Do it the Right Way, Every Day.
BrightSpring™ Health Holdings, Inc. has a commitment to compliance. It is important to us that we provide a principled and compassionate approach to every single individual we serve.
In 2019 BrightSpring Health Services and PharMerica Corporation (“PharMerica”) were brought together by common ownership. Together BrightSpring and PharMerica will become a leading provider of home and community based health and pharmacy services for high-need and medically complex populations.
BrightSpring Health Holdings has a compliance program that requires our employees to do their jobs the right way every day. The program is modeled after the Office of Inspector General’s Seven Elements of an Effective Compliance Program. We screen all potential employees to ensure they meet background screening requirements and are eligible to participate in federal healthcare programs. We distribute our Code of Conduct book during an employee’s first days on the job. We want our employees to understand their responsibility to not only adhere to these principles of conduct, but also actively participate in and promote compliance within their workplace. We are committed to the ideals of our mission and our Code of Conduct. We are equally committed to ensuring that our actions consistently reflect our words. In this spirit, BrightSpring Health Holdings’ mission is to impact communities for the better and create optimal environments for people in need of assistance through attentive and quality service principles, so that they can live their best life.
We expect all of our colleagues’ actions to reflect the high standards set forth in the Code of Conduct. However, no Code of Conduct can substitute for our own internal sense of ethics, honesty and integrity.
If our employees or contractors find themselves in a situation that “does not feel right,” we encourage them to speak to a supervisor, the next level supervisor, business line management or the compliance department. If an employee does not feel comfortable talking to someone within the company about the issue, he or she can call an external toll-free Compliance Action Line at 866.293.3863 OR 800.793.7741 to report concerns 24 hours a day. Callers may remain anonymous when they report their concerns. Employees and contractors can also report anonymously through our website.
BrightSpring’s Development department pursues growth through acquisitions, management contracts, mergers, requests for information (RFI), requests for proposal (RFP) and new business opportunities. We are committed to expanding our community reach to provide quality care in a variety of service settings including Home Health Care and Rehabilitation Services, Pharmacy Services, Community Living Services, Family & Youth Services, Behavioral Health Services, and Workforce Services – as well as additional lines of business we do not presently offer.
Request for Proposal (RFP) & Request for Information (RFI)
BrightSpring pursues opportunities in each line of business by responding to public and private sector Requests for Proposal (RFP) & Requests for Information (RFI).
The benefits of partnering with BrightSpring are rooted in the knowledge and experience gained during nearly four decades of providing care to the nation’s most vulnerable populations. BrightSpring responds to requests based on our ability to deliver care to those who need it, and assist them in reaching their highest level of independence, with the resources available to a nationwide provider.
Merger & Acquisition
Many existing providers offer services to the same population of clientele as BrightSpring. We engage potential acquisition and merger candidates in both new, and existing markets whose patrons we can best serve and where financial criteria, geographic range, ease-of-integration and growth potential match our goals.
As a nationwide company, BrightSpring has the capability to operate an existing for-profit or non-profit organization to ensure the quality of care for patients is always first. BrightSpring can assist in day-to-day operations allowing leadership teams to remain mission-focused. This is most common in cases where a provider finds that certain operations are no longer aligned with the core mission of their organization or in cases where an organization prefers to no longer serve as a provider.
The benefits of partnering with BrightSpring are evident in the knowledge and experienced gained during nearly four decades of providing care to the nation’s most vulnerable populations. With an unsurpassed commitment to quality, we understand our owners’ dedication to clients. BrightSpring selects partners based on our ability to assist those under their care to reach their highest level of independence with the resources available to a nationwide provider.
We welcome the opportunity to sit down with you and discuss our business philosophy, the acquisition process and next steps. Contact us to get the conversation going.
