The combined company will have a greater capacity to help post-acute and community-based providers increase efficiency and improve clinical, financial, and operational performance to advance patient care.
“Fazzi Associates complements the Mediware family and further strengthens our ability to advance high-quality and efficient patient care while also driving down health care costs,” said Bill Miller, CEO of Mediware. “Fazzi Associates’ extensive industry knowledge and insights will help us identify potential new opportunities for expansion which is core to Mediware’s long-term growth strategy.”
Mediware plans to maintain Fazzi Associates’ reputable brand and western Massachusetts headquarters; the firm’s leadership team will continue to lead Fazzi Associates lines of business.
