White Oak Healthcare Finance Provides Incremental Financing to DW Healthcare Partners-backed SoClean, Inc.

May 16, 2018

OXFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2018--White Oak Healthcare Finance, LLC (“White Oak”) announced today that it closed an incremental financing for SoClean, Inc. (“SoClean”), a portfolio company of DW Healthcare Partners (“DW”). White Oak financed DW’s acquisition of SoClean in 2017. SoClean is the only provider of fully automated cleaning devices for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (“CPAP”) machines. CPAPs are used to improve health outcomes for those suffering from sleep apnea and other sleep disorders.

“SoClean’s products have changed the industry,” said White Oak Managing Director, Ross Eldridge. “The company has been focused on scaling their operations and building a strong team for expansion. SoClean’s execution has been impressive and we are excited to continue supporting their growth.”

SoClean cleaning devices sanitize the CPAP mask, hose and reservoir without the need for disassembly, water or chemicals. Improperly cleaned CPAP equipment is filled with harmful bacteria and germs that could make people sick. Unlike traditional soap and water methods and cleaning wipes, SoClean’s natural approach to CPAP sanitizing kills 99.9% of bacteria, which leads to a healthier breathing experience.
