NEW YORK, November 2, 2023-- York Capital Management’s private equity group (“York Private Equity” or “York”) today announced it has made a strategic growth investment in Comprehensive Rehab Consultants (“CRC” or the “Company”), one of the largest physiatry, psychiatry, and care transition groups in the United States. CRC’s Co-Founders Dr. Omar Osman and Rehan Azhar will remain owners of the business and continue to lead the Company as it executes its mission of providing patients with world-class care and driving innovation in effective care delivery.
Founded in 2020, CRC provides Physiatry (the medical specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation), chronic care management, and behavioral health services to skilled nursing facilities nationwide to enhance clinical care and improve patient outcomes. CRC’s proven ability to address the needs of patients has helped it grow steadily and establish a reputation as a leading, tech and data focused, high-quality clinical partner to post-acute facilities across the United States. CRC currently has over 250 clinicians servicing facilities across 32 states.
“We chose York as our partner given their long-term, collaborative approach and proven experience supporting businesses in the post-acute healthcare industry. This partnership will allow CRC to broaden our service offerings and provide better care to our core patient population,” said Dr. Omar Osman, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CRC. “We strive to bring comprehensive medical care to geriatric patients at skilled nursing facilities across the country, and today, we are excited to be one step closer to achieving our mission.”
“Through this collaboration with York, we are confident we will be able to reach more patients, expand the services we provide them, and improve the quality of care they receive. We remain steadfast in our focus of delivering the superior patient experience and clinical outcomes that have quickly established CRC as a leader in the post-acute industry,” said Rehan Azhar, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of CRC.
“CRC has done an extraordinary job of establishing itself as one of the premier clinical providers serving the post-acute sector since Omar and Rehan founded the business three years ago,” said Seth Pearson, Managing Director at York Private Equity. “Our investment aligns with York’s strategy of backing founders, management teams, and their businesses in the healthcare services sector to create opportunities for superior clinical outcomes, accelerate existing organic growth plans, enter new service lines, and expand into new geographies. We fully support CRC’s ultimate goal of helping more patients and delivering the care they need to get them home healthier and more functional.”
CRC is the eighth platform investment completed since inception by York Special Opportunities Fund III, L.P., which includes 14 add-on acquisitions.
