West Palm Beach, FL, February 2017 – Comvest Partners (“Comvest”) today announced the completion of its acquisition of Interamerican Medical Center Group (“IMC”), a Florida-based managed services organization that provides primary care and specialty services to Medicare, Medicaid and commercial members.
