VitalCaring Opens Oklahoma Outpost Through Acquisition of Tulsa-based Scissortail Home Health

Adding to its growing list of markets served, VitalCaring has acquired Tulsa-based Scissortail Home Health. With the acquisition, VitalCaring will invest additional resources to expand home care and hospice services to Tulsa-area residents. Scissortail’s existing care team members, which includes skilled nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and social workers, will benefit from VitalCaring’s proven operational and clinical quality practices, tools, and technologies. These assets will be used to streamline operations and help the care teams provide superior home care. The new tools will also help reduce inefficiencies in administrative and care documentation processes, reducing pressure on care team members, which should help them achieve a better work/life balance.

VitalCaring CEO April Anthony believes the door is open for VitalCaring to set a new bar for quality home care in Oklahoma.  “Our leadership team has decades of experience in the home health and hospice industry.  VitalCaring was formed for clinicians and caregivers who want more than a job. We employ positive people who are pursuing their calling in healthcare.  That’s why we are becoming the provider of choice for caregivers who are called to care.”

For Oklahoma residents who were already being cared for by Scissortail staff, they will continue work with the care givers they know and trust.  “The personal relationships that are forged between patients and families and their care team members are an important part of the healthcare formula, and this acquisition will only enhance the quality and compassionate care that is offered at every encounter,” said Anthony.
