Serent Capital Announces Sale of Professional Health Care Network (PHCN)

AUSTIN, Texas & SAN FRANCISCO--()--Serent Capital announced the sale of its portfolio company, Professional Health Care Network (PHCN) to The Vistria Group. PHCN is a home health care management services company that partners with health plans and providers to increase the access and value of home-based clinical care.

The Phoenix-based company is a leading provider of home health management solutions and care coordination throughout the western U.S. Working in collaboration with major health plans and providers, PHCN has demonstrated a proven track record of providing greater access to home health care in the recovery stages, effectively reducing emergent and long-term institutionalization, and above all, improving the satisfaction and health outcomes of PHCN’s over 950,000 supported lives.

Since Serent’s investment in May 2019, PHCN:

- Built out its entire executive team, including adding Brian Sassi as Chief Executive Officer, in addition to a Chief Growth Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Technology Officer and VP Finance

- Materially enhanced its technology stack, migrating back and front office to the cloud

- Expanded its service offering, adding coverage of Medicare Advantage PPO members to its legacy Medicare Advantage HMO and managed Medicaid offerings

- Grew from its home state of Arizona to enter Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada

- Increased its lives covered from 350K to 950K

“PHCN is a fine case study of how Serent’s partnership can help companies to enhance their foundation and thereby drive exceptional growth,” states David Kennedy, Partner Emeritus at Serent Capital. “The impact that Brian and the entire PHCN team have achieved has been truly remarkable. We look forward to seeing their continued success in their next chapter.”

“I have known and admired the Serent team for some time. It was a pleasure to work with them at PHCN, where their partnership was critical in building our strategy and growing our team,” says Brian Sassi, CEO of Professional Health Care Network. “Our ability to triple the lives we serve in such a short time was a testament to the strength of the partnership here between executive team and investor.”
