OPEN Health now operates in seven locations across 4 continents, with around 520 employees.

“There is significant heritage and experience over many years within each business and this will continue into the four practices. Collaboration and connectivity will be a key driver for OPEN Health to drive value for our clients and also to provide an environment in which our employees can continue to thrive,” OPEN Health said in a statement.

An OPEN Health spokesperson confirmed to PMLiVE that the restructuring will allow “staff to collaborate more easily within their practices, as well as across the broader OPEN Health Group”.

The company also confirmed that clients will benefit too, allowing them to seamlessly tap into each of the practices across the OPEN Health portfolio.
