Bailey Southwell 2019 Year in Review

January 21st, 2020 | BSC News Featured

As we kick off the new year, we are thankful for the many great partnerships and connections we have made in 2019. We have compiled some of the top highlights, a review of our more than ten closed transactions, and a look into some of the most notable BSC internal achievements and thought leadership experiences throughout the past year.

With the goal of continuously identifying the optimal outcome for our clients, we worked extremely hard to achieve their transaction objectives.

2019 Highlights
    • Closed six additional transactions in the payer services sector, totaling more than 20 transactions over the past five years. The 2019 transactions included an industry-leading business process automation firm, an international deal, and two transactions representing Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City
Closed Transactions
We closed out the year advising on more than ten transactions throughout subsectors within healthcare and technology.
Growth, Talent, and Thought Leadership
We were lucky to have Richard Jacques join BSC at the beginning of the year, providing more depth to our experienced team serving the physician practice space that is led by Stephen Scott and Russell Bryan.

Prior to joining BSC, Richard was the Vice President of Development at Covenant Surgical Partners, a physician services company backed by KKR that operates a variety of healthcare facilities including ambulatory surgery centers, anesthesia companies, and physician practices, where he was responsible for driving its acquisition strategy.

And, we rounded out the year celebrating four well-deserved promotions.

We also participated in several conference panel discussions as well as contributed to industry publications, including the Leaders Speak series in WorkCompWire.

Our Managing Director, Russell Bryan, participated in a number of panel discussions including one at the 2019 Physician Practice Management & ASC Symposium and one at the Nashville Health Care Council Discussion. Russell will be speaking at multiple conferences again in 2020.

Our Managing Director and co-founder, Jack Bailey, contributed to WorkCompWire with a two-part series providing insight into valuation drivers over and above financial metrics for businesses in the workers’ comp sector. If you missed it, catch up on part one and part two here.

BSC Capital Partners
In late 2018, we launched BSC Capital Partners, a co-investment private equity fund making minority investments in growth and late-stage healthcare and tech-enabled services companies. BSCCP supports strong management teams that have built scalable platforms by providing flexible capital and strategic insights to accelerate growth.

In 2019, BSCCP completed strategic investments in Data Dimensions, Shearwater Health, ChartSpan, and Tellus.
