Joe Carlon is the Chief Advisor of Pain Management Provider Platforms at SCALE Healthcare.
Joe is a seasoned CEO and Executive with over 20 years’ experience in the healthcare industry. Most recently, as CEO at Pain Doctor, Inc. Joe built a diversified, integrated specialty business, expanding from 9 to 40 locations in six of the largest cities in the US and growing revenue from $16M to $85M, annually. That growth included the development of Surgery Centers, Pharmacies, Laboratories and Medical Clinics across multiple geographies. Partners in those endeavors included Physicians, Health Systems and other Private Equity backed businesses.
Prior to that, Joe was the CEO at a platform medical practice, developing it into a scalable entity that would later become an attractive target for an investor. In 2014 he secured a Private Equity sponsor and successfully recapitalized that business.
Joe started his career and worked for more than a decade in Sales & Marketing at Merck & Co. and St. Jude Medical. That experience helped him develop a deep understanding of Physician needs, how to build strategic relationships across the ecosystem and how to deliver products and services that impact practices and patients.
Joe holds a BA in International Relations from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was also Captain of the Men’s Baseball team, and an MBA from the WP Carey School at Arizona State University. He serves on the Board of the Fresh Start Women’s Foundation and the University of Pennsylvania’s Baseball program. When he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two young kids and finding time for a walk around the golf course.
