Array Behavioral Care recently completed a Series B round led by Wells Fargo Strategic Capital which included new participation by Health Velocity Capital and multiple existing shareholders. Array will use the investment to continue to build upon its market leading position by accelerating growth in both existing and new geographies and increasing its established base of psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners and behavioral health professionals.
MOUNT LAUREL, NJ – Array Behavioral Care, the leading telepsychiatry service provider organization in the US, recently secured additional investment to further advance its mission to improve access to timely, quality behavioral health care for even more individuals across the country.
Wells Fargo Strategic Capital (WFSC) and Health Velocity Capital recognized the importance of Array Behavioral Care’s work and the opportunity presented. They each made a significant investment to help fuel its continued growth. In addition to these new investors, many existing investors also contributed additional capital.
Array Behavioral Care is the new brand identity for InSight + Regroup, the combined organization formed by the 2019 merger between InSight Telepsychiatry and Regroup Telehealth. The new brand, including a new name, logo and website, was announced in early 2021.
Array addresses fundamental challenges related to timely access to mental health care for emergency departments (EDs), community mental health centers (CMHCs), Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and an array of other care settings. The organization’s OnDemand Care division provides emergency departments with timely psychiatric consults, enabling quicker access to care and significantly improving the throughput of EDs. Array's Scheduled Care division provides CMHCs and FQHCs and other community-based settings with much needed access to psychiatric services and specialists in underserved communities. Array also has an AtHome Care division, which offers psychiatry and behavioral health services directly to individuals in their homes or other private settings.
“We are excited to welcome Wells Fargo Strategic Capital and Health Velocity Capital as key investors. Their knowledge of the industry and expertise in healthcare services, together with the continued trust and support of our existing investors, will allow us to make an even greater impact at a time when it is needed most” said Geoffrey Boyce, CEO of Array Behavioral Care. “This marks a significant milestone in our next phase of growth as we strive towards helping healthcare organizations, payers and individuals across the country access behavioral healthcare. With this new funding, we will be able to move faster to enhance our service offerings and operations, implement and use better systems, hire more people, take on new initiatives and increase our overall market presence and impact.”
Rod Altman, MD, Managing Director of Wells Fargo Strategic Capital, who led the deal commented: “As we look to the future, we believe in healthcare companies like Array Behavioral Care that provide high quality and cost-effective care across the healthcare ecosystem. We are excited to partner with the Array team to expand its market-leading position in behavioral care.”
Marty Felsenthal, Partner at Health Velocity Capital, noted: “With significant prior experience in both telemedicine and behavioral health care at companies like Teladoc, MDLive, Livongo and Ginger, our Partners believe Array Behavioral Care is extremely well positioned to serve the nation’s unfortunately growing mental health crisis. We were clearly facing shortages of clinicians prior to the pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus, those shortages are even more acute now, and we believe the pandemic has and will continue to drive rapid continued adoption of telemedicine in behavioral health.”
Wells Fargo Strategic Capital and Health Velocity Capital join other industry leaders and early investors in Array Behavioral Care including Harbour Point Capital, HLM Venture Partners, OCA Ventures, OSF Healthcare, Impact Engine, FristCressey Ventures, Hyde Park Angels and Wasson Enterprise. Dr. Altman and Mr. Felsenthal will sit on the organization’s board of directors.
Robert Juneja, Co-Founder and Partner of Harbour Point Capital added: “Harbour Point Capital is impressed with the progress that Array Behavioral Care has made since our initial investment. We feel privileged to have been part of the journey to improve access to mental health care for underserved individuals, facilities and communities and are excited to welcome two new strategic investors for this next phase of growth.”
