InvestSouth’s families have deep experience in managing and growing large operating companies. Consistent with current trends of other family offices, we pursue operating company investments or acquisitions as a strategy to enhance overall returns – either via free cash flow or high growth opportunities. We prefer to invest in industries in which we have prior experience or with partners with relevant backgrounds. We do not function like a traditional private equity sponsor with a specific life cycle target for the investment. We have some businesses our families started that we have owned for decades.
Interim Healthcare of the Upstate
On January 1, 2018 InvestSouth purchased what is now Interim Healthcare of the Upstate. Interim provides Home Health, Hospice, and Personal Care and Support in upstate South Carolina. We are fortunate to have a strong and talented management team leading this organization and promoting a culture of high quality and compassion. We have brought our deep healthcare operating company experience to support the company’s strategic initiatives at the board and ownership level. The team has continued to drive high growth including expansion into two new counties (for a total of eight) so far in 2019.
Our ownership group is excited and honored to be involved in a business providing such a high level of care to patients in our local communities. On April 23rd 2019 Interim Healthcare of the Upstate will celebrate it’s 40 Year Anniversary and we sincerely hope we are involved in shaping the next forty.
