American Physician Partners Completes Acquisition Financing

Brentwood Capital Advisors is pleased to announce that it served as the exclusive financial advisor to American Physician Partners, LLC (“APP” or the “Company”) in its raise of $24 million in acquisition and growth financing from Goldman Sachs Specialty Lending Group.

Headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee, American Physician Partners is a leading provider of comprehensive management and staffing services for emergency department and hospitalist programs throughout the Southeast. The Company was formed through the acquisitions of two highly successful companies, Align MD and Elite Emergency Services, in conjunction with an executive team that possesses extensive hospital management experience. American Physician Partners currently serves 23 hospitals in six states, providing clinical staffing, administrative services and operational tools as well as ongoing training and leadership development – all designed to transform the patient-care experience and foster a culture of excellence.

“Our commitment to providing high-quality hospitalist and emergency medicine physicians allows American Physician Partners to successfully address the management of this important area for hospitals,” said John Rutledge, CEO and Founder of American Physician Partners. “Brentwood Capital Advisors, our investment banker in this transaction, played a critically important role in the formation of the Company by successfully obtaining acquisition financing along with the growth capital needed to execute our business plan while maximizing our physician partners and management’s ownership.”

“We were pleased to help John and his team at APP close on this transaction with Align and Elite,” stated L.A. Galyon of Brentwood Capital Advisors LLC. “Given the focus on quality service and management’s deep relationships in the hospital industry, APP has an extremely bright future.”
