Wondr Health, a digital behavior change company focused on weight management and preventing chronic disease, has acquired eMindful, a provider of mindfulness programs for everyday life and chronic conditions.

“Now, more than any other time in history, employers need a digitally-driven, comprehensive wellbeing solution to help employees stay healthy and resilient in both mind and body,” said Rob Butler, Chief Executive Officer of Wondr Health. “While there’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to benefits, adding eMindful to the Wondr Health family of brands builds a one-of-a-kind preventive care combination that serves as the foundation to drive better productivity, highest ROI, and meaningful engagement throughout an employer’s entire benefits platform. We are thrilled with this new team and the opportunity to continue to expand Wondr’s reach and further our mission of doing the most good for the most people.”

“The pandemic accelerated the need for innovation and credible outcomes in behavior change programs,” said Mary Pigatti, CEO of eMindful. “eMindful and Wondr Health are culturally aligned in how we value a client-centric approach to wellbeing with measurable ROI, and together, our broader depth of evidence-based programs enhance our ability to serve clients’ needs today and in the future.”
