SAN FRANCISCO--()--Health Evolution Partners (“HEP”), announced today that the Health Evolution Partners Growth Fund, along with Dan Kohl and Jack Draughon, launched Halcyon Home Health, a new company being formed to deliver the next generation of home health care solutions based upon clinical excellence and coordinated care delivery. Halcyon will focus on acquiring and building a network of home health agencies that deliver high quality, cost effective outcomes generated by clinically driven, information based care.

Dan Kohl will serve as Halcyon Home Health’s Chief Executive Officer. Dan has over 30 years of experience leading public and private health care services companies. Mr. Kohl is the former CEO of two home health companies, Pediatric Services of America and Housecall Medical Resources. Dan will be joined by Jack Draughon, an experienced health care investor who most recently led the U.S. health care investment practice of Arcapita Bank B.S.C.(c). Mr. Draughon, who will co-lead the effort and serve as Chief Development Officer brings significant experience in the home health industry, including leading Arcapita’s successful investment and subsequent sale of TLC Home Healthcare Services.

“As we look at the challenges in our health care system, it is clear that home care has a lot to offer. We envision the home as a prime setting for care using clinical excellence and information technology,” said HEP Chairman David Brailer. “We look forward to working with Dan and Jack to build a company that will redefine how home care is delivered.”

“The current environment presents a unique opportunity to build a best-in-class home health care platform,” Kohl said. “The regulatory and reimbursement environment clearly favors providers that emphasize care improvement and cost containment—elements central to our mission. These values are core to Health Evolution Partners’ investment philosophy and along with their deep industry knowledge and relationships make HEP the ideal partner in this endeavor.”

“We are excited to partner with a premier executive team,” said HEP Principal Jay Rose. “Dan and Jack bring exceptional operating and acquisition experience that we believe will be critical in building a transformative service model focused on not only high quality, episodic care but also ongoing chronic care management.”
