Eric Keen, General Partner at Council Capital, commented, “Home-based primary care is an investment theme we have been investigating for more than a year. Physician Housecalls offers an innovative and effective service that greatly improves the patient’s quality of care and satisfaction, reduces costs to the healthcare system, and creates a more meaningful practice experience for providers. These attributes align strongly with our strategy of investing on the “right side of change in healthcare” – where we are able to grow and generate returns by investing into companies that improve the patient experience while also reducing cost.” Keen continued, “We are excited to be partnering with the management team at Physician Housecalls and look forward to supporting them in their current mission while also working to further develop and enhance the organization to drive further growth.”
