Marathon Health teams up with private equity firm to expand footprint

Marathon Health, a company helping employers set up workplace health centers, has formeda strategic partnership with private equity firm General Atlantic to grow its footprint.

Under the agreement, General Atlantic became the majority owner of Winooski, Vt.-based Marathon Health, and Goldman Sachs' capital investment arm ended its three-year partnership with the company. 

Marathon helps employers set up onsite health clinics in an effort to improve employee health and wellness, while also cutting healthcare costs.
