Advanced Healthcare Partners (AHP) is partnering with LCG Capital in an effort to increase profitability and growth for local healthcare companies. AHP, a healthcare consulting company, was launched by Jimmy St. Louis earlier this year. The partnership with LCG Capital, a Tampa-based investment bank, will help healthcare companies by providing a broad range of financial advisory services.
“LCG Capital has been very successful, and I believe we will mutually benefit from this partnership through utilization of their resources and experiences financing companies and through our expertise in healthcare operations,” says St. Louis. “I believe that 30 to 50 percent of the business that we bring to the Tampa area will be a result of our relationship with LCG Capital
St. Louis is the son of one of the co-founders of the Laser Spine Institute (LSI), and was the former chief operating officer of LSI. He started AHP
in hopes of increasing revenues for healthcare companies by offering business growth solutions so physicians and researchers can focus on serving patients and improving medicine.
“We are looking for innovative technology within the medical field that we can help bring to market,” St. Louis says. “Helping companies in the healthcare sector grow will have a positive economic impact on the Tampa area.”
According to St. Louis, that economic impact could be into the millions, even billions of dollars over the next three to five years.
“We plan to run and manage 20 to 25 small scale companies, which are typically between 3 and 5 million dollars, as well as five to eight larger operations that are between 25 and 50 million dollars,” St. Louis says. “If those high scale companies employ 100 people each that could have a great impact on Tampa’s economy. ”
