Catherine Benavidez founded Injury Management Organization, Inc. (IMO) in 1991 while raising two young daughters, Rachael and Madeleine. IMO is a minority-owned and operated sole proprietor business headquartered in Plano that specializes in managed care services for occupational injuries.

 With more than three decades of experience, Catherine has grown the company and her team with clients ranging from municipalities and school districts to retail and higher education. Passion for quality medical care coupled with premier customer service, IMO serves clients such as large cities, school districts and high profile retail stores. These relationships and Catherine’s commitment to a high level of service grew IMO into the highly regarded managed care company it is today. With a strong reputation in the Lonestar State, the organization is now growing across the region and expanding into group health and liability.  

Serving public and private employers, nonsubscribers, insurance carriers and third-party administrators, the company has organically grown its services to include its Certified Health Care Network, coined the IMO Med-Select Network®, Utilization Review, Medical Bill Review, and Case Management. Taking quality and client satisfaction seriously, IMO’s focus is driven by provider relationships, employee engagement and measurable outcomes.
