RLH Equity Partners invests in The Chartis Group

Riordan, Lewis & Haden | Equity Partners (RLH) has invested in The Chartis Group, a strategy consulting firm that helps the senior executives and boards of directors of hospitals and Integrated Delivery Networks address their most important and pressing challenges. 

The company assists its clients with key strategic decisions on economic matters such as developing or participating in an accountable care organisation, acquisitions of physician groups, geographic expansion of the care delivery footprint, and achieving efficient care delivery processes at each site. 

Chartis’ roster of blue chip clients includes over 60 nationally renowned academic medical centres, nine of the top 10 children’s hospitals in the US, 81 per cent of US News honour roll hospitals, and 20 of the top 25 cancer centres nationwide.

RLH has partnered with Chartis’ management team, led by founding partners Ken Graboys, Ethan Arnold, and Chris Regan, to recapitalise the company and further accelerate its growth. 

J Christopher Lewis, managing director of RLH, says: "Chartis brings great expertise to help its provider clients make key decisions in the context of game-changing recent legislation and intensive industry regulation. Demand for the company’s experienced insights is growing rapidly as large healthcare systems address the increasing complexity and rapid pace of change in the US healthcare system. The company has the strong cohesive leadership, high organic growth rate, critical mass of revenue, outstanding reputation, and exciting market opportunity that make it an excellent fit with RLH’s investment focus."
