Carr Riggs & Ingram Expands in Alabama

Enterprise, Ala.-based Carr Riggs & Ingram LLC (CRI) (FY13 net revenue of $161.3 million) adds to its presence in Alabama by merging Oneonta, Ala.-based Self Maples & Copeland. The team will now operate under the CRI name. This location joins others in the Birmingham, Enterprise and Montgomery markets to form the firm’s Alabama practice.

“Blending Self Maples & Copeland’s long-term care and data processing services expertise with our existing service lines and team positions CRI as the powerhouse provider of health care and IT consulting services across the South,” says William Carr, chairman and MP of CRI. “With both of these sectors continuing their trend of rapid growth, we are strategically investing in resources to match the growing need for related specialty services. Adding the Self Maples & Copeland team and expertise allows us to share best practices and, ultimately, even further strengthen our efficiency of client service delivery.”

Self, Maples & Copeland has provided a broad range of accounting, tax and advisory services for more than 40 years—including several specialties that now broaden CRI’s offerings. Specifically, the firm provides data processing services including payroll processing, application hosting and document management. The firm also delivers a spectrum of specialized services such as Medicare and Medicaid cost reimbursement advisory services, Medicaid and Medicare cost report preparation and HIPAA consultation to various health care providers, many of which are long-term care entities.
