WTWH Media, LLC has acquired two digital publications from 1105 Media, Inc. — HME Business and Mobility Management. Financial terms were undisclosed.
The two media properties are focused on the home medical equipment industry and mobility professionals, including rehabilitation suppliers and clinicians. WTWH is a portfolio company of the Colorado-based private equity firm Mountaingate Capital and the parent organization of Aging Media Network, which it acquired this year.
These two additions build upon WTWH’s presence in the health care sector.
“We are thrilled to welcome HME Business and Mobility Management into the WTWH Healthcare and Life Sciences portfolio,” said George Yedinak, EVP Healthcare of WTWH. “These publications complement our existing health care-focused brands, and we’re excited to offer new resources to our advertisers to expand into these adjacencies, building upon the 20+ year history of HME Business and Mobility Management.”
HME Business (formerly Home Health Products) covers the entire spectrum of the home medical equipment industry with in-depth news, analysis, product trends and feature stories reported from a product perspective.
Mobility Management is the only industry publication written especially for mobility and rehab suppliers and clinicians. Long-time editor, Laurie Watanabe, will continue to oversee both publications and will join the WTWH Healthcare and Life Sciences team.
The transaction marks WTWH’s third acquisition of 2023. The company in July purchased Aging Media Network, the parent company of Hospice News, and PMQ Pizza magazine in June.
“The combination strengthens WTWH’s Healthcare and Life Sciences offerings and continues to foster industry connections, promote thought leadership, and facilitate collaboration across the health care sector,” the media company indicated in a press release.
