ISWH Home Healthcare Progresses Toward Major Expansion as Demand Soars on COVID-19 Threat
Las Vegas, NV - (NewMediaWire) - March 25, 2020 - ISW Holdings, Inc. (OTCMKTS: ISWH) (“ISW”, “ISWH”, or the “Company”), an emerging diversified leader in the healthcare and data infrastructure markets, is excited to provide current and prospective investors with a progress update as the Company expands its Home Healthcare operations in response to the tangible opportunity created by the tragic COVID-19 outbreak, and its dramatic impact on the conventional US healthcare system.
“We are receiving a flood of calls every day as hospitals prepare for overwhelming circumstances,” commented Alonzo Pierce, President of ISWH. “We are waiting for final regulatory approval, and then we will aggressively launch services in Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, and Florida, to accompany our current growing operations in Texas.”
Management notes that, in addition to providing care for chronically disabled or ill home care clients, the Company has positioned itself to act as a supportive mechanism in the event of overflow conditions in the conventional healthcare system. The COVID-19 pandemic represents just such a catalyst, and the Company stands ready to handle a surge in clients as hospitals are forced to discharge patients to home care in order to make room for additional intensive care resources for those suffering from this disease.
The Company is already taking on additional clients in the Houston, San Antonio, and El Paso service areas. As noted in prior communications, the Company has also begun the process of expanding its home healthcare operations outside of the state of Texas, moving into in Nevada (Las Vegas and Reno), New Mexico (Santa Fe), Arizona (Phoenix), and Florida (The Villages). As part of that process, the Company has established a registered agent in New Mexico. Regulatory requirements for each of these locations are in progress.
The Company believes this expansion move has implications that stretch far beyond the immediate COVID-19 crisis. According to a recent report from Business Insider Intelligence, the US home healthcare market is projected to grow from $103 billion in 2018 to $173 billion by 2026 — outpacing growth in all other care types, including hospital care (+5.3% annually) and physician services (+5.6% annually).
Pierce continued, “We were in the right place at the right time to provide support and help communities survive this tragic process. We expect continued sharp growth in revenues and clients served in Q1 and Q2, driven by the coronavirus outbreak. We will provide frequent progress updates for our shareholders as we ramp up operations in new regional service areas. We also plan to continue to expand given our strong margins and our expectation that we are unfortunately still in the early innings of this crisis.”
The Company also wishes to inform shareholders that it will be making a significant partnership announcement in coming days.
