I look forward to working with our talented and dynamic team and helping to further scale the great business that they have built.”
Vincent Bradley is a seasoned healthcare leader with a strong track record of success leading large healthcare businesses and incorporating quality and convenience into the consumer experience. Over the course of his career, Bradley has served as Divisional Vice President at Take Care Health Systems (now Premise Health), the premier provider of employer-based healthcare services. He was also President and CEO of Banfield Pet Hospital, the world’s largest veterinary practice with more than 1,000 hospitals and over 4,000 doctors, and he founded and served as CEO at Heart + Paw, a multi-site veterinary practice focused on a modern, integrated and digitally enabled experience for pet owners.
In 2020, Advantia Health continued to grow and provide vital health services to Ob-Gyn patients nationally despite challenging economic and healthcare environments. In January, Advantia announced a $45 million investment by BlueMountain Capital Management, LLC, a subsidiary of Assured Guaranty Ltd. In March, Advantia brought telehealth services online at all 50 practices to support women’s health needs during the pandemic, and brought virtual breastfeeding support to thousands of mothers in Philadelphia through its Pacify app. In the spring Advantia expanded into Washington D.C. by acquiring Reiter, Hill & Johnson, and welcomed Kathy Kaluhiokalani as the company’s first Chief Operating Officer. This past month, Advantia announced construction was underway on its new flagship practice, Liv by Advantia Health, which will open in March 2021 at 1443 U Street NW, Washington, D.C. In 2021, Advantia will continue to expand through organic growth and acquisitions, delivering convenient, coordinated care to even more women nationally.
