CHAMPS Healthcare Launches New Identity and Website to Strengthen Position as Healthcare Consulting Specialists



Building on a track record of tremendous growth, CHAMPS Management Services has taken the next step in claiming its well-deserved position as leading healthcare consulting specialists. CHAMPS Management Services is now CHAMPS Healthcare, and to celebrate, CHAMPS launched a new website and identity that highlights its expertise in four main areas: group purchasing, oncology, pension, and unemployment compensation.

As the business affiliate of The Center for Health Affairs, the leading advocate for Northeast Ohio hospitals, CHAMPS Healthcare has worked in the healthcare arena since 1916, and was one of the very first buying groups in the country. Ninety-five years later, the expertise and vision of CHAMPS consultants to provide business strategy solutions to healthcare facilities has expanded to represent more than 4,300 clients in 47 states.

While our size has grown, CHAMPS continues to pride itself on providing specialized and personalized partnerships with our clients, staying true to our mission to provide business strategy solutions that are time- and cost-effective across the board.
