GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: Health Care Providers » Medical Care
Compare:CHE, FMS, DVA, FSNUY, BDUUF » details
Traded in other countries:LH6.Germany,
LHC Group Inc was incorporated on February 9, 2005. The Company provides post-acute health care services to patients through its home nursing agencies, community-based services agencies, hospice agencies and long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs). The Company through its wholly- and majority-owned subsidiaries, equity joint ventures and controlled affiliates, operates in 30 states within the continental United States. The Company operates in three segments: home-based services, hospice services and facility-based services. In the home-based services segment, the Company provides home-based post-acute health care services through its home nursing and community-based agencies. Its service locations offer services, including skilled nursing, community-based nursing and companion services, non-skilled community-based services (CBS), medically-oriented social services and physical, occupational and speech therapy. The hospices segment provides end-of-life care to patients with terminal illnesses through interdisciplinary teams of physicians, nurses, home health aides, counselors and volunteers. It offers services, including pain and symptom management, emotional and spiritual support, inpatient and respite care, homemaker services, and counseling. The LTACH locations provide services to patients with complex medical conditions who have transitioned out of a hospital intensive care unit but whose conditions remain too severe for treatment in a non-acute setting. The Company is subject to federal, state and local laws, which significantly affects its business.
