On April 1, 2018, LHC Group completed its merger with Almost Family. The coming together of LHC Group and Almost Family promises great benefits to patients, families, and communities across the United States. Recognizing such benefits can only be realized through an efficient and complete integration of the two business, the Board of Directors established the Transitional Advisory Council.
The Transitional Advisory Council makes recommendations, renders advice, and provides assistance to the Board of Directors, primarily related to integration of LHC Group’s existing business operations with those of Almost Family and other transitional matters as requested by the Board of Directors from time to time. The council is composed of experienced, former members of the Board of Directors who are uniquely qualified to add value and ensure a successful integration.
