DENVER and INDIANAPOLIS — Feb. 8, 2024 — Everside Health and Marathon Health, leading providers of advanced primary care and occupational health for employer and union-sponsored clients, today announced the closing of their merger to deliver advanced primary care, mental health, occupational health, musculoskeletal and pharmacy services to a combined 2.5 million eligible patients through more than 680 health centers across 41 states, and virtually in all 50 states.

The strategic combination of Marathon Health and Everside Health unites two leaders of the advanced primary care industry, serving a growing base of over 630 clients and operating as Marathon Health as of this announcement. Jeff Wells, MD, current Marathon Health CEO, and Ben Evans, current Marathon Health Executive Chairman, will continue to serve the company going forward in their existing roles. Chris Miller, current Everside Health CEO, who led Everside’s tremendous growth over the past eight years and played an instrumental role in architecting this merger, is departing to pursue new opportunities and will remain a significant shareholder of the combined business.

The combined organization will pursue a shared mission to increase employee and union-member access to better care and drive improved health outcomes through a value-based care model, all while helping employer and union partners lower their healthcare costs by over 25%. Through the deployment of a data-driven approach to care and expansion of the organization’s footprint across rural and urban communities, this merger provides patients with enhanced speed to care, improved health outcomes, and increased health equity for those who were previously beyond the reach of traditional in-person care. By focusing on quality of care, rather than patient volume, Marathon Health providers remain engaged with their patients, keeping them active, healthy and out of the emergency room.

Jeff Wells, MD, brings a strong track record of healthcare industry leadership to his role as CEO, serving as Co-Founder and President of OurHealth (a Marathon Health predecessor organization), as well as director of Indiana’s Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning, where he managed a $5 billion healthcare program, prior to assuming the role of CEO for the legacy Marathon Health organization in 2020. Dr. Wells’ vision for the combined company leverages the unique strengths of these organizations to drive innovation, expand service offerings and create a more comprehensive approach to employee and member healthcare.
