Anderson Heart, PC (Anderson Heart or AH), an independent cardiology and vascular surgery practice headquartered in Anderson, South Carolina, has partnered with Azura Vascular Care and National Cardiovascular Partners, LP, together wholly owned by Fresenius Medical Care North America, to form a newly created joint venture that completes an equity recapitalization and focuses on a growth strategy of physician recruitment and providing high-quality medical care to patients throughout South Carolina, at the advice of The Capital Corporation
The Capital Corporation, a boutique investment bank headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina, offering particular expertise in the health services sector, served as the exclusive investment banking advisor to Anderson Heart on the transaction.
Anderson Heart was formed in 2006 as an independent cardiology medical practice by founder and current Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Brent McLaurin. Since formation, AH added three additional physicians including one cardiologist and two vascular surgeons. In 2017, AH designed and constructed a wholly-owned, freestanding, independent clinic from which its four physicians conduct their practice of medicine.
Anderson Heart provides the highest-quality medical services to its patients from its owned clinic and local hospitals as necessary. Further, AH does so at lower overall cost to patients and third-party reimbursors such as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) and numerous independent health insurance companies. CMS is part of the Department of Health and Human Services and oversees the U.S. government’s Medicare and Medicaid programs.
