Clearview Capital buys Community Medical Service Holdings

Clearview Capital has acquired Scottsdale, Arizona-based Community Medical Services Holdings, a provider of medication-assisted treatment programs for patients suffering from substance use disorders. No financial terms were disclosed.


Stamford, CT, April 6, 2018 — Clearview Capital Fund III, LP (“Fund III”) announced today the acquisition, in partnership with management, of Community Medical Services Holdings, LLC (“CMS” or the “Company”). The transaction closed on March 30, 2018.

Headquartered in Scottsdale, AZ, CMS is a rapidly growing provider of medication-assisted treatment (“MAT”) programs for patients suffering from substance use disorders. Operating across four states, the Company provides services to more than 4,000 individuals from 14 comprehensive treatment centers, including the nation’s first 24-hour Opioid Treatment Program (“OTP”). Fund III partnered with management to acquire the business from its inactive majority owners, who did not maintain an ongoing stake in the Company. Nick Stavros, the Company’s CEO, will continue to lead the management team and maintain ownership in the Company.

“Our team is thrilled to partner with Clearview Capital to further accelerate our growth trajectory,” said Mr. Stavros. “Clearview has established a successful track record in healthcare services, while maintaining a strict commitment to providing first-class patient care, which perfectly aligns with our company’s mission and core values. We look forward to investing in our infrastructure, technology, people and communities to continue our goal of expanding treatment access to as many individuals and families as possible.”

“CMS has distinguished itself as a clear leader in the MAT field, and Nick and the CMS team
have done a tremendous job laying the groundwork over the last several years to support continued growth,” said Matt Blevins, Principal of Clearview Capital. “The opioid epidemic continues to ravage communities across the nation and our partnership with the CMS team will seek to be part of the solution through the opening of additional programs and expansion of services across the country. “

“We are excited to be working with the CMS team,” added Calvin Neider, Managing Partner and co-Founder of Clearview Capital. “The idea that substance use disorders should be treated like any other chronic condition is finally gaining acceptance in the medical community, while
evidence continues to demonstrate the efficacy of using MAT to combat opioid dependency.

We will look to grow CMS through the opening of new clinics, as well as through complementary add-on acquisitions.”

CMS is the tenth platform investment in Clearview Capital Fund III, LP, a $325 million committed fund raised in 2013. Clearview Capital sourced the transaction from Quarton International, who advised the seller.
