Dr. Randy Schilsky, the founder and CEO of RMS, will remain involved in business development for Med First under Sverica ownership. “I am excited to partner with an experienced healthcare investor like Sverica Capital.

Med First is a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and participates in the North Carolina Medical Society’s Rural ACO initiative. According to the American College of Physicians, a PCMH is a care delivery model that coordinates a patient’s medical treatment through their primary care physician to ensure they receive the necessary care when and where they need it. The objective is to have a centralized setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients and their personal physicians and, when appropriate, the patient’s family.

Gregg Osenkowski nf1“Med First is one of only a small number of primary care practices that are both Patient Centered Medical Home certified and offer the convenience of an urgent care model,” said Gregg Osenkowski, a Vice President at Sverica Capital. “This combination is particularly relevant for rural markets where there is a chronic shortage of quality primary care services.”

This transaction marks Sverica’s second investment made from its fourth fund, Sverica Capital Partners Fund IV LP, which closed in March 2016 at its hard cap of $275 million.
