Waud Capital Partners, a growth-oriented middle-market private equity firm, has formed an executive partnership with Steve Jakubcanin to pursue a platform investment in the home care and post-acute services market.

Jakubcanin is a healthcare executive with over 20 years of healthcare operating experience across multiple sectors including home care, acute post-acute and behavioral healthcare services. As a former clinician and experienced executive, he brings a deep understanding of multi-site operations, patient care and coordination across the care process. Waud Capital anticipates investing over $100 million of equity capital to support the initiative.

“Both the volume and scope of healthcare services being provided in a patient’s place of residence are growing rapidly,” comments Kyle Lattner, principal of Waud Capital. “In partnership with Steve, we believe there is an opportunity to build a market-leading organization focused on delivering high-quality care, in the most convenient setting for patients, while also lowering the total cost of care for payors.”
