We will transform the delivery of health care as a trusted partner to the companies we serve. Together, we will create a culture of health and become our patients’ most cherished benefit.
In 1990, Harry V. Quadracci, the founder of the nation’s largest privately held commercial printing company, Quad/Graphics, had become frustrated. Medical costs for the company’s 9,000 employees were soaring and there were a growing number of complaints about problems with medical claims and the poor quality of medical care his employees were receiving. He was determined to find a more reliable and efficient way to deliver health care to his employees and their families.
Harry’s idea was to “cut out the middleman” by bringing primary care in-house and transforming the company from a purchaser of health insurance to an investor in employee health and wellness. Onsite health care was brought to life, and QuadMed was formed with the first clinic opening in 1991.
