July 1, 1982

Jonathan Richman worked with a prominent Boston area health care attorney to form The Health Management Group to provide physician practice management services to clients.

March 1, 1984

Jonathan founded Health Management Associates, Inc.  (“HMA”). At that time, both academic and community Pathologists and other hospital-based physicians were transitioning to fee for service billing. Jonathan was there to guide them into this new financial relationship and provide practice development and ongoing business management and bookkeeping services to their practices.


Bill Perry, Jolan Laibson, and Fred Romano joined HMA.
