Hosparus Health

Hosparus Health has been a client of Dahlem for several years.  Hosparus offers end of life care, palliative care, in patient end of life care and grief counseling for central Kentucky and Southern Indiana.  About a year and a half ago Hosparus was granted the rights from the Commonwealth of Kentucky to open a PACE center in the counties surrounding Elizabethtown.  The Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) provides comprehensive medical and social services to certain frail, community-dwelling elderly individuals, most of whom are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid benefits.  Part of the service that Hosparus will provide is picking up participants at their home in the morning and taking them back in the evening.  The program does not operate on the weekend.  This is an amazing opportunity for family who work every day to continue to have a homelife with a loved one instead of putting them in some sort of assisted living home.

First, there was a time frame that Hosparus’ license with the State was going to expire.  The Elizabethtown market is extremely tight with the mega Ford battery plant being constructed just south of the city.   Additionally, with the van transportation offered, it was extremely important to have quick access to Interstate 65.  Charlie Dahlem came across the former Coca-Cola Museum and distribution building in a quiet setting and less than a quarter of a mile from the Interstate.  There were not signs on the building and no one could tell him who owned it.  Using a software that Dahlem subscribes to get information on real estate, he found out the Bank of Jamestown had a mortgage on the property.  He called the bank and left a message for a commercial lender.  Within a day Charlie received a call from a gentleman who was one of three who owned the property.  He explained that he had a client who was interested in purchasing the building.  After several rounds of negotiations, Hosparus had the building under contract.  In March of 2024 the building opened to the public and they are now serving participants interested in this service.
