DALLAS, Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AccentCare, one of the nation's largest post-acute healthcare companies, today announced the appointment of Jeffrey S.

Stephan S. Rodgers, CEO of AccentCare, said, "I am extremely pleased to have Jeff join the AccentCare team. His breadth of experience, keen understanding of acute and post-acute healthcare, and deep financial experience at market leading healthcare companies will significantly help to advance our vision of partnering with payers and providers to deliver comprehensive care solutions across the post-acute continuum for our nation's most vulnerable patients."

Mr. Sherman said, "This is an exciting opportunity to participate in the growth of a highly innovative company. AccentCare's collection of capabilities in home healthcare, personal attendant services, and hospice combined with its deep experience managing post-acute populations provides an excellent foundation for building an industry leader.
