Heritage Healthcare Services Inc., based in Albuquerque, has been purchased by an affiliate of the Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society, the company announced Monday.

Heritage provides home-care services at five locations in New Mexico and one in Arizona. The deal with the Good Samaritan Society closed on Saturday, according to a news release. A price was not disclosed.

The locations run by Heritage, which was founded in 1993 by husband-and-wife team Len and Liz Trainor, will keep the same name. No layoffs are planned, Len Trainor said.

He said Heritage’s home health care, hospice and personal services will  complement Good Samaritan’s holdings, which include Manzano del Sol Village in Albuquerque.

“With the health care environment … I think the trends have been and continue to be more partnering, more collaboration,” Trainor said.

The South Dakota-based Good Samaritan Society has 240 locations in 24 states, including eight in New Mexico, Hoffman said. It operates assisted-living centers and nursing homes and offers in-home and skilled nursing care.

The society said the purchase would strengthen its “robust offering of health-care services in New Mexico and Arizona.”

Heritage offers skilled nursing, physical therapy, hospice care and personal care. Personal services include transportation, meal planning and preparation, bathing and light housekeeping.

Heritage has 2,000 employees, about 75 percent of whom are full time.

They work with clients throughout Albuquerque and surrounding communities, as well as Santa Fe, Cuba, Las Cruces, Las Vegas, N.M., and in Phoenix.

Heritage was recently included on the Albuquerque Journal’s Private 100 list of the state’s most prosperous companies.
