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.
Mike Mitchell joined HMA.
Over 35 Years Later
HMA continues its mission to ensure that each physician practice reaches its financial and organizational potential. Although HMA continues to seek and gain new clients, the majority of our practices have worked with us for over 15 years, including those that were born during the 1980s and 1990s.
