HealthcareSource acquires Vikus
HealthcareSource® has bought Vikus Corporation, which supplies more than 3,000 facilities with software for hiring and retaining senior living employees.
Terms of the deal, announced Tuesday, were not disclosed.
The combined company will have more than 3,500 healthcare clients, and Vikus' Chattanooga, TN, office will remain, company officials said. No workforce reduction is planned. Vikus Chief Operating Officer Trey Mullins will report to HealthcareSource's President and CEO J.P. Fingado.
Vikus' product suite will be rebranded as HealthcareSource Senior Living and Post-Acute.
“Vikus's solution immediately extends our capabilities in all aspects of the post-acute market, enabling us to improve the quality of talent across the entire continuum of care,” Fingado said. “With both acute and post-acute settings facing a combination of a shortage of healthcare workers and ongoing consolidation, adding these additional capabilities and focus ensures that HealthcareSource can meet the providers' growing needs.”
