September 28, 2018

WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 28, 2018--Genex Services, a leader in medical cost containment and disability management services, has announced it is acquiring Priority Care Solutions, a leading specialty managed care services and network provider for the workers’ compensation industry, from Century Equity Partners, Boston.
