NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Regal Healthcare Capital Partners (“Regal”) is pleased to announce that it has been chosen by Inc. Magazine (“Inc.”) as a Founder-Friendly Investment Firm for the second consecutive year.* Inc.’s annual list of Founder-Friendly Investors recognizes private equity and venture capital firms with leading track records of successfully working with and supporting entrepreneurs. To compile the list, Inc., in part, interviewed founders who have completed transactions with private equity and venture capital firms to hear their experiences and assess how the founders’ businesses have grown during these partnerships.

Since its founding in 2018, Regal has partnered with the founders of 13 healthcare services businesses. Regal is a partner of choice for founders due to the breadth of experience of its team, which includes founders who have navigated the process of choosing an operating and financial partner, operators who have executed high growth strategies delivering clinical excellence, and financiers who have helped these companies optimally capitalize for expansion. The Regal team includes physicians, healthcare services experts, entrepreneurs and operators.

Prior to co-founding Regal, Dr. David Kim, an emergency room physician and serial healthcare entrepreneur, navigated the process of choosing and successfully working with private equity partners multiple times. This track record and experience gives Regal an unmatched ability to work seamlessly with founders.

“We are thrilled that Inc. has recognized our unique ability to help healthcare founders grow their businesses while still providing access to quality healthcare,” said Dr. Kim. “We look forward to continuing to lend our operational and financial expertise to help our partner founders overcome obstacles and meet their full potential,” added Regal co-founder Jon Santemma.
