Crescent Enterprises in TVM Capital MENA's $50m Healthcare Fund
TVM Capital MENA is the first international private equity house with a focus in healthcare to establish operations in the MENA region. The fund currently has two portfolio companies, ProVita International Medical Center , which has been established in Abu Dhabi for over 12 months and is in the process of setting up a second facility in Al Ain; and Bourn Hall Clinic which operates in the Middle East and India and is due to open its MENA reference centre in Dubai in June 2012. Both companies are consistent with the strategy of involving leading global operators to provide unique and specialized healthcare services in the Middle East.
Badr Jafar, Managing Director of the Crescent Group and CEO of Crescent Enterprises, commented "The fund is a sound platform for making attractive healthcare investments in the MENA region and India. Crescent Enterprises, through its portfolio company Clinical Pathology Services (CPS), has been a leader in the provision of high-quality healthcare diagnostic services within the region. The partnership with TVM recognizes and expands the crucial role that private sector development now plays in the healthcare sector. Alongside TVM, we are looking forward to engaging with the healthcare community in an attempt to bring high quality healthcare services, state-of-the-art products and medical technologies to the region."
The first TVM Capital MENA investment, ProVita International Medical Center ("ProVita"), represents a groundbreaking healthcare initiative for the region as the first healthcare provider to offer state of the art long-term care for ventilated patients, and those requiring continuous medical and nursing intervention for serious medical conditions, in a non-hospital setting. ProVita currently operates one facility in Abu Dhabi and is in the process of setting up a second facility in Al Ain.
