Health Management Associates in Lansing has acquired NPO Solutions, a California-based management consulting firm that specializes in expanding the capacity of social sector organizations. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
NPO was founded in 1994 and focuses on strategy, capacity building, and evaluation. It will be a division of HMA Community Strategies.
“NPO Solutions has an impressive track record of helping clients strengthen their organizations and expand their reach,” says Jay Rosen, founder and president of Health Management. “Like HMA, NPO Solutions builds longstanding relationships and tailors solutions to suit each client’s needs. Their expertise fits nicely with the work being done by our HMA Community Strategies colleagues and further expands the skills and services we can offer clients.”
Warren Riley, founder and president of NPO, and his consultants have worked with hundreds of nonprofit and public sector organizations across the country.
“We are very excited to join HMA and the HMA Community Strategies team. We have worked with HMA colleagues over the past few years, and I think this is a very good fit,” Riley says. “We bring a shared commitment to collaborative, mission-driven work. In partnership with HMA’s team of experts, we can continue and grow what we currently do and what we aspire to do.”
The acquisition adds to Health Management’s California footprint; NPO has four offices in the state.

Clients include government, public and private providers, health systems, health plans, community-based organizations, institutional investors, foundations, and associations.
