INDIANAPOLIS, IN – June 17, 2014 – RepuCare OnSite, a worksite health and wellness provider, has acquired comprehensive wellness provider Spectrum Health Systems. The combined entity will offer a broad scope of scalable employer health and wellness solutions customizable for employers of any size and industry.
Spectrum Health Systems, founded in 1997 by Sally Stephens and Johan Gormal, provides employers throughout Indiana and the Midwest region with “high touch” wellness and health risk management solutions including several wellness clinics. Its client base includes hospital systems, school corporations, manufacturing, service providers and municipalities.
“Our acquisition of Spectrum Health Systems expands our employer health service offering, enables us to offer a continuum of comprehensive wellness and clinic services, and positions the company as the only worksite health provider in Indiana offering wellness capabilities with proven health outcomes,” said Gerry Erb, CEO of RepuCare OnSite. “Chronic conditions account for 75% of healthcare costs today and effective wellness programs that mitigate unhealthy lifestyle behaviors, and risk factors are the only solution to bending the healthcare cost curve. We also gain access to a talented team of wellness professionals that have helped members improve their health and employers to contain their healthcare costs.”
“We’ve had a ten year relationship with RepuCare having collaborated on several projects. The timing was right to combine our resources and capabilities to meet the growing demand imperative for employers to manage their healthcare costs”, added Sally Stephens, President, Spectrum Health Systems. “We have years of outcomes to validate the effectiveness of our ‘high touch’ wellness programs. We’re both agile, entrepreneurial, innovative companies and our cultural compatibility gave us the confidence that this was an excellent fit that would benefit both our clients and employees.”
Both Sally Stephens and Johan Gormal will retain key executive positions in the combined company. Billie Dragoo, founder of RepuCare in 1995, will serve as RepuCare OnSite’s Chairperson of the Board and Gerry Erb will be CEO. RepuCare OnSite will primarily operate out of the Spectrum corporate office and retain a satellite office at RepuCare OnSite.
Strategian Advisors served as the financial advisor to RepuCare OnSite on the transaction.
