Thrive Skilled Pediatric Care, a national provider of clinical home care for medically fragile children, has acquired The Pediatric Connection, which has an office in Spotsylvania County.

The Pediatric Connection is a nearly 20-year-old firm that provides pediatric home care, medical equipment and nutritional supplies in Virginia. Besides Spotsylvania, it has locations in Charlottesville and Richmond.

The company was a natural fit for Thrive, which provides skilled pediatric home care in Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, North Carolina, and Texas. It was looking to provide additional lines of service in the pediatric home care space said Greg Serrao—chairman, president and CEO of Thrive—in a news release.
