Central Georgia Health System founded CareSouth on November 1, 1995 with the purchase of a large home healthcare company which had a successful 25 year history. Two distinct lines of business evolved from CareSouth's infancy. The first was the direct delivery of patient care and the second was the delivery of business services to others that owned homecare agencies.
In 1998 the executive management team working with a Washington, D.C. based private equity firm, Capitol Partners, acquired the company from Central Georgia Health System which enabled both of CareSouth's business lines to grow.
Today, CareSouth owns Medicare certified home health agencies in Georgia, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
The senior management team is led by Rick Griffin, President & CEO and John Southern, CFO. CareSouth is a portfolio company of Capitol Partners.
