NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rapidly growing SurgNet Health Partners, Inc. (SurgNet) is a new Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) development and management company based out of Nashville, Tenn. Primary investment partners were strategically engaged to accelerate growth and add holistic value to the company. Fulcrum Equity Partners and Leavitt Equity Partners led investments, with participation from Harpeth Capital. SurgNet is poised to make waves in the industry after announcing its first two acquisitions within 45 days of funding.
“I’ve spent 20 years of my career in ASC development, and I’m thrilled to bring my experience back to my hometown to transform the ASC operations and management sector alongside our team and partners,” said Chase Neal, Co-Founder and CEO of SurgNet.
Co-founders, Chase Neal and John D. Brock, President and COO, have brought together a powerful leadership team, balancing decades of industry expertise with a sense of service that will impress physician partners looking for a more intimate relationship.
“There will be a clear distinction in ASC facilities that have and have not worked with SurgNet,” said Chad Hooker, Principal, Fulcrum Equity Partners. “Chase and John enter facilities with a different intent than their competitors. Their desire to make notable change in physician and patients' lives is evident.”
The investor relationships and funding are turning the SurgNet founders’ multi-year vision into reality, uniting the right team at the right time to fuel growth and provide high-quality care to patients and communities.
“We fully support the mission of SurgNet that John and Chase are building, to enhance access to high quality surgical care in critical communities and markets. This is only the beginning for our partnership, and I am eager to see what the future holds as we continue our growth trajectory,” said Andrew Clark, Managing Partner, Leavitt Equity Partners.
SurgNet’s philosophy is to view facilities holistically, focusing on the entire experience from patients to staff to physician partners. With patient care and physician experience at the core, the growth of SurgNet will lead to expanded services and higher quality care at each facility.
“What sets Chase, John and the SurgNet team apart is their adaptability – they meet physicians where they are, lighten the business load and free physicians to focus on what matters most – serving their patients,” said Chuck Byrge, President and CEO, Harpeth Capital. “Their flexible model fosters facility success in both business and clinical excellence.”
SurgNet’s momentum in the outpatient surgery market, alongside their equity partners, is anticipated to aggressively scale through acquisition, De Novo, and center management strategies.
