PRESS RELEASE

SILVER SPRING, Md., July 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Mindoula, a leading population health management company focused on transforming behavioral healthcare in the U.S., today announces it has secured a strategic investment from Boston-based growth equity firm, Equality Asset Management.

Mindoula’s technology-enabled platform identifies, engages and serves patients with complex behavioral health, medical and social challenges across the complete continuum of care. The company specializes in populations with behavioral health challenges and comorbid medical conditions, specialty populations such as victims of interpersonal violence, as well as those who benefit from behavioral treatment in a primary care setting or within their communities.

“As we continue to execute on our mission to transform behavioral healthcare, we are excited to bring on a partner who shares our vision,” says Mindoula Founder and CEO Steve Sidel. “We are impressed by the deep investment experience, healthcare expertise, and collaborative approach of Tom Roberts, Ned Schwartz, and the entire Equality team, and we look forward to our growth together.”

Since its founding in 2013, Mindoula has rapidly grown its partnerships with health plans, health systems, primary care practices and hospitals, to improve population health, enhance patient care, and reduce the total cost of healthcare in pre-acute, post-acute and acute settings, as well as in transitions of care.

“Mindoula’s accelerating growth is a testament to the company’s mission-driven and passionate management team, its best-in-class technology platform and around-the-clock synchronous support model,” says Tom Roberts, Founder and CEO of Equality Asset Management. “We look forward to actively partnering with Mindoula to support its continued rapid growth and its mission to address behavioral health challenges for patients in significant need across the continuum of care.”

Ned Schwartz, Managing Director of Equality, adds: “Mindoula is solving systemic problems related to behavioral healthcare access, the lack of integration of behavioral health in the primary care setting, and the increasing scarcity of resources available to effectively address social determinants of health. Our partnership with Mindoula represents a highly thematic investment for Equality, and we are very excited to support its continued national expansion. Mindoula’s technology-oriented approach to improving behavioral health outcomes for complex patient populations is highly differentiated.”

Zeigler acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Mindoula for the transaction. Cooley LLP acted as legal advisor to Mindoula. Ropes and Gray LLP acted as legal advisor to Equality. Existing institutional investors, AXA Venture Partners and Morgan Noble Healthcare Partners, also participated. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
