New Century Health

New Century Health is the first company to successfully address value-based care in two of the largest and fastest-growing areas of medical spend: oncology and cardiology.  Water Street partnered with New Century Health in 2010 when it was a regional business.  Working with management, our team transformed New Century Health into a national leader serving more than 3 million members across 38 states.  We leveraged our team’s expertise and network to foster partnerships with the nation’s premier health plans, expand the company’s presence into new markets and launch new products.  Over the course of our eight-year partnership, New Century Health tripled its revenues, operating income, and employee base.  In 2018, we divested New Century Health to Evolent Health (NYSE: EVH).
