Humana to acquire Curo Health Services

23 April 2018 | News

The Curo transaction, which is anticipated to close during the summer of 2018, is subject to customary state and federal regulatory approvals as well as other customary closing conditions.

Singapore – Humana, TPG Capital (TPG), Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe (WCAS) (collectively, the Consortium) announced a definitive agreement to acquire privately held Curo Health Services (Curo), one of the nation’s leading hospice operators providing care to patients at 245 locations in 22 states. The Consortium is purchasing Curo for approximately $1.4 billion, in which Humana will have a 40 percent minority interest.

The Consortium members partnered with the objective of investing in and building businesses that can help modernize, enhance and transform home healthcare in America. Curo brings a highly capable management team and a tech-enabled, centralized model for hospice care that presents the opportunity for Humana and its Consortium partners to be a leader in managing the continuum of home health, palliative care and hospice in an integrated fashion, creating a positive and differentiated experience for patients and their families – as well as their care providers. This integrated model will leverage data and analytics to measure and advance evidence-based clinical outcomes for patients and seamlessly coordinate the transition from home care, to in-home palliative care, and thoughtfully into hospice, as chronically ill patients’ disease burdens progress.

The Curo transaction, which is anticipated to close during the summer of 2018, is subject to customary state and federal regulatory approvals as well as other customary closing conditions.

Humana expects to fund its portion of the transaction through the use of parent company cash and does not anticipate a material impact to earnings in 2018 from this pending transaction.
