Amedisys Chairman Paul Kusserow: Contessa Health put us in a ‘whole new league’

Nashville Business Journal, May 16, 2022

Contessa Health for $250 million, the company said it planned to “invest meaningfully” in Contessa’s growth. Nearly one year later, Amedisys’ plan for Contessa remains aggressive.

“We expect this to be the future,” Amedisys Chairman and former CEO Paul Kusserow said in an interview. “Contessa just put us in an entirely new league. Being able to take people that would normally have to be in a hospital, bring them home and take care of them at home at about half the cost, particularly after Covid, it’s amazing. That’s where we want to go. We can do the basic stuff of home health and hospice, but Contessa takes us into a whole new league. Granted it’s very small but we expect to grow it considerably. … We’re investing in that full-out.”
