In the United States, Extendicare’s wholly owned subsidiary, Extendicare Health Services, Inc. (EHSI) offers a continuum of health care services, including nursing care, assisted living and related medical specialty services, such as subacute care and rehabilitative therapy on an inpatient and outpatient basis. EHSI also applies its operating expertise, extensive resources and economies of scale to provide purchasing, management, and consulting services to third-party providers.
In Canada, Extendicare operates through its wholly owned subsidiary, Extendicare (Canada) Inc. (ECI). ECI is a major provider of home health care in Canada through its ParaMed Home Health Care division and, like EHSI, provides purchasing, management and consulting services to third-party providers.
