Gentiva's acquisition of Harden Healthcare added:
- 160 locations, an increase of 38%
- Over 25,000 patients, an increase of 29%
- 32,000 employees, an increase of 210%
Gentiva had over 5.5 patients per employee in 2012. The differential implies Harden had 0.8 patients per employee (25,000 patients/32,000 employees). Could Community Care's 31 locations have distorted the numbers so greatly? If yes, that's a staff intensive product line (quantity wise).
The end result is Gentiva has triple the number of employees to ignore.
