Sydney, Australia, August 2, 2019 – Fullerton Health Australia Pty Limited (“Fullerton Health Australia” or the “Company”), part of Fullerton Healthcare Group (“Fullerton Health”), announced today that it has entered into a share sale agreement to divest Fullerton Health Corporate Services (Aust) Pty Ltd (“FHCS”) to Gallagher Bassett Services, Inc. (“Gallagher Bassett”), the risk management services subsidiary of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.
Founded in 1996, FHCS, formerly known as Corporate Services Network, provides third-party claims administration services to clients across Australia, with a focus on outsourced services including claims management, processing and administration services for insurance companies and brokers.
Following Fullerton Health Australia’s acquisition of Healthscope’s medical centre operations in August 2017, the Company has continued to invest in its direct clinical service businesses in Australia.
Ho Kuen Loon, Chairman of Fullerton Health Australia commented: “The divestment of FHCS is an important step towards focusing our activities away from corporate insurance administration services, and towards primary care and corporate healthcare solutions in Australia and New Zealand.”
Steven Harvey, Managing Director of Fullerton Health Australia, commented: "The sale of FHCS to Arthur J. Gallagher & Co will enable us to redeploy resources toward improving our core business segments. I would like to personally thank FHCS General Manager James Needle and his team for their valued contributions to Fullerton Health Australia. Going forward, I am confident that FHCS will continue its path of growth through providing the service commitment that it is known for as part of Gallagher Bassett."
