The celebration follows the successful launch of center-based services on Maui in 2017. BAYADA Home Care is a nonprofit organization that provides behavioral health services throughout Hawai’i

The Lego wall is a signature feature of the center, along with brightly colored floor mats, a crash pad, a climbing structure, bean bag chairs, crayons, puzzles, books, balls, and blocks. It’s all used as part of an evidence-based approach called applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy to treat individuals with an autism spectrum disorder and related learning or social disorders.

BAYADA Home Health Care recently announced the launch of a value-based PerformancePlus® collaboration with AmeriHealth Caritas, the Philadelphia region’s largest Medicaid and Medicare managed care company and an affiliate of Independence Blue Cross. The partnership marks the first performance-based contract between AmeriHealth Caritas and a home care provider. BAYADA serves people of all ages from more than 350 service offices in 23 states and from locations in Germany, India, New Zealand, and South Korea.

“This new payor relationship and partnership is an exciting and important milestone,” said BAYADA CEO David Baiada. “By leveraging insights from key metrics and working together to improve quality and efficiency, we will help support our community members to live healthier lives, right where they want to be – in their homes.”

This partnership will impact all AmeriHealth Caritas' full-risk managed care health plans in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and any potential future markets served by both organizations, and will span across all BAYADA’s services. This includes nursing and assistive care for children, adults, and seniors, as well as rehabilitation and hospice care.

With the PerformancePlus program, BAYADA will receive financial incentives for meeting quality-based goals that include potentially preventable hospital admissions, readmissions, and emergency room visits, among other key benchmarks.

As one of the largest home care providers to managed care members in the country, our unique, multi-specialty home care capabilities provide critical services to the members of AmeriHealth Caritas' health plans," said Baiada. “We are excited to collaborate with AmeriHealth Caritas on improving client care and look forward to expanding this care model through additional payor partnerships.”

BAYADA’s Nonprofit Transition Offers Stability to Clients and Employees

Perpetuating Our Mission

The incredible impact that home health professionals—from aides and RNs, to clinical managers and office staff—make on the lives of the people they serve cannot be valued highly enough. Working together, they provide the essential care and assistance that those in need require, and exactly where they want it most: in the comfort of their own homes. Unfortunately, our current market is seeing more and more companies being acquired and consolidated, putting at risk work stability for employees and continuity of care for clients.

That’s why BAYADA Home Health Care Founder and Chairman Mark Baiada transitioned the company to a nonprofit in 2019, protecting our organization from sale and providing security for employees and clients alike. While this move to nonprofit is a natural step in our journey, it is unprecedented in the industry—not many company owners would give up an opportunity to sell their company for a big profit. But Mark is not just any company owner, and BAYADA is not just any company.

Choose a rewarding career with endless opportunities at BAYADA.

Here for Good

When Mark started BAYADA in 1975, he invested his life savings of $16,000 in a steadfast belief: people deserve a safe home life with comfort, independence, and dignity. Today, BAYADA has grown to be a leader in home health care, serving 32,000 clients weekly from 360 offices in 23 states across the US and in five countries.

After being the sole owner of BAYADA for nearly 44 years, Mark transitioned the company to a nonprofit to ensure that The BAYADA Way—BAYADA’s philosophy and the spirit and the guidance for the work we do—will live on for generations to come.

Not only does this move provide a stable and growing source of high-quality care services and career opportunities, it will focus our efforts on reinvesting in our mission and culture. We are committed to creating continuing education opportunities to help our employees grow in their careers and better serve our clients, and clinical innovation and technology advancements to allow us to serve our clients in new, more efficient ways.

As leader of BAYADA’s Skilled Nursing Unit, I understand the impact that a stable and supportive work environment has on a nurse’s career—and we are proud to continue to offer that to our employees, and to our clients. There has never been a more exciting time to Love What You Do. To learn more, watch this video.
