BHSF has bought occupational health service provider Abbott
Burke and placed it in a new division called BHSF Corporate Healthcare.
BHSF can trace its
roots back to the formation of the Birmingham Hospital Saturday Fund in 1873.
Abbott Burke Associates was formed in 1999.Peter Maskell of BHSF says; “BHSF
has supported workplace health since 1873.
We currently provide occupational health services to a number of our
client businesses under contract. We
perceive that the market for occupational health products is large and
growing. It has been our ambition for
some while to provide such services ourselves and Abbott Burke gives us our
foothold in that market .We are looking to substantially grow BHSF Corporate
Healthcare by a combination of organic growth and further acquisition.”
