New York, New York – August 31, 2015 – Tenex Capital Partners, L.P. has closed the sale of portfolio company Medical Solutions, LLC, a leading travel nurse staffing company.
Tenex and co-investors acquired Medical Solutions in June of 2012, and in February of 2013, Medical Solutions acquired On Assignment’s Travel Nursing division. Medical Solutions was founded in 2002.
Medical Solutions, the third largest travel nurse staffing company, places nurses and allied professionals with acute care hospitals and other medical facilities for short and long term assignments. The company has 237 employees supporting over 1,550 average travelers, across 880 medical institutions nationally.

“We are pleased to achieve a very successful outcome for all stakeholders”, said Tenex Managing Director Varun Bedi. “During the investment period, the company achieved significant operating efficiencies resulting in historically high margins. Medical Solutions also executed a complicated acquisition of a corporate carve-out, which required transformational change to bring the performance standards up to the level expected of our customers. I am very proud of our team and management for achieving all of this over the course of slightly over three years of ownership.”
