LAFAYETTE, La., April 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Viemed Healthcare, Inc. (the “Company” or “Viemed”) (NASDAQ:VMD), a national leader in respiratory care and technology-enabled home medical equipment services, announced the finalization of its strategic partnership with East Alabama Health (“EAH”), providing Viemed with the controlling interest of East Alabama HomeMed, LLC ("HomeMed").

Laura Grill, President and CEO of EAH, emphasized that the collaboration with Viemed aligns seamlessly with East Alabama Health’s organizational mission to provide the best possible care for every patient, every time, and to do so with empathy, kindness and caring. The EAH network encompasses East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika, AL, and EAMC-Lanier Hospital in Valley, AL, with a combined medical staff of 380 physicians.

The transaction closed on April 1, 2024, with Viemed acquiring a majority ownership interest and assuming managerial responsibilities of HomeMed.
