Advantia Health acquired D.C.-based Reiter, Hill, Johnson & Nevin.

Arlington, Virginia-based healthcare provider Advantia Health has acquired downtown D.C.-based Reiter, Hill, Johnson & Nevin (RHJN), a comprehensive obstetrics and gynecology practice that’s over 40 years old, for an undisclosed amount.

Founded in 2014, Advantia exclusively focuses on women and maternal health with a tech component allowing its patients to easily access and communicate with their doctors. This acquisition expands Advantia with 20 providers and three clinical locations in D.C.; Chevy Chase, Maryland; and Falls Church, Virginia. This deal closed prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and expands Advantia to the District with its first practice here.


“Advantia’s leadership and collaboration in the face of COVID-19 has been tremendous,” said RHJN Partner Dr. Heather L. Johnson in a statement, “from helping us secure PPE, to providing real-time updates on regulations and quickly helping us expand telehealth. I can’t imagine weathering this pandemic without their support.”

RHJN doctors will continue to perform surgeries and deliveries at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Northwest DC and the company’s clients have already gained access to Advantia’s offerings, including telemedicine appointments.

This acquisition comes after Advantia secured a $45 million investment from BlueMountain Capital Management and expanding its telemedicine offerings earlier this year. The healthcare provider is also working on opening a women’s health practice Liv by Advantia Health in the U Street NW area in 2021.
