Formation of Laughlin Healthcare Group

Rod Laughlin announces new healthcare venture

ALPHARETTA, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rod Laughlin, founder and former president of Regency Hospital Company, announced today the formation of Laughlin Healthcare Group (LHG). The new company will offer consulting and other services to hospitals and will acquire strategic home health and hospice operations.

Laughlin Healthcare Group will provide consulting services in all aspects of hospital and provider operations. Their team is highly experienced in technology, sales/marketing, human resources, revenue cycle management, and clinical/compliance and project development. LHG specializes in specialty hospital operations.

The company will also acquire, develop and operate home health and hospice agencies. The company’s founder, Rod Laughlin has a longstanding history in the healthcare industry, and is positioning the new hospice/home healthcare company to be a leader in providing high acuity and high quality services in the home.

“I want to transform the home healthcare industry to deliver higher acuity services in the home,” Laughlin said. “It’s where the country has to go. The best way to save money realistically is to keep patients out of institutions, when possible.”

Over the course of his career, Laughlin has developed and sold several healthcare companies, including Regency and Transitional Hospitals Corporation, and has always built his companies to meet the needs of patients in a way that others have not. He finds that success in healthcare is achieved when there is a provider focus on strong customer service and high quality care from the patient’s perspective.

“We want to treat patients just like we would treat a member of our family…and we want to do that in the comfort of their own home. Our staff will build those relationships with everyone we serve. Our focus will be on the patient as a person and not just on the procedures we are providing.”

The Laughlin Healthcare Group is located in Alpharetta, Georgia. For more information, please contact 678-894-3268 or visit
