Curi Holdings, Inc. & Constellation, Inc. Announce Plans to Merge

Raleigh, N.C. – Feb. 1, 2023 – Curi Holdings, Inc. (Curi) and Constellation, Inc. (Constellation), two of the nation’s leading providers of medical professional liability (MPL) insurance, have signed an agreement to merge. Combined, the two organizations will build on their legacies of mutual ownership, client service, and innovation while creating a national brand that seamlessly delivers the products, services, and valued advice that healthcare providers need to thrive in a rapidly evolving landscape.

With more than $2 billion of consolidated assets and generating nearly $400 million in revenue, the merged company will serve more than 50,000 physicians, healthcare providers, and organizations across the U.S. The combination, with minimal geographic overlap between the two companies, positions the merged organization to continue meeting its member-owners wherever they are in their own evolutionary journey.

“We couldn’t be more excited to announce this merger with Constellation,” said Curi CEO Jason Sandner. “Trends in the healthcare industry over the last decade call for partners who can deliver services to healthcare providers at a national scale and in a more diversified way. Curi expects to be that partner, and this merger allows us to continue fulfilling our mission for another 50 years and beyond.”

Curi and Constellation are mission-driven companies with long-standing commitments to excellence in serving the physician community and healthcare businesses. Both organizations are committed to disciplined underwriting, proactive risk mitigation and supportive claims management, underscoring a deep commitment to defending good medicine. Recent investments in complementary service lines, such as wealth management, industry analytics, and technology platforms, have also strengthened both companies’ portfolios, positioning them as leaders in the MPL space and beyond.

“This merger represents the joining of two like-minded companies, both with a vision to provide superior products and services to healthcare providers and organizations across the nation,” said Constellation President & CEO Ryan Crawford. “We’re bringing together a group of people, products, and services that will continue to deliver unwavering care for our collective customers.”

Sandner of Curi will remain as CEO of Curi Holdings, Inc. Crawford of Constellation will serve as CEO of the merged insurance business. The ten directors serving on each company’s board at closing will come together in equal representation to govern the merged organization.

The merger of the two companies is expected to close in the second half of 2023, upon regulatory and member approvals. Following the merger, the insurance company subsidiaries of Curi and Constellation will continue to operate under the consolidated mutual holding company, such that the policies held by their insureds will remain in force.
