COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Quantum Health, Inc., the market leader in consumer navigation and care coordination, announced today the successful recapitalization of existing shareholders with Great Hill Partners as its new financial sponsor.
“This recapitalization is very exciting news for Quantum Health, our clients and our partners. We believe that Great Hill will be an exceptional partner for us.
