During this transformative time in the delivery of health care services in America, health care M&A is playing a critical role. This transaction highlights what Polsinelli has labeled “high-value” health care M&A that illustrates this combination of transformational reform-driven consolidation and health care business model change, and the continued influential role of private equity investment in the health care sector.
At the same time, urgent care centers have seen rapid growth due to the health care consumer’s desire for accessible and affordable primary care, combined with the development of accountable care organizations. Multi-location urgent care center companies located in metropolitan areas are highly attractive to private equity investors who are building operational scale nationally.
After completing the PrimaCare Medical Centers transaction, Polsinelli became engaged in two additional urgent care center deals enabling us to leverage this experience on behalf of our clients in this highly active M&A niche.
Acted for clients in all aspects of the due diligence, structuring, negotiation, documentation, transactional regulatory, closing and post-closing phases of the transaction process. Polsinelli team:
- Identified the favored exit transaction alternative meeting our clients’ business goal
- Worked collaboratively with clients’ executive team and PrimaCare Medical Centers’ financial advisor to plan and execute a transaction that addressed the complexity of the structural and operational requirements of a highly regulated health care services business while maximizing the founders’ return on investment and planning for the next phases of their careers.
Polsinelli leveraged extensive experience and relationships in private equity sponsored health care services mergers and acquisitions. This enabled us to manage the legal and regulatory aspects of the transaction execution process and achieve a successful and on schedule closing.
