As private equity looks to replicate its successes across specialty physician services, significant investment activity has begun to occur in the gastroenterology sector. The goal of these investment transactions is to create an alignment between clinically leading gastroenterology groups and private equity firms to position the physicians for growth and success in the ever-changing health care environment.

Previously, we hosted a webinar regarding the impending private equity investment into the gastroenterology specialty in September of 2017. At the time, Gastro Health was the only platform in the sector. Since then, private equity investment has continued to flow into the GI segment with the formation of several new private equity platforms. Through this webinar, we provide an update on the current state of the market as it has developed significantly over the last two years.

This webinar includes insight from both an investment banking advisor and health care attorney who have been active in guiding physician groups through private equity transaction processes in gastroenterology and will draw on the knowledge gained from being at the forefront of consolidation within GI.
