Ross Care’s Managing Director, James Parramore will continue to lead the Ross Care business and will join the executive leadership team of the enlarged group, which will be headquartered in Southampton and have 45 service centres nationwide and 1,200 colleagues delivering over 70 contracts.

    Andy Dodd, Gerard Lucas, Callum Sellar and Rachel Green of Dow Schofield Watts provided corporate finance advice to the shareholders of Ross Care.

    Michael Turner, Ross Care’s Chairman and majority shareholder, said: “Ross Care has a fantastic heritage and I am extremely proud of all that we have achieved to this point. I know that the company has the capability to achieve much more but this is the natural point for me to pass the company to new, trusted custodians who can deliver on its future potential. In Millbrook, Ross Care has a perfect partner, and together the companies should achieve great things.”

    Dr Amit Thaper, who led the Cairngorm Capital team, said: “Ross Care is an excellent company that is highly regarded by its customers and service users.  The combination of Ross Care and Millbrook is strategically compelling and delivers additional capabilities and services across the group, to the benefit of all customers. Significant investments are taking place for both businesses and we look forward to supporting Phillip Campling and James Parramore to deliver their growth plan.”

The hospital offers vital emergency medical services as well as certain inpatient services to the North Georgia communities.

    Christopher Durham, the General Manager at ValorBridge expressed his appreciation for Mazzone & Associates by stating, “For many reasons, Mazzone & Associates is our partner of choice in our merger, acquisition and growth capital investment activities. Their capital markets experience enabled us to swiftly execute during the transaction phase, and their experience as operators proved to be invaluable while managing the operations of the hospital as debtors-in-possession.”


    ValorBridge Partners, founded in 2004, is a holding company that owns several affiliated operating companies, including ApolloMD, a successful, hospital-based physician services firm that treats over 2.6 million patients each year nationwide.
