Phoenix Home Care enters Topeka market

Posted online

Phoenix Home Care Inc. put down roots in the Topeka, Kansas, market.

The Springfield-based hospice and health care provider held a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house on June 27, according to a news release issued July 6.

“There is significant unmet need in the growing market. Phoenix has an established network of employees and referral sources in the community, which has proven helpful in broad brand awareness necessary to quickly identify and meet the unmet needs,” Phoenix owner and CEO Phil Melugin said in the release. “Also, with Phoenix’s history of advocacy at the state level for public funding and enhancement of home- and community-based services, it made sense to establish an office in the capital of Kansas as we have done in Missouri and Colorado.”

The company’s Topeka office handles home health, hospice, comprehensive disease management and privately paid services in Shawnee and other surrounding counties in the northeast Kansas area.

With the newest location, Phoenix has 18 offices in Missouri, Kansas, Illinois and Colorado. Its other Kansas offices are in Lebanon, Overland Park and Wichita, according to its website.

Phoenix, which employs more than 3,400 companywide, ranked seventh on Springfield Business Journal’s 2018 Dynamic Dozen awards with 2017 revenue of $73.5 million and three-year revenue growth of 23 percent.
