Seven Hills Women’s Health Centers (SHWHC), a highly regarded OBGYN & breast surgery practice in the greater Cincinnati Area, has joined Axia Women’s Health, a portfolio company of Audax Private Equity. SHWHC will expand Axia’s Midwestern presence into Ohio and Kentucky and obtain Axia’s resources to make acquisitions, add ancillary services, and hire additional providers. Provident Healthcare Partners (“Provident”) served as the exclusive financial advisor to SHWHC. The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Provident’s knowledge and experience was critical in helping Seven Hills achieve a successful closing. Their guidance allowed us to navigate the inevitable hurdles that arise in a deal process and their team was always available to address our concerns. I would highly recommend Provident to others considering a potential transaction process,” commented Dr. Ambrose Puttmann, President of SHWHC.

“Seven Hills is a highly respected provider of women’s health services on a local and national level,” noted AJ Shekar, Vice President at Provident. “In partnership with Axia, the organization is well-positioned to expand access to women’s health services and provide additional value-added ancillaries such as mammography and lab services, among others.”

“The partnership between SHWHC and Axia enables the organization to continue to be a long-term leader in the Tri-State region, while building on a shared vision to improve women’s health across the Midwest market,” stated Dustin Thompson, Vice President at Provident.
