Coram Healthcare of Newport to Move Offices to Colorado
Coram Healthcare Corp. said Wednesday that it plans to move to Boulder, Colo., within a year and build a headquarters there that will be staffed by 60 to 80 new employees.
Coram, which specializes in providing intravenous drug remedies to patients at their homes, now has only four employees in its Newport Beach headquarters.
The company was formed earlier this year in a merger among four companies, including Ontario-based Curaflex Health Services. About 200 former Curaflex employees still work in an office in Ontario; Coram managers aren’t sure whether those jobs will move to Boulder, said Don Cook, a Coram vice president.
In addition, Coram has announced that it will buy Houston-based HMSS, which provides similar home health services. HMSS is now owned by Secomerica Inc., a holding company also based in Newport Beach.
Officials would not disclose the sale price. If approved by government regulators, the transaction is expected to be completed by mid-September.
