"The largest Louisiana transaction announced in 2022 was LHC Group’s pending merger with Optum, a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group, in a deal valued at $5.4 billion. Approximately 70% of LHC’s revenue is derived from home health care services. UnitedHealth positioned the move as helping to advance value-based care and said it would accelerate the combined companies’ ability to deliver integrated care, leading to improved outcomes. The merger follows the larger trend of healthcare moving toward hospital-at-home services which provide both patient care and economic benefits. LHC expects the deal to close during the first quarter of 2023, after completion of an FTC review."

The nice white ladies are positively apoplectic in this run-on sentence:
"This type of behavior is antithetical to all standards and guidelines within the hospice and palliative care profession and does not represent the majority of hospice professionals, the nurses, physicians, physician assistants, social workers, chaplains, pharmacists, and other members of the inter-disciplinary team who deliver care to patients (and their caregivers) that focuses on quality of life for people who are experiencing a life-limiting illness."
