Custom Home Health acquires hospice company, plans expansion

Custom Home Health recently acquired Advance Professional Hospice Care in Troy and is relaunching that business with an eye for broadening Custom Home Health's services and strengthening its bottom line.

The Royal Oak-based firm specializes in providing full-service, customized home health care services. The addition of a hospice sets the table for Custom Home Health to launch Custom Hospice and grow its operations.

"With the addition of hospice and the projected growth in health care, we are expecting between $2 million to $2.5 million in projected growth this year," says Chris Tillotson, president of Custom Home Health.

Custom Home Health raised its revenue by $2 million last year, crossing the $10 million milestone in 2015. It also hired 30 people in a wide variety of positions over the last year. The addition of Custom Hospice adds another dozen people to Custom Home Health's staff, which now stands at 135 employees. The company plans to hire at least 50 home health care and hospice clinicians and management staff in the next six months to support its growth.

"We are looking for the best people," Tillotson says.

Tillotson says his staff embodies Custom Home Health's competitive advantages. The firm looks for the right people that fit its company culture and work to achieve a high standard when it comes to performance. That translates to better outcomes for its patients.

"It comes down to outcomes and company culture," Tillotson says. "We hold our team to a higher standard."
