LUKE Acquires Coastal Clinical and Management Services to Expand Support of Government Agencies

ROCKLEDGE, Fla., June 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LUKE Holdings, Inc. (“LUKE”), a trusted leader in healthcare staffing for the U.S. Government, announced it has acquired Coastal Clinical and Management Services, Inc. (“CCMS”). This strategic move marks a significant milestone in LUKE's mission to enhance support for government agencies, particularly in the critical areas of behavioral health, caregivers, and broader healthcare services.

With this acquisition, LUKE significantly strengthens its Department of Homeland Security (DHS) offerings and increases its capacity to provide comprehensive caregiver and healthcare worker services to various U.S. Government agencies. The merger of LUKE and CCMS expands a proven network of healthcare expertise, streamlining operations, optimizing resources, and delivering value to its government partners.

"We share a dedication to supporting our federal customers including DHS,” said John Sanders, CEO of LUKE. “CCMS has a history, not unlike LUKE, of meeting the evolving needs of our customers. This acquisition aligns seamlessly with LUKE's overarching vision of becoming a premier staffing company. By integrating CCMS’ expertise and resources, LUKE aims to fortify its capabilities in delivering best-in-class staffing solutions and fulfilling its mission of care.”

"We hold the same values and commitment to providing care and look forward to joining the LUKE team,” said Julia Mutch, CEO of CCMS. “The integration of our companies will not only bolster our position in the market but also enable us to better serve our customers by combining best practices and capitalizing on each of our strengths. We will be stronger together.”
