Cardiology Private Equity - Physician Growth Partners

Cardiology Private Equity – Market Update

Summer 2021


Cardiology is one of the newer sectors seeing interest from private equity. There are just six notable platforms currently active in the space. Compared to other healthcare services verticals such as dermatology, eye care, or pain management, cardiology has remained relatively untouched until recently.

The specialty is gaining traction in the private equity space as hospital employment deals expire and more procedures can be completed in physician owned facilities given macro dynamics around reducing cost. By partnering with private equity, independent practices have found attractive opportunities to gain scale, bring costly ancillaries in-house, and gain operational/management support to expand in their markets.

We believe that Cardiology is among a new wave of sector consolidation where early movers can choose from some of the best partners and get a head start in terms of consolidating regionally.
