Business Briefs


 

HealthStream has relocated to its new offices in the Capitol View development downtown.

Nashville-based Cumberland Pharmaceuticals reported 38 percent revenue growth in the first quarter of 2019. Other highlights include FDA notification the company's new drug application (NDA) for methotrexate was complete and acceptable for filing, along with a September 2019 date for an approval decision. Cumberland has also reached an exclusive agreement with Hong Kong's WinHealth Pharmaceuticals to assume responsibility for Acetadote® and Caldolor® in China, the world's second largest drug market for pharmaceuticals after the U.S. The company recently completed a strategic review of their portfolio, partners and organization to guide decision-making.

Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. and Nashville-based MedEquities Realty Trust, Inc. have announced the completion of Omega's acquisition of all of the outstanding shares of MedEquities. The transaction represents an enterprise value of approximately $600 million for MedEquities and further diversifies Omega's assets and operators. Following the acquisition, Omega will continue to be the premier publicly traded real estate investment trust (REIT) focused principally on skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), by adding a diversified portfolio of investments including 34 properties located in 7 states and operated by 11 different operators.

Nashville-based BerniePortal announced the launch of the BerniePortal Broker Network in late May. Searchable on the BerniePortal website, this network allows employers to find and access local HR and benefits expertise quickly and easily. Unveiled at BerniePortal's recent users conference, Weekdays with Bernie, over 100 local brokerage partner firms across the country have already created profiles on the network. Through the Broker Network, employers can search by location and view brokerage descriptions, scope of practice, and client reviews.

Last month, Community Health Systems, Inc. announced definitive agreements to sell two Florida hospitals to affiliates of Adventist Health System Sunbelt Healthcare Corporation. The two hospitals are 193-bed Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center in Davenport and 160-bed Lake Wales Medical Center in Lake Wales. Subject to customary regulatory approvals and closing conditions, the transaction is expected to close in the late third quarter of 2019. In other corporate news, CHS Division President Paul Smith has announced plans to leave the company by the end of this month.

Last month, Nashville-based PathGroup, one of the largest private providers of pathology, clinical and molecular laboratory services in the United States, announced that it has acquired Pathologists Bio-Medical Laboratories (PBM), a leading provider of pathology services based in Dallas.

Murfreesboro Medical Clinic and SurgiCenter (MMC) has selected Allscripts Healthcare Solutions' 2bPreciseTM to support its precision medicine strategy, beginning with pharmacogenomics (PGx) at the point of care. An advocate of genomics and PGx, MMC providers found it difficult to apply genomic insights to medical decisions during patient encounters because test results were not integrated with clinical information or easily available within the EHR workflow. Now, 2bPrecise, a wholly owned Allscripts subsidiary, will serve as the final bridge between the science of genomics and clinical application. It consumes data from any lab source or knowledge base and delivers it in an actionable format and vocabulary to the clinical workflow, regardless of the provider's EHR.
