VSS Capital Partners, a private investment firm investing in the healthcare, business services, education and information industries, has completed a growth capital investment in Ambulatory Management Solutions, a turnkey provider of outpatient anesthesia, surgical and administrative services that enable physicians to provide safe in-office and ambulatory surgery center-based procedures.
“Our investment in AMS illustrates VSS’s approach to structuring transactions, typically preserving significant equity ownership for our management partners while ensuring low leverage,” said Jeffrey Stevenson, managing partner of VSS. “At the same time, this approach provides our portfolio companies with the needed financial flexibility to pursue growth
Victoria Durand, associate at VSS, adds, “We think AMS’ reputation and its full-service, integrated anesthesia and administrative services model provides a solid foundation for building a national office-based anesthesia platform that is safe, efficient and fulfills a critical need for physicians and patients, while significantly reducing the cost of surgical procedures.”
“VSS shares our vision for expanding AMS’ regional footprint in Northeast Illinois organically and through affiliations with complementary outpatient anesthesia practices,” said Scott Mayer, chief executive officer of Ambulatory Management Solutions. “We look forward to building upon AMS’ scalable platform with VSS to empower physicians’ delivery of value-based
healthcare while easing the administrative burdens associated with outpatient surgery.”
VSS has previously invested in growing healthcare services businesses, including Podiatry Growth Partners, which enables podiatrists to spend more time caring for patients and effectively manage their back-office functions; Endo1 Partners, a provider of comprehensive business and operational support services to endodontics practices; and BRC Healthcare, a provider of treatment services designed to meet the needs of growing population with substance use disorders.
