June 3, 2024 (Northbridge, MA) – edHEALTH, a coalition of educational institutions providing greater healthcare-related savings and services through group purchasing, ownership, and data-driven programs, announced today that independent college-preparatory school Wilbraham & Monson Academy has joined edHEALTH effective June 1, 2024.

“Wilbraham & Monson Academy is our third new edHEALTH member-owner this year, and I couldn’t be happier,” said edHEALTH President and CEO A. Tracy Hassett. “Adding another secondary school clearly demonstrates the value we can bring to a wide range of educational institutions.”

Wilbraham & Monson Academy, an independent, college-preparatory, coeducational middle and upper school for approximately 400 boarding and day students in Wilbraham, Massachusetts, looked to edHEALTH for savings and a better healthcare experience for their faculty and staff. The school’s Chief Financial Officer Patricia Gallagher noted, “When I came on board WMA last July and learned of our healthcare needs, I immediately thought of edHEALTH. I previously worked at a founding member school and kept track of edHEALTH’s growth through the years.” Gallagher added, “When I saw edHEALTH was growing in the secondary school space, I knew that WMA would fit well within their member-owned collaborative model.”

“Reuniting with Patty Gallagher, whom I’ve respected for nearly 15 years, at this time is perfect all around. Her comprehensive financial knowledge in higher education and secondary schools will be advantageous in moving the captive forward. We are so fortunate to have her back on the team,” said Hassett.

About edHEALTH: Established in 2013, edHEALTH is the proven employee healthcare solution for higher education and secondary schools. This insurance program provides savings through group purchasing, ownership, and data-driven innovative programs, with over $300 million of annual funding and over $18 million of capital at the stop-loss captive. edHEALTH offers the strength of collaboration with its member-owned institutions and best-in-class business partners. The edHEALTH program is a part of edRISK, a sponsored captive domiciled in Vermont, which is expected to grow significantly in the coming years.
