Colibri Healthcare, LLC and ADVANCE Healthcare Network combine to offer career destination for healthcare professionals

Purchase unites CE leader with best-in-class content to offer comprehensive resource for nursing and healthcare professionals to complete CE, increase clinical knowledge, find jobs, and more


Colibri Healthcare, LLC, a trusted provider of continuing education (CE) and supportive career resources for nursing and healthcare professionals, today announced it will combine with ADVANCE Healthcare Network, a leading publisher of news and information for healthcare professionals since 1985.

The deal combines Elite’s highly-rated CE offerings with ADVANCE’s best-in class industry content to bring nurses and the broader healthcare community a convenient resource to stay on top of CE requirements, keep up with clinical advancements and techniques, network with peers, diversify their knowledge, find jobs, and more.

The healthcare industry is expected to add roughly four million jobs over the next ten years. With this growing job market, more value is being placed on comprehensive resources that give nurses and healthcare professionals access to everything they need to advance their careers, so they can spend more time caring for patients and less time trying to find relevant information.

“Elite offers nurses and healthcare professionals across the country convenience and quality when it comes to completing CE requirements,” said Janet Blanner, general manager of Elite Healthcare. “Our expanding course library combined with the authoritative content that ADVANCE has provided for over 30 years will offer significant value to nurses and healthcare professionals everywhere.”

ADVANCE Healthcare Network has been providing news and information for healthcare professionals since 1985 in Nursing, Rehab (PT/OT/Speech), Respiratory Care, Laboratory Technology, Radiology, Health Information Management, and Health System Management. They are known for their high-quality print magazines and websites with authoritative editorial content supported by relevant advertising.

“The integration of ADVANCE Healthcare Network is the latest example of how we’re improving the career lifecycle support of our professional community,” said Mike Duran, CEO of Colibri Group, the parent company of Colibri Healthcare, LLC. “Professionals today have limited time — no matter their industry — and we’re committed to bringing innovative solutions, products and services designed to help them achieve more in their careers and lives.”

The combined company’s headquarters will remain at Colibri Healthcare, LLC in St. Louis, Missouri.
