Q2-2019 Healthcare Staffing Update

Throughout the first half of 2019, acquisition activity in healthcare staffing has remained consistent and diverse across a number of verticals and buyer types. Interest in locum tenens platform and add-on investment opportunities continue to be a trend witnessed across the spectrum of healthcare staffing M&A. In the second quarter, strategic acquirers Aequor Healthcare Services (backed by private equity firm DW Healthcare Partners) and Health Carousel, closed acquisitions of locums focused platforms to help fill demand in the marketplace for highly skilled providers. ​

As private equity firms compete against larger staffing acquirers and private equity-backed providers to acquire leading staffing organizations, we expect valuation multiples to remain consistent throughout the remainder of 2019 and into the new year.
