Gauge Capital Closes Sale of Miami Beach Medical Group to Sun Capital Partners Affiliate

Southlake, TX – Gauge Capital (“Gauge”), a leading middle market private equity firm, has announced the sale of Miami Beach Medical Group (“MBMG”) to an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners, Inc. (“Sun Capital”). The transaction officially closed on December 14, 2020.

Headquartered in Doral, FL, MBMG provides primary care, specialty care, and ancillary services to Medicare Advantage (“MA”) and Managed Medicaid members under global “at‐risk” contracts.

“We invested in MBMG believing they delivered better health outcomes at a lower cost than alternatives. MBMG’s model is a win for providers, payors, and patients, and we’re grateful to Founder Dr. Dumenigo, CEO Efrain Duarte, and the rest of the management team for scaling the business to deliver its benefits to more people,” said Drew Johnson, co-Founder and Managing Partner at Gauge Capital.

“Dr. Dumenigo and the Miami Beach management team have been great partners over the last four years,” said Stan Dennis, Managing Director at Gauge Capital. “This has largely been a growth story, and we are confident that Sun Capital and management will have continued success.”
