Correct Care Solutions and Correctional Medical Group Companies Join Forces to Deliver Best-in-Class Healthcare
SAN FRANCISCO – October 1, 2018 – H.I.G. Capital, ("H.I.G."), a leading global private equity investment firm with over $27 billion of equity capital under management, is pleased to announce that one of its affiliates has acquired Correct Care Solutions (“CCS”) and combined CCS with H.I.G.’s existing portfolio company, Correctional Medical Group Companies (“CMGC”), in partnership with management.
The combined company will generate approximately $1.5 billion in annual revenues and be headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee (while maintaining a strong presence in San Diego, California where CMGC is based). CCS-CMGC will be the leading provider of localized, high-quality, compassionate healthcare to patients in challenging correctional and behavioral clinical environments, and the combined company’s 15,000 employees will serve nearly 300,000 patients daily in more than 550 health clinics and hospitals across nearly 40 states.
“CCS and CMGC are both focused on putting patients first, bringing best practices to the challenging clinical environments in which we work, and connecting compassionate, well-trained clinicians to the communities and patients that need them most,” said Jorge Dominicis, CEO of CCS-CMGC. “This combination is a natural evolution of both our businesses and will create a stronger, more dynamic business positioned for future growth and with more holistic healthcare options for our patients.”
“Over the years, as the country’s health care system has changed, we have seen more and more individuals with acute mental health diagnoses and substance use disorders being treated by our doctors, nurses and clinicians in correctional settings,” said Kip Hallman, President of CCS-CMGC and former CEO of CMGC since 2013. “Bringing together our experts and best practices in behavioral and mental healthcare, in particular, will help us to continually evolve our services to meet the changing needs of our patient population and to work with communities to serve their most vulnerable residents, and address their most pressing concerns.”
Rob Wolfson, a Managing Director at H.I.G. Capital added, “We are proud of what we have accomplished since partnering with CMGC in 2012, and are very excited to bring these two leading companies together. We believe we have combined the industry’s two best management teams, who both bring a shared passion for delivering excellent clinical care to patients in complex care settings.”
CCS-CMGC represents H.I.G.’s 23rd control investment in healthcare since 2008 and becomes its 14th current platform in the sector.
