A portion of proceeds will be used to drive growth and expand the company's footprint in NY and contiguous states


NavaDerm Partners, LLC ("NavaDerm" or the "Company"), a dermatology platform and portfolio company of BelHealth Investment Partners, LLC ("BelHealth"), a healthcare private equity firm based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, announced the completion of a financing with CRG, a healthcare investment firm.

They understand provider businesses and I look forward to working with CRG and BelHealth to continue on our path toward building a world class dermatology platform in the Northeast. Dr. Geronemus also added, "we are very excited to continue to add new physicians, grow our plastic surgery practice and open de novo locations. This capital also helps us continue to provide the latest and best-in-class equipment for our physicians that provide the best clinical outcomes for our patients.

Scott Li, CRG Managing Director stated, "We are excited to work with the NavaDerm team and their supportive investors from BelHealth. NavaDerm partners with many of the top dermatologists in the Northeast and its differentiated physician-led model helps them provide superior clinical care for patients."
