FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., October 26, 2021 – Health Network One, a leading provider of specialty benefit management services for health insurers, announced today a strategic partnership with H.I.G. Capital ("H.I.G.") that will allow the company to accelerate delivery of significant and tangible value to leading health plans through alternative payment models.

The company employs more than 250 individuals -- 200 in Florida -- to serve a growing health plan customer base that includes many of the nation’s leading managed care organizations.

The new partnership will support Health Network One to further invest in technology and innovation, boost marketing and communications, enhance clinical solutions and services to ensure best-in-class outcomes, and accelerate growth with existing and new clients. The company will focus on expanding its market coverage and network reach beyond its current footprint, targeting growth opportunities across the east coast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

“We are enthusiastic to enter into this new chapter of growth with H.I.G. Capital,” said Luis Mosquera, CEO of Health Network One. "Over the last two decades, we have built an outstanding business model, as evidenced by our industry-leading provider network and our strategic partnerships with over 20 market-leading health plans. This alliance with H.I.G. will allow us to better serve our health plans and their members, while continuing to operate as a strategic partner to our dedicated provider network.”

Health Network One operates several specialty networks for leading managed care organizations, including the largest outpatient therapy network in every one of its markets. It will also continue to expand its specialized team to meet the growing market demand for managed care.

“Our unique model supports a rare win-win-win in healthcare,” stated Dr. Mary McCluskey, the company’s Chief Medical Officer. “We are able to improve clinical quality and provider satisfaction, continually expand member access to care, while simultaneously delivering cost savings to health plans. This partnership will help amplify our capabilities.”

Marty Bilowich, President of Health Network One, also shared, “Beyond expanding our technology capabilities, we’re using this investment as an opportunity to enhance our marketing efforts, which includes consolidating all of our therapy networks under a singular brand and changing the name of our Florida therapy division from American Therapy Administrators of Florida to Therapy Network of Florida.”

"We are excited to partner with Health Network One’s exceptional team," said Camilo E. Horvilleur, Managing Director at H.I.G. Capital.
