NEW YORK and SALINAS, C.A., November 10, 2015 — Edgemont Capital Partners, LP, a leading independent investment banking firm providing M&A advisory services to healthcare companies, today announced that it acted as exclusive financial advisor to WorkWell Medical Group, LLC (“WorkWell”) in its investment and recapitalization by Salt Creek Capital. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
WorkWell Medical Group (www.workwellmedical.com), founded in 2003 by Dr. Sheilaja Mittal and Vikram Mittal, and headquartered in Salinas, California, offers patients and employers an in-house network of specialists, a multidisciplinary rehabilitation facility and a state-of-the-art mobile medical clinic, all providing a complete suite of healthcare services to improve healing time for employees, enabling them to return to work more quickly. The company owns and manages five medical clinics providing occupational medicine, workers compensation care and case management, as well as urgent care services throughout the central coast of California. The transaction closed on October 22, 2015. Luke J. Mitchell, managing director, and leader of the firm’s efforts with office-based physician services groups, led the Edgemont engagement team, along with associate Vitaliy Marchenko.
The recapitalization of WorkWell is Edgemont’s seventh closed transaction on behalf of physician groups, clinics, and practice management companies.
“Through twelve years of dedication and tireless devotion to quality clinical care and patient satisfaction, WorkWell has earned its reputation throughout California and the Western U.S. as being the go-to provider of walk-in medical services for patients and employers in central California,” said Mr. Mitchell. “Workwell was seeking a financial partner to provide the experience, capital, and management expertise to support the company’s tremendous growth, including its plans to expand to other parts of California. Out of a comprehensive and highly competitive marketing process, Edgemont identified Salt Creek as an ideal partner for Workwell.”
“After interviewing several firms we chose to work with Edgemont based on their long track record of working on behalf of medical practices and healthcare entrepreneurs, and their commitment to helping us achieve our personal and professional goals,” said Dr. and Mr. Mittal, founders of WorkWell. “From the beginning of the engagement, Luke and the Edgemont team demonstrated a strong understanding of our business, and were able to effectively communicate our vision and strategy to the universe of potential partners. The Edgemont team provided exceptional advice and brought us a range of highly attractive, and actionable, strategic options that resulted in a great outcome for us, WorkWell, our employees, and our customers.”
