Cardiology Private Equity – Market Update

Spring 2022


Cardiology is one of the newer sectors seeing interest from private equity and activity is ramping up. We have seen seven new organizations enter this market over the last two years with four coming online during the last 12 months.

There is no question that cardiology is in the infancy stage of a significant consolidation wave similar that seen before in dermatology or gastroenterology. While cardiology is much newer from a consolidation standpoint, the tailwinds are unmatched.

  • Significant procedure flow moving from hospital-based to physician-owned settings
  • Hospital employment agreements with previously acquired Cardiologists are expiring rapidly
  • Enhanced Medicare reimbursement for value-based initiatives such as Chronic Care Management and Remote Patient Monitoring

Early movers have opportunities to select some of the best PE partners and get a head start consolidating regionally.
