Hawthorn Partnerts Home



Hawthorn Health Partners and its affiliates offer a range of investment banking advisory and development services to both larger public and smaller private healthcare service companies.

For each of our clients, Hawthorn and its affiliated companies work to tailor the financing to meet the unique requirements of each healthcare provider.

In Private Placements, our services include: placement of debt (senior, subordinated and project debt) and equity; creating syndications involving corporate securities, limited partnerships and structuring various off-balance sheet financings. Hawthorn and its affiliates will often times invest directly in early stage and middle market healthcare companies with outstanding management and growth potential. Transactions in this area have ranged from under $1 million to over $20 million.

In the Mergers and Acquisitions area, we identify merger or acquisition candidates for buyers after conducting appropriate research and we advise buyers or sellers of businesses in valuing, structuring and negotiating transactions and corporate restructurings.

Asset Management, Real Estate and Specialty Finance. Hawthorn arranges financings for corporate clients who are either direct or passive users of property. Alternatives explored for this type of health care client include real estate syndications, equity and mortgage financing, and sale/leasebacks. A Hawthorn principal and Hakman & Company are licensed as California real estate brokers.

Hawthorn initially developed off-balance sheet purchase/lease financing for publicly owned specialty hospital operators. Hawthorn, in conjunction with these healthcare clients, formed special purpose corporations to own, develop and lease hospital real estate in different regions around the country.

Additionally, Hawthorn owns long term care facilities which are leased and operated by major operators. We have also organized and funded special purpose, senior care operating companies which are utilized by our clients on an interim, off-operating statement basis, as part of an overall financing strategy to accelerate growth and enhance shareholder value.

In the Market Assessment Study area we have conducted surveys of physicians in selected areas to ascertain the utilization of proposed outpatient facilities. The development of these studies typically was done in conjunction with the development and planned syndication of outpatient surgery centers.

Our Capital and Financial Advisory Services assists corporate clients in the development of effective business plans and capital formation strategies. By serving on the boards of Hawthorn financed healthcare companies we are able to contribute strategic advice and present development and acquisition opportunities on an ongoing basis.
