Women’s Health Private Equity – Market Update

Spring 2021


Women’s Health is a relatively new sector of interest for private equity groups (the first investment from private equity was Ares partnership with Unified Women’s Healthcare in 2013 before investment halted until 2017). In a short period of time, the industry has seen rapid consolidation with nearly 70% of acquisitions to date occurring in 2020 or 2021 (showing resiliency amidst a global pandemic).

The considerable acceleration of transaction activity has created a rapidly closing window for groups to be “first movers” in their market. Platform acquisitions have been coupled with many add-on acquisitions as existing platforms look to increase regional density and expand into new geographies.

Despite the heightened deal activity in the last year, there is still considerable opportunity in the industry with private equity still in the early innings of consolidation within the women’s health sector. The opportunity remains very strong for groups interesting in pursuing partnerships with private equity to achieve their goals and succession plans.
