A Minnesota home health care business is planning to hire hundreds of Wisconsin workers who will be laid off this month as their employer ceases operations.

GeminiCares, a long-term care provider based in Slinger, Wisconsin, announced last month it will shut down its 11 central Wisconsin locations at the end of May, effectively laying off 701 workers, the Stevens Point Journal reported.

But now Rochester-based International Quality Homecare Corp. (IQHC) is stepping in to help, planning to hire at least 500 of the laid off employees, who will maintain services with their clients, the LaCrosse Tribune reports.

The move will help the company expand its services further into Wisconsin, WTAQ notes.

About 200 GeminiCares employees have already applied for positions at IQHC, the company's president, Aderonke Mordi, told the LaCrosse Tribune, noting IQHC has always wanted to expand into the area.

IQHC also hopes to eventually serve the Milwaukee and Madison areas, the newspaper notes.

The comapny has about 500 employees who provide home care services in roughly 16 cities in Minnesota and Wisconsin, according to its website.
