A leading provider of employee health services says it will be able to enhance its reach and capabilities across Canada thanks to a major acquisition.

“We have built Canada’s leading employee health platform,” said Jamie Marcellus, president of First Health Care, after confirming the company had acquired boutique provider Humanacare.

“This acquisition strategically enhances our EAP offering by combining our 20+ years of nursing experience with Humanacare’s rich 38 year history of providing excellence in counselling and other employee support services,” he added.

“Combined with our existing Employee Assistance Programs, Medical Second Opinion, Disability Support, Caregiving/Healthcare Navigation and Chronic Disease Management Services, Humanacare deepens our expertise in a number of key areas,” he continued.

Craig Richman, president and CEO of Humanacare said the move would ultimately benefit employers and employees alike.

“A single point of contact ensures the employee receives the right support which ultimately benefits the organization,” he said. “This provides an uncompromising health solution to our client base and the broader market.”

The transaction is expected to close on September 1, 2016.
