Skip to the end of the Expertise Menu

Provident Healthcare Partners (“Provident”), a leading healthcare investment banking firm, announced it has advised Delaware Center for Digestive Care (“DCDC”) in its partnership with US Digestive Health (“USDH”), backed by Amulet Capital. This transaction represents USDH’s first partnership outside of Pennsylvania. DCDC will bring an additional three locations, two ambulatory surgery centers, over 35 providers, and more than 140 employees.

Provident’s deal team was led by Managing Directors Eric Major and Kevin Palamara. Maynard Cooper & Gale served as legal counsel to DCDC. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Provident was outstanding for our group and guided us through the intricacies of a large-scale acquisition. From the start, they expanded our fund of knowledge and delivered on growing our value. They were always available and patient in the process. They were invested in us. We chose the right partner,” noted Dr. Mark Corso, Dr. Gaurav Jain, and Dr. Jared Hossack, Physician leaders of DCDC.

“As the largest independent GI practice in Delaware, DCDC is a powerful addition to USDH, the leading GI practice in the Northeast,” stated Major.

“We are thrilled for our friends at DCDC.  They had several attractive opportunities before them, but ultimately determined that joining forces with USDH and their physician colleagues in the Pennsylvania market was best for their practice.  We wish both groups nothing but success in the future,” commented Palamara.
