The Company: Family Care Center (“FCC”) is a new portfolio company of Revelstoke Capital Partners (“Revelstoke”), a leading private equity firm focused on healthcare services and based in Denver, Colorado. FCC is the largest provider of private psychiatry services to U.S. Armed Forces, veterans and their communities in Colorado. Within its outpatient clinics, the Company employs 12 prescribers and 27 therapists that provide treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD and other mental health conditions to over 200 patients daily. The newly formed partnership with Revelstoke will help facilitate the rapid growth of mental health services, a materially underserved and vulnerable patient base, by expanding the geographic and payor footprint through opening new de novo clinics and partnering with more providers.
FCC focuses on helping patients with Major Depressive Disorder (“MDD”), a $75 billion market. In the United States, an estimated 17 million people suffer from MDD, representing 7% of the population.

Tricare and commercial represent ~70% and ~10% of the payor mix, respectively. Demand for private, military focused outpatient mental health services will continue to increase as the Defense Health Agency (“DHA”) has a mandate to shift active duty family members off-base to receive treatment.
FCC provides a full range of evidence-based therapies including medication and non-medication solutions. The Company’s psychotherapy interventions can be used in conjunction with medication or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (“TMS”) to best target the patient’s treatment needs.
