National Healing and Diversified to Merge

Diversified Clinical Services and National Healing Corporation today announced their agreement to merge. Separately, the two companies lead the advanced wound care movement in the US today, and both feature hyperbaric oxygen therapy in their specialized management services. Diversified says it has partnered with more than 325 hospitals. National Healing says it accounts for 30% of managed and outsourced wound healing centers. The new company does not yet have a name.

From today's announcement:

The demand for specialized wound care services is rapidly growing, and the current patient population is underserved by existing wound care programs. An aging population, combined with the rise in diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity, has created a $14 billion global wound care industry. In the United States, there are more than seven million Americans who would benefit from specialized wound care services, but less than one million patients are currently being treated in a dedicated wound care setting.

We wish the new company success in better helping the medical community rise to this serious public health challenge.
