CHICAGO, IL (August 27, 2018) – RiverGlade Capital (“RiverGlade”), is pleased to announce that it has formed U.S. Oral Surgery Management, LLC (“USOSM” or the “Company”), a management services company to the oral surgery sector headquartered outside of Dallas, TX. Utilizing a physician-partnership model, USOSM is the largest network of oral surgery practices in the country. The initial USOSM platform was formed in November 2017 by RiverGlade and the Thurston Group through the combination of two oral surgery groups in Austin and Dallas.
Since inception, the Company has partnered with three additional oral surgery groups in Dallas, San Antonio, and Waco, TX. All of the practices provide a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures. With the initial platform investment and subsequent investments made to date, the Company is partnered with oral surgeons across 27 clinic locations. “By partnering with founders and practices with the highest clinical reputations and strong referral bases, USOSM has been able to scale quickly,” said Danny Rosenberg, Managing Partner at RiverGlade Capital.
A key priority in forming USOSM was installing an experienced, top-tier senior leadership team. The Company is led by Rick Hall, President and Chief Executive Officer, who has significant experience partnering with physicians and driving growth through acquisitions and operational improvements. A proven leader with extensive management experience, Mr. Hall provides visionary leadership and strategic execution. He has a deep background in physician services businesses, having previously served as President of Alliance Oncology and Senior Vice President of Business Development, Marketing, and Physician Recruitment at US Oncology. In addition to Mr. Hall, a robust executive team has been put in place with the hiring of a Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Vice President of Human Resources, Vice President of Marketing and two Vice Presidents of Mergers and Acquisitions. “We are excited to utilize our experience in scaling leading healthcare service companies to support the Company’s growth initiatives,” said Garrick Rice, Managing Partner at RiverGlade Capital.
