Newark, New Jersey (PRWEB) November 18, 2020
BCT Partners is pleased to announce the acquisition of Critical Measures, a MN-based corporate training and management consulting firm specializing in diversity and cross-cultural communication, primarily in the healthcare field. This acquisition will enable BCT Partners to broaden the scope of their already extensive service offerings to focus on the intersection of two of the most challenging issues of our time: COVID-19 and systemic racism.
As Dr. Randal Pinkett, CEO of BCT Partners, states, "COVID-19 has put an even greater spotlight on the inequities in healthcare. New federal data reveals that African Americans and Latinos in the US have been three times more likely to contract COVID-19 than white residents and nearly twice as likely to die from it.” Dr. Pinkett continues, “Critical Measures has a national recognized reputation for being at the forefront of mitigating critical healthcare inequities. Combined with our offerings at BCT, such as precision data analytics, we have the opportunity to ensure that all people have equal access to quality care.
David Hunt, President and CEO of Critical Measures adds, "I am very pleased to be joining the BCT Partners team. As an attorney with employment and civil rights law expertise, I founded Critical Measures almost 20 years ago, intending to make a lasting social impact. I look forward to continuing this work, particularly in the area of health equity, with the additional resources at BCT Partners. Having partnered with the principals at BCT for many years, I have always been impressed by their stellar reputation and their commitment to creating a more just and inclusive society.”
Critical Measures’ clients include Aetna, The American Medical Association, and Microsoft, among many others. As a result of the acquisition, those clients and organizations that BCT works with, like the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, will benefit from the combination of enhanced offerings including the in-depth knowledge that Critical Measures has of cultural, legal and clinical healthcare matters.
