Scaling New Healthcare Concepts When It’s Needed Most


Private equity backed healthcare concepts have a unique opportunity to scale

  • The difficult financial position of healthcare systems + extraordinary opportunities in the real estate market = PE firms can find growth opportunities in a unique pandemic market
  • Healthcare has traditionally embraced a one-off mentality in facility planning, viewing each unit as a unique project creating inefficiencies and higher costs
  • Whether it’s new alternative, consumer-driven concepts or rolled up specialty practices, consolidation is creating larger "chain" healthcare organizations with the ability to scale nationally or in extended regions

Many health concepts are ready for rapid expansion to achieve growth goals and leverage first mover advantage in a changing health landscape. Concepts ready for scale include:

Urgent Care
Women's Health
Alternative Primary Care/Concierge
Care
Dental
Behavioral Health
Pain Clinics
Gastroenterology Clinics
Allergy Care
Dermatology and Medi-spas
Sports Medicine Centers
Plasma Centers
Urology Clinics
Dialysis Centers
Physical Therapy Centers
Testing/Imaging Centers
