Provident Healthcare Partners (“Provident”), a leading healthcare investment banking firm, announced it has advised Verdi Oncology, Inc. (“Verdi”), a portfolio company of Pharos Capital Group (“Pharos”), on a transaction with The US Oncology Network (“The Network”), pursuant to which Nashville Oncology Associates (“NOA”), based in Tennessee, and Horizon Oncology (“Horizon”), based in Indiana, have joined The Network.  NOA and Horizon offer comprehensive oncology services using advanced diagnostic methods, therapeutic options, and access to innovative clinical trials.

Provident’s deal team was led by Director Dustin Thompson. Bass, Berry & Sims PLC served as legal counsel to Verdi Oncology.

“We were very pleased with the guidance and insight the Provident team provided throughout this process.” commented Bill Herman, CEO of Verdi.  “The Provident team not only has an in-depth understanding of the oncology space, but they know the subtleties and tendencies of the major aggregators within the industry. This understanding was very valuable.”

“We were excited to advise Verdi and Pharos through this transaction process as they have grown NOA and Horizon into high-quality cancer care providers in their respective markets making them ideal additions for The Network. NOA will represent The Network expansion into Tennessee and Horizon adds growth to the Indiana market while bringing clinical trials to The Network’s preexisting practices,” noted Thompson.
