Health Support Agencies Merge to Share Administrative Resources

With the impending retirement of its executive director, Easter Seals of Nebraska began talks with the Visiting Nurse Association of Omaha about forming an alliance around their missions to provide community health services. Through their exploration process, the two organizations determined that a merger would be mutually beneficial. Easter Seals became a division of the larger Visiting Nurse Association, eliminating the need to hire a new executive director. The merger also provided the Visiting Nurse Association with an avenue to expand its services beyond Omaha’s borders. The combined entity realized significant cost savings through the consolidation of the chief executive role, administrative efficiencies, and shared office space. The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund provided a challenge grant to facilitate the merger.
