Blue Sprig Pediatrics, Inc. (BlueSprig) along with Florida Autism Center and Fusion Autism Center (FAC) announced a strategic partnership to create a top-five national provider organization and a leading provider organization in the Southern United States of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy services treating children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that one in 59 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with ASD by the age of eight. ABA is the gold standard of care for children diagnosed with ASD and BlueSprig and FAC are committed to partnering with provider organizations and opening new clinics to increase access and fulfill the unmet need for high-quality behavior analysis treatment.
The transaction follows a period of transformative growth for BlueSprig, which was formed in 2017 with the backing of KKR. Upon completion of the merger, BlueSprig and FAC will serve more than 1,800 families at nearly 110 clinics across 13 states. The combined company will have a leading position in the Southern United States, including the states of Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma, and Texas. KKR is providing new capital from its Health Care Strategic Growth Fund to fund the merger and support the continued growth of the combined company.
Headquartered in Houston, Texas, BlueSprig is an autism services provider organization in Texas with locations in Arizona, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, and Washington. BlueSprig was founded in 2017 and is a clinic-based provider of applied behavior analysis therapy services to children with autism spectrum disorder.
Florida Autism Center was founded in 2005 and provides applied behavior analysis treatment services to children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
