Injury Management Organization

Founded in 1991, Injury Management Organization, Inc. (IMO) is a managed care company serving public and private employers, nonsubscribers, insurance carriers and third party administrators. Taking quality and client satisfaction seriously, our focus is driven by provider relationships, employee engagement and measurable outcomes.

We are a trusted managed care partner for both private and public enterprise with vast experience in quality case management and positive injured employee outcomes. For over three decades our goal has been to provide industry leading customer service to our industry partners and their injured employees — a goal that has allowed IMO to grow from Texas into multiple other states including Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Colorado, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arizona, and New Mexico.

Celebrating 30 Years in Business

In 2021 IMO marked its 30th year in business. For founder and CEO Catherine Benavidez, the IMO journey defines much of her life story.

Catherine faced many challenges, both in business and personally, that helped shape IMO into the successful business it is today. In the early years, when Hispanic women were expected to stay at home and care for their families, Catherine, a single mother at the time, worked tirelessly to prove herself.

Read more about the IMO journey, the many obstacles overcome and the mentors and colleagues that made it all possible.
