BOSTON and NEW YORK, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Constitution Medical Investors, Inc. (CMI), a Boston-based private investment firm focused on healthcare sector-related acquisitions and led by senior healthcare executives Patrick Sullivan and Daniel Levangie, today announced its formation in partnership with Warburg Pincus, the global private equity firm. Mr. Sullivan is the former President and Chief Executive Officer of Cytyc Corporation and, until recently, served as Executive Chairman of Hologic, Inc. , which acquired Cytyc in October 2007. Mr. Levangie previously was Executive Vice President of Cytyc Corporation and President of Cytyc's Surgical Products Division. He currently serves as a director of Hologic, Inc.

Constitution Medical Investors will focus on the identification and acquisition of innovative, healthcare-related platform technologies and companies where the principals will be able to leverage their product development, regulatory, clinical and commercial experience.

"Having helped to build Cytyc Corporation to its preeminent position in women's health, and with the integration of Cytyc with Hologic now complete, we are excited to put our extensive experience to work in a new venture," said Mr. Sullivan. "We are proud of our track record of success in creating value in the healthcare marketplace, and we are very pleased to partner with Warburg Pincus, which will provide us with world-class support and resources that will allow us to once again make a real difference in improving medical care."

"Pat and I have enjoyed a symbiotic business relationship for more than 20 years. I can't think of a partnership with more potential than what we have formed with CMI," said Mr. Levangie.

Bess Weatherman, the Warburg Pincus Managing Director who leads the firm's investment activities in medical devices and healthcare services, said, "We are very excited to join Pat and Dan in the formation of CMI, and are eager to work with them in the identification of opportunities that will leverage their deep experience and industry know-how."
