MediZine Bulks Up

MediZine LLC, a publisher of health and fitness magazines like Healthy Living, has acquired the assets of University Health Publishing Group. No financial terms were disclosed. Veronis Suhler Stevenson has acquired a control position in MediZine last year.





It was announced today that MediZine LLC, a leading consumer health education company, has acquired the assets of University Health Publishing Group (UHPG). With its 24 year history of consumer health information and education collaboration with some of the most esteemed universities in the country, including Johns Hopkins University and the University of California, Berkeley's School of Public Health, UHPG provides millions of readers worldwide with a variety of print and online subscription-based products. Terms were not disclosed.


“For many years, we have discussed the possibility of joining forces with UHPG in our mutual goal to educate consumers about their health needs,” said Traver Hutchins, CEO & President of MediZine LLC, a portfolio company of Veronis Suhler Stevenson. “With this acquisition, we are now able to build on UHPG's impressive heritage to reach more consumers with extensive research-based health content. This complements MediZine's current programs reaching more than 100 million consumers each year.” He added, “Stuart Jordan, UHPG Chief Operating Officer has done a tremendous job of developing the company's assets which will be a growth catalyst for MediZine, as we continue to build out our multi-media and integrated health education platform.”


“Everyone at UHPG is excited by the prospect of expanding our existing consumer health brands and creating new products that will now be possible thanks to the completion of this deal,” said Jordan. “I am personally happy to be joining the MediZine team which shares the same mission to further the consumer health information experience.”
