LHC Group, Inc. (the "Company") is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K/A (Amendment No. 1) in order to amend its previously filed Current Report on Form 8-K, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 11, 2020.


The Company announced that on July 10, 2020, Robert Williams withdrew his acceptance of employment and appointment to be the Company’s Chief Financial Officer due to a recent and unforeseeable change in his personal circumstances unrelated to his professional qualifications and experience.  As a result, Joshua L. Proffitt will serve as the President of the Company and continue to serve as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer until a new Chief Financial Officer is appointed.  Mr. Williams was identified, recruited, and vetted by Russell Reynolds Associates, an independent third-party professional search firm, and Russell Reynolds Associates remains engaged on the search and will continue to assist the Company in finding another candidate to serve as Chief Financial Officer.








Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
