GREENWICH, Conn. & OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Harbour Point Capital (“HPC”), a private equity investment firm specializing in the healthcare services field, today announced completion of a new investment in Midwest Medical Transport (“MMT”), a premier provider of ambulance transportation services. HPC and healthcare industry veteran Kevin Ketzel, former president of Agiliti Health (NASDAQ: AGTI), partnered on the transaction.
Panorama Point Partners (“Panorama”) and its equity partners, Dixon Midland Company (“Dixon Midland”) and ORIX Private Equity Solutions (“ORIX”), prior investors in MMT, have sold their interests as part of the recapitalization. Details were not disclosed.
Founded in Columbus, Nebraska, MMT began providing ambulance services in 1987, focusing on inter-facility transportation (“IFT”) within health systems. The company was acquired in 2015 by Panorama, Dixon Midland, and ORIX, and has since established itself as a clear market leader in the industry, customizing its model to currently serve more than 200,000 patients annually for health systems in 10 states across the country. The new investment will allow MMT to accelerate growth in both existing and new geographic locations, continuing its commitment to superior quality, safety and customer service.
“Panorama, Dixon Midland, and ORIX did an excellent job guiding MMT’s growth from a founder-led company to the industry leader we are today,” said Jeff Shullaw, President & CEO of MMT. “We are looking forward to expanding our footprint nationally to create sustainable access to healthcare, as we gain financial, strategic and operational support from Harbour Point Capital and Kevin.”
“MMT’s service model is unique in the IFT space, delivering customized solutions to its health system partners with unparalleled transparency and accountability,” said Robert Juneja, Co-Founder and Partner of Harbour Point Capital. “We believe the Company’s compelling value proposition has positioned it for accelerated growth. We are excited to partner with Kevin, Jeff and the rest of MMT’s management team for this next phase of development.”
“I am looking forward to working with Jeff and his team to expand MMT’s best in class service to customers and patients across the country,” added Mr. Ketzel, who has joined MMT’s board.
“We are proud to have assisted MMT in its growth, becoming the national leader in inter-facility medical transportation,” said Stephen George, Founder and Managing Partner of Panorama. “I have no doubt the MMT management team will reach its new goal, and I wish the company great success.”
