Worcester Telegram quotes David Williams about Optum’s takeover of Reliant

July 23, 2018

Reliant –formerly Fallon Clinic– has 2600 employees and is almost 90 years old. Optum is purchasing them. Here’s what David Williams told the  Worcester Telegram:

“A lot of these systems are under strain,” said David E. Williams, president of the Health Business Group, a Boston-based consulting firm. “I think what you’re seeing at the same time is there are some national organizations, health plans and companies like Optum that do have a lot of capital and that have diversified businesses that are looking for growth opportunities.”
