KKR’s BrightSpring snaps up Abode Healthcare, Bain Capital Tech Opps, HGGC double down on construction-tech

KKR-backed BrightSpring Health Services acquires Summit Partners’ Abode Healthcare and Buildertrend has acquired CoConstruct.


There’s been no shortage of home health and hospice dealmaking over the last several months (including the non-medical kind of home care), and the exuberance of the market is only continuing. Now, KKR-backed BrightSpring Health Services has clinched a deal for Summit Partners’ Abode Healthcare in a bid to substantially build out its home health and hospice business, according to five people familiar with the pending transaction.

The transaction, which is currently awaiting regulatory approval, values Abode at approximately $775 million, the people said.

Abode aligns with BrightSpring’s overall strategy of building out the three complementary components to provide integrated care for complex and in-need patient populations with multiple chronic comorbidities. The company primarily serves seniors and individuals with behavioral healthcare needs, with 80 percent of its services provided in or to the home.

Abode adds to the streak of hospice care activity in recent months, with Webster Equity’s Bristol Hospice newly in the market and a process for the home health and hospice unit of Brookdale Senior Living in the late stages.

Homebuilding-tech: You need tech for everything these days, right? Private equity-backed Buildertrend has acquired CoConstruct, a complementary construction software technology business, as the homebuilding industry finds itself ripe for innovation, Milana Vinn writes.

“The industry is having trouble keeping up with new home sales, and Buildertrend can be a powerful tool to help boost efficiency and control costs,” Phil Meicler, managing director at Bain Capital Tech Opportunities, told PE Hub. Read more here.
