Innovative ECMO Concepts Partners with 1315 Capital to Focus on Growth
Innovative ECMO Concepts is paving the way for comprehensive ECLS solutions for medical facilities and personnel
Dallas, TX (PRUnderground) October 4th, 2022
Innovative ECMO Concepts (the “Company”), a leading provider of extracorporeal life support (ECLS) services, announced that they received a growth capital investment from 1315 Capital and John Martin.
ECLS is utilized by medical practitioners as a way to bypass cardiopulmonary function to provide extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). This method is used in patients who are suffering from acute and reversible cardiac or respiratory failure. ECLS has been used more frequently in recent years, underscoring a need for more support in this sector.
Innovative ECMO Concepts is the world’s first organization to offer on-demand, online ECMO training for individuals and institutions. The Company also offers per diem staffing solutions, placing highly skilled ECMO RNs, RRTs, and perfusionists in hospitals. Additionally, Innovative ECMO Concepts offers ground, rotary, and fixed-wing transport for patients supported with ECMO.
1315 Capital has partnered with Innovative ECMO Concepts to provide capital for fueling this growth. The private investment firm specializes in the healthcare industry with over $925 million under management.
“Innovative ECMO Concepts has a strong reputation of providing high quality staff and education to the top hospitals in the country,” said Edward Chan, Partner at 1315 Capital. “We are pleased to support the Company to increase ECMO capacity at hospitals and most importantly, increase access for patients.
The Company also announced the appointment of John Martin to Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effectively immediately. John brings a wealth of healthcare staffing experience, having previously served as CEO of THMED prior to its acquisition by Doximity. His mission is to build Innovative ECMO Concepts into the largest provider of outsourced cardiovascular services in the world.
“I am excited to lead Innovative ECMO Concepts through this next phase of growth,” said Martin. “Demand for ECMO is increasing and there is a significant unmet need to train specialists and support hospitals to provide this critical lifesaving service”
Innovative ECMO Concepts was founded in 2014 by Hayden Miller, MS, CCP, and Thomas Preston, MS, CCP, FPP with a mission of supporting the ECLS community and a continuous effort to improve patient outcomes by way of education, research, and evaluation of current ECLS data.
