Brim Healthcare gets new name, leadership

Changes follow Iasis' $95M acquisition of Brim's hospital business

On the same day Iasis Healthcare completed its purchase of Brim Healthcare’s hospital business, Brim revealed a new brand and top executive.

The company is now dubbed HealthTech Management Services Inc., and Derek Morkel, former senior vice president, is its president and CEO. Phil Mazzuca, Brim’s former president and CEO, has left the company, according to a spokeswoman who was unaware of Mazzuca’s future plans.

With Iasis' $95 million purchase of Brim Holdings and its two hospitals, HealthTech is now focusing on its core hospital management and consulting work and its newer revenue cycle management business. The 39-year-old company currently manages 29 community hospitals in 14 states.
