From staff reports

A Spokane Valley provider of skilled in-home nursing care for children has been sold to an Atlanta company.

Pediatric Home Care announced its sale to Aveanna Healthcare on Tuesday.

Founded by Michael Glockling, a doctor of pharmacy, and Ruth Seignemartin, a registered nurse, as a a home infusion pharmacy company, PHC later added private duty nursing for pediatrics, according to a news release announcing the sale. The company has provided pediatric nursing services in the Spokane area for 23 years.

“We searched carefully to find a larger company to align with our agency,” said Seignemartin, now PHC’s administrator. “As a national leader in pediatric care, Aveanna has the clinical quality, values and commitment needed to provide continued excellence for our nurses, our patients, and the families that we serve.”

A privately owned company, Atlanta-based Aveanna Healthcare is the nation’s largest provider of pediatric home care, with 180 locations in 23 states employing 26,000 caregivers, the release said.
