Mission

Investing in the Right Side of Healthcare Change

Our mission is to be the best healthcare private equity firm. This means:

Being the partner of choice for entrepreneurs
Having a reputation for supporting and growing exceptional healthcare companies
Generating excellent returns

Healthcare is the largest industry in the US, and it’s growing at twice the rate of GDP – creating tremendous pressure for industry improvements.

Nashville is the center of U.S. Healthcare and is home to more than 400 healthcare companies that account for more than $70 billion of revenue and employ more than 400,000 people.

Our goal is to ensure every investment we make is on the right side of change in healthcare – supporting companies that improve the healthcare system and who will help accelerate the shift from volume of service to value. While change is often slow and unpredictable, we seek investments that perform well in the current environment and will thrive as the pace of change accelerates.
