Waud Capital Partners Acquires Revenue Cycle Solutions, Inc.

Launches Healthcare Patient Account Resolution Platform Company

Chicago, IL, May 9, 2011 Waud Capital Partners ("WCP" or "Waud Capital"), a leading middle-market private equity firm, today announced that it has acquired Revenue Cycle Solutions, Inc. ("RCS" or the "Company"). RCS will serve as the platform investment in WCP's effort to build a best-in-class patient account resolution company serving hospitals, hospital-based physician groups and other healthcare facilities nationwide.

Established in 2002 and headquartered in suburban Chicago, RCS partners with over 100 hospitals across the country and provides a wide range of account resolution services, including early-out self-pay, third-party insurance and aged receivables recovery. Through a patient-centric approach, from operations in Westchester, Illinois (headquarters) and Hoover, Alabama, the Company assists its clients with accelerating cash flow, increasing profitability and driving operational efficiencies in the revenue cycle.

"Hospitals face increasing profit and process challenges with the continuing shift toward higher patient-responsibility for co-payments and deductibles. Given these challenges, healthcare revenue cycle improvement is a necessity and our platform is focused on providing unique business process outsourcing solutions, said David Neighbours, Partner at WCP."

"We analyzed a number of investment opportunities in the multi-billion dollar hospital account resolution market, and we were attracted to RCS because it gives us the immediate opportunity to expand the Company's geographic footprint and add additional service offerings through both organic and acquisition growth," said Eric Gordon, Vice President at WCP.
