Louisville, KY (August 31 2011) Trilogy Health Services today announced the acquisition of Indiana-based Serenity Hospice. The details of the transactions were not disclosed.

Serenity Hospice currently operates offices in Lafayette and Fowler, Indiana. Serenity provides an integrated home hospice program that focuses on managing pain and symptom control in the home environment. It was founded in 2002 by Carolyn Supinski, RN, BSN, CHA. Ms. Supinski will remain Executive Director following the acquisition. Future plans include expansion of the company’s current service area.

“Serenity’s operating values are based on strong customer service principles that align well with our operating standards,” stated Leigh Ann Barney, Executive Vice President of TriStar Services, Trilogy’s ancillary services subsidiary. “Those ideals, coupled with the blending of the “best practices” from both organizations will allow us to forge a strong partnership that will benefit the clients we serve.”

“We welcome Serenity Hospice to the Trilogy family of providers,” commented Randall Bufford, President and CEO of Trilogy Health services. “As we continue our journey to be the Best Healthcare Company in the Midwest, we are constantly looking for opportunities to expand our current continuum of services to better serve seniors in our markets, regardless of their healthcare needs. We see the addition of Serenity Hospice as the next step in expanding the array of post-acute services we offer.”

“I could not ask for a better partner than TriStar Services,” said Ms. Supinski. “Their focus on customer service and culture of servant leadership is the perfect match for Serenity’s approach to the delivery of care. I look forward to working with the TriStar team as we identify new service opportunities and areas for potential market expansion.”
