Private Equity in Gastroenterology: Becoming a Platform
Watch the Video on Youtube or Here:
As private equity funds look to replicate their successes across physician specialty services, significant investment activity has begun to occur in the gastroenterology sector. The goal of these investment transactions is to create an alignment between clinically leading gastroenterology groups and private equity firms to position the physicians for growth and success in this ever-changing health care environment. This wave of investment within gastroenterology is expected to result in additional consolidation, even in light of the ambiguous regulatory and reimbursement environment.
While gastroenterology has seen a number of mergers over the past few years, the sector still remains a highly fragmented specialty. Given the wide scope of ancillary service offerings, increasing outpatient surgical volumes, and an aging population, several tailwinds position the specialty for long-term growth. Gastroenterology organizations should become aware of the potential opportunities and risks of private equity-led investment and consolidation.
This webinar will include insight from both investment banking advisors and health care attorneys who have been active in guiding physician groups through private equity transaction processes in parallel specialties and will draw on the knowledge gained from being at the forefront of consolidation across health care.
