Interim HealthCare, a leading national home care, hospice, and healthcare staffing franchise, announced today the addition of two new franchisees in Middle Tennessee and Connecticut

“We welcome our new franchisees in Tennessee and Connecticut to our network of more than 300 offices which offer clients the confidence provided by our entire continuum of care ranging from non-medical senior home care to pediatrics to palliative and hospice care,” Kathleen Gilmartin, president, and CEO of Interim HealthCare said. “Our new franchisees are already involved in their local communities, a characteristic which has proven to be a driver in providing the very highest quality of home health care, Interim HealthCare’s trademark for nearly five decades now.”

Carol Penterman, owner of Interim HealthCare of Middle Tennessee, was formerly the Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Nashville Opera Association. After 19 years, Penterman decided to further her commitment to the community and chose home care as a new way to serve the community and maintain the values of excellence and integrity she established at the Opera. The franchise began serving clients in late 2012 and plans to hold grand opening festivities later this year.
