The titles are part of Ascend's Healthcare Group, which now has five titles remaining in its portfolio. Some staffers affiliated with the magazines will be let go, and the media company will try and reassign others, Ascend said. The Dental Group is also on the block.
The Dental Group's Dental Product Shopper was sold this week for an undisclosed sum to the magazine's publisher Dave Branch, leaving three titles left.
Cam Bishop, president-CEO of Ascend, could not be reached for comment.
