Sutherland to acquire health care-related firm

Rochester Business Journal
December 11, 2012

Sutherland Global Services Inc. late Monday night announced it has agreed to acquire India-based Apollo Health Street Ltd. to boost Sutherland’s health care business.

The deal is expected to close in February. Apollo Health, a subsidiary of Apollo Hospitals Group, provides strategic and technical support to more than 150 health care partners through United States and has 10 global operation centers.

The acquisition is to add 3,200 employees to Sutherland.

Officials from Sutherland said Apollo Health will be integrated into Sutherland’s business. Sutherland plans to combine Apollo Health’s technology and global resources with Sutherland’s secure and scalable global infrastructure.

“We have been extremely impressed by Apollo Health Street’s deep domain understanding and world-class platform based delivery capabilities,” said Dilip Vellodi, CEO of Sutherland, in a statement. “With this acquisition, Sutherland addresses the central challenge facing major North American and European health care providers and payers: to provide exceptional service to patients in a cost-effective manner.

“Apollo’s expertise, combined with our proven capabilities, strengthens our portfolio of payer, provider, and health IT solutions in driving significant value to our client base.”

Sutherland, based in Perinton, ranked second on the Rochester Business Journal’s most recent Private Companies list, with 2,600 local employees.
