A local provider of medical workstations for the acute health care market has received funding in amounts not disclosed from a Massachusetts-based private equity firm, a deal requiring the investment participation of the local company’s CEO and his management team.

According to a company statement released Monday, Riverside Partners of Boston has “completed its investment” in Stinger Medical, a Murfreesboro-based provider of mobile clinical stations and medical technologies.  ­

Stinger Chief Executive Officer Gary Coonan participated in the funding along with unnamed members of his management team. Stinger officials could not be reached for comment Monday.
