Best Value Healthcare Acquires MAXhealth

Tampa, Florida. March 12, 2021. Best Value Healthcare LLC (“Best Value Healthcare”), a primary care platform focused on population health, announced today that it has acquired MAXhealth, a primary-care centric, multi-specialty group operating in West Florida, in partnership with MAXhealth’s founders: Tom Blankenship, Neil Bedi, and Inita Bedi. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition immediately adds considerable scale to Best Value Healthcare and strengthens its presence in key attractive adjacent markets within Florida.

Mike Bernstein, the CEO of Best Value Healthcare and an Operating Partner of Arsenal, said, “Arsenal continues to invest in building a strategic, value-based care organization. Best Value was the first cornerstone in that strategy, and now we have added MAXhealth as the second pillar in this effort to build a distinguished clinical leader focused on senior health.”
