InnovAge has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Riverside Health System to purchase two Riverside PACE centers in Virginia. The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is an alternative to nursing homes and is designed to keep seniors living in their own homes and communities for as long as safely possible. Participants in PACE are primarily dually eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid.
The Riverside facilities included in the LOI are located in Richmond and Newport News, Virginia. Currently, the two centers combined serve nearly 465 seniors.
“For more than 20 years, PACE has been the core of our business,” said Maureen Hewitt, InnovAge president and chief executive officer. “Our focus is ensuring that seniors have the chance to age independently and live life on their terms. We look forward to working with Riverside to expand PACE to more eligible seniors in Virginia.”
“Riverside is committed to the PACE principles of keeping our older adults healthy and independent,” said Sally Hartman, senior vice president of Riverside Health System. “The agreement with InnovAge allows us to continue to serve participants through the Riverside Health System’s broad range of healthy aging services,” she continued.
InnovAge currently serves almost 4,000 PACE participants and is the largest PACE provider in the U.S. based on participants served. The company currently operates nine PACE centers in four states.
