Consalvi adds, “I’m pleased to be part of such an innovative, quality organization that will allow me to accelerate Lingua’s growth while benefitting from all the assets of a provider of scale like HealthPRO®.”
“We are delighted to partner with three high quality therapy services providers that support our diversification strategy, while adding depth to our management team in the areas of home health and pediatrics,” commented HealthPRO® CEO John Heller. “Green Country and Eclipse will also expand our footprint into three (3) new states adjacent to our core market, and LinguaHealth’s reputation for quality and innovation enhances an already strong pediatrics platform based in our core Chicago market.”
