Serendipity helped launch Louisville hospital company
Luck played a part in the formation of Springstone, a new Louisville hospital company, and its landing of a $100 million commitment to develop the business, its chief executive says.
Springstone, which now operates one psychiatric hospital, announced Tuesday that Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe, a leading health-care equity investor, has become its majority owner and pledged the $100 million.
W. Earl Reed III, Springstone’s CEO, said the company got its start when Patrick Hammer, an entrepreneur he knew, sought his consulting help to develop a hospital outside Evansville, Ind.
