Latticework Capital Management has made an undisclosed investment in Rural Partners in Medicine, a provider of healthcare to rural communities. Madison Street Capital advised RPM on the transaction.
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. and CHICAGO, Aug. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Madison Street Capital, an international investment banking firm, served as exclusive advisor to Rural Partners in Medicine (“RPM”) on its partnership and investment from Latticework Capital Management (“LCM”). RPM brings dedicated physicians and surgeons directly to patients in the hospitals serving their rural communities. The transaction was announced by Charles Botchway, CEO of Madison Street Capital and led by Senior Managing Director Barry Petersen. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Bryan Scheer, MD, Co-Founder and CEO of RPM, stated that “we are excited about our partnership with the Latticework team, because we believe they have the skillset and resources to help us expand our capabilities to serve more rural communities in need of specialty services. We founded RPM after practicing in rural markets for several years and recognized that specialty surgery was not occurring in rural communities proportionate to the population leading to fragmented care, unfavorable outcomes and lower patient satisfaction.”
Barry Petersen noted “RPM has developed a unique value proposition which allows rural hospitals to profitably grow via RPM’s surgical services which utilize existing infrastructure in these facilities. Latticework’s expertise in aggressively scaling promising companies in the healthcare industry is a perfect match.”
The principals of LCM have invested in healthcare companies across the healthcare ecosystem and have been integral in helping other healthcare services companies achieve their strategic goals. Steve Neumann, Managing Partner of LCM, said that “the investment in RPM is consistent with our investment thesis of partnering with leading healthcare companies in fragmented and underserved markets. We look forward to the partnership with Dr. Scheer and his team as we work to expand RPM’s services to more communities in need of healthcare services.”
