Intermountain Health Purchases Nevada’s Advent Home Health

Sept. 8, 2023
Utah-based health system says acquisition of Nevada home health agency allows it to serve more patients for traditional home health needs and increase access to post-acute care and specialists

Continuing its effort to provide more care in patients’ homes, Utah-based Intermountain Health has closed its acquisition of Advent Home Health, a home health agency in southern Nevada. Advent Home Health is now operating as Intermountain Health Homecare.

In 2019, Intermountain announced it was expanding its home-based services to include primary care, some traditional hospital-level services, and palliative care for patients with chronic or serious medical conditions. The service, called Intermountain at Home, expanded established Intermountain Homecare & Hospice services to prevent or shorten hospital admissions. 

Las Vegas-based Advent Home Health offers nursing care, therapy and rehab, medical social work, and home health aides. Since 2008, Advent has been owned and operated by Valentino Agonias. The sales price was not disclosed.

Nonprofit Intermountain Health has more than 60 clinic locations in the Las Vegas Valley offering primary care, urgent care, and multiple specialties including oncology, cardiology, endocrinology, pulmonology, physical medicine, and women’s and children’s health.

“The addition of Advent Home Health underscores our commitment to increasing access to home care for a greater number of individuals – and especially at-risk patients – in southern Nevada,” said Ryan Christensen, region vice president of medical group operations for Intermountain Health, in a statement. “This focus on providing care to patients in the comfort of their own home, particularly those who may have recently been discharged from the hospital or those with long-term health conditions, helps contribute to improved outcomes, fewer hospital readmissions, and continuity of care.”  .
