Consumer Health Network Celebrates 15th Anniversary as Managed Care Leader.
CHN's network has more than quadrupled in size in five years, increasing from about 19,000 health care provider locations to its current 83,000 provider locations.
While CHN's largest market is New Jersey, two recent acquisitions have enabled CHN to diversify its product offerings and extend its reach. In 2001 CHN acquired the business of LifeCare Metrix MSO, a managed behavioral health care organization. In 2002, CHN extended its services into New England with the acquisition of Northeast Health Direct, a well-established Connecticut- based PPO. Additionally, strategic alliances with both regional and national managed care companies have enabled CHN to add new customer-driven products and increase its presence in the marketplace.
"I am very excited to be celebrating this milestone," says Len Weinman, CHN's CEO and president. "The partnerships that we have forged with our clients and outstanding network of providers enable us to meet our continued commitment to provide high quality, cost effective health care. I congratulate our employees on their continued efforts and contributions, which have led directly to our success." Founded in 1988, CHN was purchased in 1999 by Selective Insurance Group, Inc. . CHN will commemorate its anniversary with several celebrations throughout the year.
