BALTIMORE, Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Evergreen Health today announced that it has finalized an agreement with a group of investors to finance its capital needs--a crucial step towards securing Evergreen's long-term success.
"This is an exciting day for Evergreen's members and employees. I am very much looking forward to working with our group of investors, who share my passion for providing Maryland residents with affordable, high-quality health care," said Dr. Peter Beilenson, CEO of Evergreen Health. "As a result of this agreement, Evergreen will be in a much stronger financial position than it has ever been. I am extremely thankful to Governor Larry Hogan, Insurance Commissioner Al Redmer, Senator Ben Cardin and Congressman Elijah Cummings.
