Scale Finance Advises on Sale of Eastern NC Medical Group to Family Care Partners

Family Care Partners (FCP), headquartered in Fort Mill, SC, has acquired a majority interest in Eastern North Carolina Medical Group, a primary care practice based in Rocky Mount, NC.  FCP was formed in 2015 by Varsity Healthcare Partners (VHP) in connection with its recapitalization of Colonial Family Practice, one of the largest providers of primary care and ancillary patient diagnostic services in South Carolina.  FCP was established as a platform holding company to facilitate the consolidation of clinically differentiated primary care practices in the Southeast and to centralize non-clinical management functions, in order to maximize provider productivity.

Scale Finance Partner, Tom Livingston, has provided financial consulting and transaction advisory services to FCP since shortly after its formation and provided advisory support for this transaction.  Tom previously provided CFO support to Colonial, and he and SF Managing Director, Dave Gilroy, advised and assisted Colonial with the recapitalization by VHP in 2015.
