Bowstring Advisors (“Bowstring”), formerly CHILDS Advisory Partners, served as the exclusive financial advisor to Guardian Healthcare Providers (“Guardian” or the “Company”), a specialized healthcare staffing company, on its sale to Epic Healthcare Staffing (“Epic”), a portfolio company of Webster Capital (“Webster”).

Guardian recruits both international and domestic healthcare professionals for assignments ranging from one to three years throughout the U.S. Through offices in Nashville, TN and Louisville, KY, the Company serves clients that provide care in a wide variety of settings. The Guardian team looks forward to working with both Epic and Webster and is excited about the strategic and cultural elements of the combination.

They positioned us perfectly within the crowded healthcare staffing landscape and tailored the process to identify the best partner.”

As part of the Epic platform, Guardian is well-positioned to capitalize on its growth opportunities and strengthen its position as a leader in international nurse staffing.

Ross DeDeyn, Managing Director at Bowstring, added “Guardian is differentiated not only by its business model but by the focus and passion of its many talented employees. We truly enjoyed working with the Guardian team and look forward to their achievements as an integral part of Epic.”
