Matthew Josef Gorelik is a devoted father and avid supporter of the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, which helped his daughter overcome a brain tumor. Professionally, Matthew J. Gorelik uses his real estate investment skills to lead TownshipCapital as founder and CEO.
Township Capital bases in Los Angeles and focuses primarily on private equity backed initiatives, investing in new developments and other value added real estate opportunities through general partnership co-investment agreements.
This type of investment structure includes both general partners and limited partners. General partners typically provide the expertise and operating experience while limited partners provide the majority of the funding investments. For example, a deal may make a general partner responsible for 10 percent of the required equity while a limited partner funds the remaining 90 percent. However, that general partner will take on more of the day-to-day work activities, such as negotiating deals, securing financing, managing assets, and conducting market research and due diligence.

The Los Angeles County Department of Health Services’ EMS Agency governs the program to ensure that all trauma centers meet government regulations. Requirements include a multidisciplinary quality improvement system, board certified physicians available around the clock, and research activities. Moreover, trauma centers must maintain high quality medical facilities to include operating rooms, a blood bank, and an intensive care unit.
