Dallas-based Cooper Aerobics has integrated Meritage Healthcare Strategies into its Cooper Wellness Strategies (CWS) division.
The website for Meritage says it has offices in Irving as well as St. Louis, and that it assists “hospitals, healthcare organizations, medical fitness centers, communities and entrepreneurs with business planning, development and marketing efforts.” Combining the two will allow CWS to operate with a complete suite of wellness services, Cooper Aerobics says.
David Evans, formerly of Meritage, will become vice president of CWS under Dallas-based Cooper Aerobics. Evans was principal at Meritage for 16 years and served as managing director of the Baylor Tom Landry health and Wellness Center for 12 years prior to that.
“Meritage’s focus on providing services within the medical fitness industry to achieve positive outcomes and performance will be a tremendous asset to Cooper Wellness Strategies,” says Cooper Aerobics CEO Tyler Cooper, in a statement.
