International SOS and Prime Occupational Medicine Take Next Step in Strategic Joint Venture Partnership


International SOS is expanding its medical services delivery capabilities in the United States through the evolution of its collaboration with Prime Occupational Medicine (Prime).

Building on a successful 10-year strategic Joint Venture Partnership with Prime Occupational Medicine, International SOS North America Medical Services Holdings, Inc. signed a commitment to acquire Prime’s Medical services ‘projects’ business. The newly formed subsidiary, International SOS Healthcare Services U.S., will assume operational oversight and delivery of all on-site and remote support for offshore customers, and many onshore customers, in the US.

The purchase is expected to be finalised towards the end of November. The business will then operate as Prime Healthcare Solutions, an International SOS Company.

A decade ago, International SOS and Prime developed a strategic Joint Venture Partnership to collaborate on the delivery of occupational medicine services throughout the US. The evolution of this collaboration will greatly enhance the ability of both International SOS and Prime to deepen customer engagement.

Joonas Eronen, Chief Executive Officer, North America Medical Services at International SOS commented

We are delighted with the evolution of our partnership with Prime. It is the natural next step for us to support clients in, and around, the US and reinforces our commitment to the region. It will greatly enhance our ability to support the expanding project needs of our customers.

Prime’s Founder and CEO, Dr Luke Lee added

This development reinforces our shared commitment to our customers and operational excellence. The restructuring of our partnership enables Prime to further develop the occupational medicine clinics side of our business, through enhanced capabilities and resources.

International SOS and Prime maintain their strategic Joint Venture Partnership in the occupational medicine clinics space. They will also continue to collaborate to ensure the full range of occupational services are available to both onshore and offshore customers. This includes having access to Prime’s occupational medicine clinics for offsite occupational health services.

Prime was founded in 1994 to deliver the highest quality of medical care to industrial workers. The company’s services evolved into occupational medicine alongside a name change to Prime Occupational Medicine in 2002. By 2018, Prime was the largest occupational medicine provider in the US Gulf of Mexico region with multiple clinical sites across several states. Today it provides  clinic and site management as well as remote case management by board certified occupational medicine physicians.
