Business Description

Industry: Business Services » Business Services
Compare:ADP, G, ENV, CMPGY, SGSOY » details
Traded in other countries:HS1.Germany
Healthcare Services Group, Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation was incorporated on November 22, 1976. It provides management, administrative and operating expertise and services to the housekeeping, laundry, linen, facility maintenance and dietary service departments of the health care industry, including nursing homes, retirement complexes, rehabilitation centers and hospitals located throughout the United States. The Company operates two wholly-owned subsidiaries, Huntingdon Holdings, Inc. and Healthcare Staff Leasing Solutions, LLC. Huntingdon invests its cash and cash equivalents as well as manages its portfolio of marketable securities. Healthcare Staff Leasing Solutions offers professional employer organization services to potential clients in the health care industry. Based on the nature and similarities of the services provided, its operations consist of two business segments namely Housekeeping and Dietary. The Company provides its Housekeeping services to essentially all client facilities and provides Dietary services to approximately 600 of such facilities. Housekeeping consists mainly of the cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing of patient rooms and common areas of a client's facility, as well as the laundering and processing of the personal clothing belonging to the facility's patients. Dietary consists of providing dietician consulting professional services, the development of a menu that meets the patient's dietary needs and the purchasing and preparing of the food for delivery to the patients. Both segments provide its services mainly with respect to full service agreements with its clients. In such agreements, the Company is responsible for the management and hourly employees located at its clients' facilities. The Company also provides services on the basis of a management-only agreement for a very limited number of housekeeping clients. The Company's agreements with clients typically provide for a one year service term, cancelable by either party upon 30 to 90 days' notice after the initial 90-day period. The market for its services consists of large number of facilities involved in various aspects of the health care industry, including long-term and post-acute care facilities (skilled nursing facilities, residential care and assisted living facilities, etc.) and hospitals (acute care, critical access, psychiatric, etc.). The Company competes mainly with the in-house support service departments of its potential clients. It also competes for new agreements, as well as renewals of existing agreements, based upon the quality and dependability of its services and the cost savings. The Company's clients are subject to government regulation.
