North Little Rock, Ark. – Arkansas Hospice, the state’s largest nonprofit provider of hospice services, announced today the acquisition of First Choice Senior Care (FCSC) of Little Rock. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Arkansas Hospice President and CEO Judy Wooten said, “The addition of FCSC to our family of companies is a wonderful opportunity for us to meet the needs of seniors where they are, improve their quality of life, and provide an added layer of support for their caregivers.” The non-medical, in-home care afforded by FCSC expands the services of Arkansas Hospice, which added a palliative care division in 2015.

FCSC will operate as a subsidiary of Arkansas Hospice and will continue to provide services to seniors in their homes, retirement communities, assisted living care facilities, and nursing homes across central Arkansas. FCSC co-founder Kayla Bogle stated, “We’re excited to be a part of the Arkansas Hospice organization, their 30-year legacy, and their outstanding reputation for providing the highest quality of care.” Bogle will join Arkansas Hospice in a managerial role over FCSC but emphasized that for those currently receiving services it will be “care as usual,” with no change to care practices or billing. First Choice Senior Care has received numerous awards for excellence in care and accreditations as a provider.
