NueHealth Acquires Blue Chip

Mar 02, 2016

Leawood, KS-based NueHealth has acquired Blue Chip Partners, Inc. NueHealth is a privately owned company that connects providers to consumers through clinically integrated provider networks. NueHealth connects providers directly to consumers and aids them in delivering value-based payment options and improved outcomes. To deliver this improved value, NueHealth leverages proprietary technologies, online platforms, bundled payments and targeted programs and services. NueHealth gives providers and payers the tools and resources to stay ahead of healthcare’s continued evolution, while giving employers, insurance companies and patients access to a simplified model and affordable, high-quality care.

Blue Chip Partners, headquartered in Michigan, is an 11-year-old company that focuses on developing, managing and optimizing ambulatory surgical centers. NueHealth’s acquisition of Blue Chip will be beneficial to both entities. To continue delivering a new means of transparent quality care to healthcare consumers, NueHealth is facilitating multiple growth opportunities for its clinically integrated provider networks. Earlier this year they announced the launch of NueHealth Greater Philadelphia, a multi-specialty quality network serving the Delaware Valley area. The addition of 11 facilities, with locations that range from Southern California and Nebraska to Northern Maryland and Florida, will enhance the quality and offerings of these networks across the country.

“Both NueHealth and the founders of Blue Chip are excited about this acquisition,” said Jeff Leland, who focuses on employer and payer relations and is the executive vice president of business development for NueHealth. “We’re going to leverage our innovative programs and services to help these acquired facilities remain sustainable during the transition to pay-for-value, lower costs for the benefit of patients and take full advantage of clinical integration with our networks.”

Terms were not released.
