AccentHealth Expands Point-of-Care Network with Acquisition of Everwell Waiting Room Television Network
Deal Continues Growth of AccentHealth's National Media Platform
NEW YORK, NY (February 14, 2013) – AccentHealth, the nation’s largest media network at the Point-of-Care, announced today it has purchased the Everwell waiting room television network, a division of MediVista Media, LLC. The deal follows AccentHealth's recent acquisition of Havas Impact’s health panel business, a purchase that doubled AccentHealth’s national footprint. Following these two acquisitions, AccentHealth now provides patient education in over 30,000 locations nationwide, serving over 66,000 medical practitioners and their patients.
"We are pleased to add Everwell’s offices to our waiting room television network," said John Curbishley, EVP, Business and Product Development for AccentHealth. "We look forward to working with our new physician office partners to introduce AccentHealth’s award winning programming service."
"National brand advertisers are increasingly taking advantage of the unique targeting and measurability features of AccentHealth’s networks," said Dan Stone, CEO of AccentHealth, "By expanding our national footprint we can become an even more integral part of their media plans."
MediVista Media will continue to operate its existing Everwell content business producing and distributing health video programming across multiple platforms.
