb. This type of specialised care will reduce expenditures, improve healing outcomes, and speed healing times for patients with hard to heal wounds.
 
Michael Sobanja, Director of Policy, NHS Alliance said, “Healogics has an excellent track record in Wound Care, and their involvement in the UK should benefit patients and drive up standards more generally.”

Healogics sees this acquisition as being a significant milestone to introduce its pioneering wound management protocols to the UK, and contribute to the wound care expertise that exists now and in the future.
 
Jeff Nelson, Chief Executive Officer and President, Healogics commented, “The chronic wound epidemic reaches all corners of the world, and patients desperately need access to specialised care. Healogics is happy to join with Wound Healing Centres, Ltd, reinforcing our mission to reach wounded patients, wherever they may be, and provide them with the care they need.”
