Brentwood Capital Advisors (“BCA”) is pleased to announce that it served as the exclusive financial advisor to Psychiatric Medical Care (“PMC” or the “Company”) in its recently completed recapitalization by Consonance Capital Partners (“Consonance”).

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“PMC is a premier behavioral health management company and is well-positioned to meet the growing need for high-quality geriatric behavioral care, especially within rural communities,” noted Stephen McKenna, Managing Partner & Co-Founder of Consonance Capital Partners. “J.R. Greene, CEO of PMC, and his team have created a robust platform by establishing a sustainable model with differentiated, high quality clinical programming at its core. We look forward to working with PMC as it continues to build upon its considerable success to date.”
“I am proud of what our team at PMC has accomplished; since the beginning, PMC’s mission has been to improve the quality of life for older adults living in rural communities” explained J.R. Greene. “We are excited to partner with the Consonance team based on their extensive healthcare experience and their shared vision of improving the lives of PMC’s patients. Together, we will be able to broaden the depth and breadth of our services and to reach more people. BCA, our exclusive investment banking advisor, was instrumental during the entire process, helping us select the best partner for the long-term success of PMC.”

Nancy-Ann DeParle, Partner & Co-Founder of Consonance Capital Partners, commented, “Having been raised in a rural community, I understand firsthand the unmet need for behavioral healthcare services in these areas, especially among the geriatric population. Addressing these gaps in care has been a lifelong goal, and I am thrilled that we at Consonance will be able to assist J.R. and his team in expanding PMC’s footprint and helping more people in these underserved communities.”
“PMC’s growth in recent years and proven ability to serve rural hospitals with its best-in-class clinical model presented a highly attractive partnership opportunity for Consonance,” added L.A. Galyon, Managing Director at Brentwood Capital Advisors. “The behavioral health sector remains a key focus of BCA’s healthcare services practice, and the PMC transaction builds upon BCA’s leadership position in behavioral health investment banking, which now includes 14 transactions in this sector. We were pleased to serve as PMC’s exclusive financial advisor in this important transaction and enjoyed working with J.R. Greene and PMC’s CFO, Bobby Rouse Jr., CPA.”
