Apollo Medical Holdings Announces The Acquisition Of A 50% Ownership Stake In The 128-Bed French Hospital In Downtown Los Angeles For $17 Million

Plans for the 90,000-square foot facility include a 24-hour urgent care center, behavioral care, multispecialty clinics, imaging center, diagnostic lab and telemedicine

ALHAMBRA, Calif. and GLENDALE, Calif., July 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. ("ApolloMed" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: AMEH), an integrated population health management company, today announced that two of its affiliates, Network Medical Management ("NMM") and Allied Pacific of California ("APC"), have acquired a 50% ownership stake in the 128-bed French Hospital, the oldest hospital in Los Angeles, for $17 million.

ApolloMed partnered on the acquisition with AHMC Healthcare, which operates seven hospitals in Los Angeles County and Orange County.  The total cost of the 2.5-acre, 90,000-square foot facility was $33 million.  The French Hospital, established in 1860 during a smallpox scare to serve the French community who lived in Los Angeles at the time, was acquired from the non-profit Societe Francaise De Bienfaisance Mutuelle De Los Angeles.  The hospital closed in November 2017 after its operators chose not to renew the lease with the French society because state law required the facility to complete nearly $100 million of earthquake renovations.

ApolloMed and AHMC plan to convert the facility into an integrated care center, complete with a 24-hour urgent care center, multispecialty clinics, imaging center, diagnostic lab, pharmacy, behavioral care center, infusion center and will also provide telemedicine services.  When fully operational, the center will be a one-stop healthcare destination that can provide coordinated, patient-centered care, and maintain needed health care services for the community.

"This is a strategic investment for ApolloMed.  Healthcare is trending away from hospitals and towards outpatient care," stated Warren Hosseinion, M.D., Co-Chief Executive Officer of Apollo Medical Holdings.  "Together with AHMC Healthcare, we envisioned the future of healthcare and will create a community-driven, patient-centered integrated care center."

"We chose the French Hospital because of its location: easily accessible for local patients, close to the highway for patients from farther away, and also because of Downtown Los Angeles' changing demographics," stated Thomas Lam, M.D., Co-Chief Executive Officer of Apollo Medical Holdings.  "We will strengthen our footprint in the Downtown LA area and expand our provider network in the area."

"To provide the highest level of quality care, we are continually upgrading our services to provide the best outcomes for our patients," stated Kenneth Sim, M.D., Executive Chairman of Apollo Medical Holdings.  "Throughout our history, we have supported innovation and integration to best serve our members.  Our new integrated care center will allow us to draw more patients, provide point-of-care coordinated care and enable greater collaboration by clinicians."
