NEW YORK--()--Hammond Hanlon Camp LLC (“H2C”), a healthcare-focused investment banking firm, served as exclusive financial advisor to Southern Maryland Hospital Center, leading the sales process to conclusion. H2C highlighted to bidders Southern Maryland Hospital Center’s long history as an essential acute care provider on the Southern Maryland Peninsula and the hospital’s strong potential for organic growth. Through a carefully managed sales process, H2C was able to obtain several highly competitive bids with fully negotiated asset purchase agreements prior to final selection of MedStar Health as a partner. The process focused on finding bidders that combined both leading healthcare delivery organizations with well-known academic medical centers. As a result of H2C’s experience in sell side transactions, H2C maximized the purchase price, and secured significant future capital expenditure investments to grow the hospital’s services. H2C completed the process from onset to closing within nine months.
“H2C did an excellent job in the sale of Southern Maryland Hospital Center. The H2C team performed superbly, created a robust auction for Dr. Chiaramonte’s life’s work, and ensured the hospital’s continued importance in the community for generations to come”
