How did you both get involved in the healthcare industry?
Jake: Nate and I have somewhat of a shared background. We met after college at the healthcare consulting company we worked for at the time. We were the younger guys on the team, and both new to healthcare. We were put on the project that was buying healthcare entities that were going bankrupt or that were having difficulties, and then the consulting group would go in and restructure the operation.
