In 1959, David Jones Sr. met H. Wendell Cherry during a job interview, and in 1961 they formed a nursing home company together.

In 1962, the company opened its first Heritage House nursing home on Liverpool Lane with 78 beds and by 1968 they went public as Extendicare Inc. at a price of $8 per share. Extendicare expanded quickly and opened its 50th nursing home in 1969 making it the largest nursing-home operator in the nation. The company bought five hospitals in 1969 as well.

In 1972, they decided to sell all of their nursing homes to focus on hospital ownership and in 1974 they changed the name to Humana.

Humana got into the insurance game, offering its first health insurance plans after the loss of an HMO contract at a hospital in Arizona in 1984.
