Aria Assistance, formed after the management buyout of Europ Assistance UK & Ireland, is fulfilling its commitment to providing occupational health services with the acquisition of Premier Occupational Healthcare (POHC).
POHC, which has worked in partnership with Europ Assistance since 2010, is a provider of occupational health and wellbeing services.
The acquisition combines Aria Assistance's assistance network, case management experience and UK contact centres with POHC's expertise in its sector.
Aria Assistance and POHC expect to offer employers services to manage the business and regulatory compliance needs of employee health.
These include management referrals, medical check-ups and fit notes, drug and alcohol tests, absence management and a growing host of other occupational health and wellbeing services.
POHC will remain a distinct business with Paul Richards appointed to the position of managing director of POHC as a result of the acquisition.
Patrick Leroy, CEO at Aria Assistance, said: "This acquisition comes at an exciting time for our developing healthcare business and now we have POHC fully on board, we look forward to working together on major opportunities."
