Ge Healthcare Completes Acquisition Of Finnamore To Form Leading Uk Specialist Health And Social Car

Finnamore brings award winning expertise and relationships built over 20 years of operating in the UK market, to complement GE Healthcares existing consultancy expertise and UK client base. John Deverill, Managing Principal, GE Healthcare Finnamore said: This brings Finnamore together with one of the worlds leading healthcare companies, both with a shared vision to improve health and well-being and to support the development of patient-focused, integrated care. We are creating an organization that can grow and broaden its capabilities to help the NHS and other health and social care providers to improve their financial, operational and clinical performance on a sustainable basis using consultancy, technology, data analytics, and capital. The acquisition is part of GE Healthcares strategy to help healthcare providers navigate some of their most complex challenges in a climate of increased budgetary pressures as chronic disease incidence increases amongst an ageing population. Karl Blight, GE Healthcares General Manager in UK, said: GE Healthcare is investing in advisory capabilities as part of the companys objective to become a true strategic partner to our customers. GE Healthcare Finnamores consultants bring a real depth of expertise to help our UK customers address many of the efficiency challenges they face day to day. Andy Ward, former head of Performance Solutions UK, who will now lead GE Healthcares consultancy work across Northern Europe while continuing to advise the UK team during the integration period, explained: NHS England recently cited a potential 30 billion funding gap by 2020-21 if services continue to be delivered in the same way. We are well positioned to help combat that, drawing from GEs heritage of performance improvement and operational management, and Finnamores experience of quality delivery in the UK. This acquisition increases our scale and expertise to help our customers optimize capacity and ensure that patients are cared for and treated as efficiently and effectively as possible. GE Healthcare Finnamore will be based in London, close to GE Healthcares global HQ in Amersham. GE Healthcare has UK facilities in Amersham, Cardiff, Hatfield and Stevenage.
