NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Edgemont Partners (“Edgemont”), a leading middle-market healthcare investment bank, announced that it served as exclusive financial advisor to Health Essentials, LLC d/b/a Remita Health (“Remita Health” or the “Company”), a portfolio company of SV Health Investors, Petra Capital Partners and Bessemer Ventures, in its sale to Bristol Hospice, a portfolio company of Webster Equity Partners (“Webster”) since November 2017. The transaction closed on September 4, 2020. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The Edgemont deal team was led by Eugene Goldenberg, Managing Director, and Brandon Breslow, Vice President. The sale of Remita Health is Edgemont’s first hospice transaction since Eugene Goldenberg joined earlier this year to lead its investment banking franchise in post-acute services, distribution and staffing. Remita Health is also Edgemont’s third transaction with a Webster portfolio company in the last ten months, following the affiliation of Long Island Vitreoretinal Consultants (VRC) with Retina Consultants of America in January 2020 and CenExel Clinical Research’s acquisition of Research Centers of America in November 2019.
Over the last four years, other marquee post-acute care transactions closed by Eugene Goldenberg include the: (i) sale of Alacare Home Health & Hospice to Encompass Health (NYSE: EHC), (ii) sale of Optimal Health Services to Bristol Hospice, (iii) sale of Jordan Health Services to Blue Wolf Capital Partners and Kelso & Co., (iv) sale of St. Croix Hospice to The Vistria Group, (v) sale of All Metro Health Care to One Equity Partners, and (vi) sale of New Century Hospice to Curo Health Services.
Headquartered in Irvine, California, Remita Health is a leading regional hospice provider with six locations serving patients across Arizona, California and Nevada. Acquiring Remita Health further solidifies Bristol Hospice as the leading hospice provider in the state of California (the largest hospice market in the U.S.) by adding four service locations in Orange County, Northern Los Angeles, Central Los Angeles, and Inland Empire, and strategically expands the company’s geographic presence to two new states Nevada (Las Vegas) and Arizona (Tucson).
