Healthcare – Specialty Care
Healthcare will continue to be an attractive space for buyers in the years to come. Private equity groups are paying close attention to the high fragmentation of certain subsectors in the specialty care industry, increased regulatory and administrative requirements, and accelerated rates of retirement. While COVID-19 has had an impact on valuations, M&A activity in the market persists. In addition to the popular sectors of dental, vision and ophthalmology, and dermatology, many buyers have shown increased interest in fields such as physical therapy, mental health, and substance abuse.
