The Capita Group, a provider of integrated professional support service solutions in the UK, has acquired US-based Insurance Medical Group (IMG), for an undisclosed sum.
With 70 employees in Durham, IMG provides medico-legal reporting, diagnostics, and pro-active physiotherapy and treatment services.
The acquisition, which follows the acquisitions, last year, of Premier Medical Group and First Assist, adds further expertise and capacity to Capita’s wellbeing and health business.
The acquisition also opens up new parts of the medico-legal market, particularly claims management companies and small and medium sized law practices.
Jason Powell, who moved to Capita with the acquisition of Premier Medical Group and now heads up Capita’s medical reporting business, said IMG produces more than 20, 000 medical reports each year and arranges more than 50,000 physiotherapy appointments through the Physio-link network.
"This acquisition will add important new expertise to Capita’s range of health services, enabling us to provide of a full suite of medical reporting and screening services.
"The deal also further demonstrates Capita’s commitment to, and investment in, the medico-legal market," Powell said.
