In April 2017, the Florida based Community Health Solutions, Inc. consulting business d/b/a FQHC Associates merged with Dayton, Ohio based Germane Solutions.
Principal Steve Weinman, who joins Germane's senior leadership as one of two Vice-Presidents in the Health Access Division, leads Germane's combined and expanded business unit, now known as "FQHC Germane." Principals Lesa Peterson and Bill Franz join Germane's Matt Boll as Division Directors. Consultant Kristen Abreu remains part of the FQHC unit, while Jennifer Garces de Marcilla splits her time between Health Access and her new role as Germane's corporate Creative Director.
Well known as a leading graduate medical education (GME) consulting firm, Germane has been rapidly expanding its capacity and capabilities through strategic mergers and acquisitions. In addition to GME and FQHC related services, Germane provides industry leading expertise in Ryan White/HIV programs, clinical quality, grant writing, behavioral health and numerous other services.
