Transaction Volume Continues to Increase Across Home Health & Hospice. Heaviest Activity in the West and Southwest.

The first quarter of 2021 delivered 35 reported home health and hospice transactions. We expect some of this activity reflects deals that were delayed due to COVID-19, however the pandemic generally increased attention on the sector. We expect high deal flow throughout 2021, supported by strong private equity interest, a favorable government, and a seller pool that is ready to transact. Transactions in the West and Southwest dominated the landscape.
