in Portfolio News

Deal expands Centauri’s national footprint in hospital revenue cycle optimization

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Aug. 19, 2020) – Centauri Health Solutions (“Centauri” or the “Company”), an innovative healthcare technology and services company, announced today that it has acquired all key assets of HCFS, Inc. (“HCFS”), a Texas-based provider of self-pay management solutions. HCFS enables Centauri to further extend its market leadership in hospital revenue cycle optimization services.

Since 1986, HCFS has specialized in revenue cycle solutions for hospitals and health systems, using advanced technology and an emphasis on patient advocacy to increase process efficiencies and maximize revenue for clients.

“In this time of industry challenge and uncertainty, I’m confident this union with one of nation’s growing leaders in hospital revenue management solutions will enable HCFS clients to receive the level of excellent, compassionate service they are accustomed to, while also providing them with access to a new portfolio of industry leading products and services,” said Julie Faling, HCFS Chief Executive Officer.

This deal comes on the heels of the recent acquisition of AppRev, a healthcare revenue cycle analytics company, and the December 2019 acquisition of IHMS, a hospital revenue cycle management services provider. As with those acquisitions, the additional resources of HCFS further extend Centauri’s revenue cycle management footprint and leadership.

“This acquisition expands our presence in the midwestern and western states, and adds another group of long-tenured, experienced associates to Centauri. The combination will allow Centauri to provide enhanced revenue cycle services to the clients of both companies. My goal in launching and strategically growing Centauri is always to provide what’s missing in the marketplace. This deal strengthens the solutions and services available to clients and patients,” said Centauri CEO and co-founder Adam Miller.

As of today, HCFS will be known as Centauri Health Solutions. The transaction was supported by Centauri’s investors, Abry Partners, Silversmith Capital Partners and SV Health Investors. Weiss Brown LLP acted as legal counsel to Centauri and Shields Legal Group acted as legal counsel to HCFS.
