New York, NY, August 10, 2016 – BBH Capital Partners (“BBHCP”) announced today that it has recapitalized Haven Behavioral Healthcare, Inc. (“Haven” or the “Company”) in partnership with Haven CEO Michael Lindley and other key members of the Company’s senior management team. The recapitalization included growth capital for the pursuit of organic and inorganic growth opportunities.
Haven, headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, is a leading provider of specialized inpatient psychiatric stabilization and treatment services to a growing population of older adults with acute psychiatric issues, including depression, anxiety, psychosis or other severe behavioral problems. The Company operates six acute psychiatric facilities in five states, including geriatric and adult psychiatric units and partial hospitalization programs. Haven is well-positioned to benefit from an increased focus on behavioral health treatment as well as the rapidly growing geriatric population in the U.S.
Bradley M. Langer, Managing Director at Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. and Co-Manager of BBHCP, commented, “We are excited to have the opportunity to invest again in the behavioral health sector. We have previously invested in the sector and have been seeking a new platform for the past few years. The opportunity to partner with Michael Lindley and his senior management team was very attractive to us, as we have known Michael and his key executives for more than 10 years and greatly respect their deep industry experience and the significant continuity of a team that has operated healthcare businesses together for nearly 20 years. There is a meaningful supply-demand imbalance between the population served by Haven and the available treatment options.”
On the new partnership, Mr. Lindley commented, “We are excited to partner with BBHCP to further support Haven’s organic and inorganic growth initiatives. Our team believes there is a significant opportunity to capitalize on the demand in our core addressable market of older adults, and we look forward to working closely with BBHCP to continue to build a specialized behavioral healthcare company focused on clinical and operational excellence. BBHCP is an experienced healthcare industry investor and shares our strategic vision for Haven.”
Brentwood Capital Advisors served as the exclusive financial advisor to Haven.
