Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Angela Humphreys examined the benefits of private equity (PE) investment in healthcare in an article published by The PE Hub Network. According to Angela, those critical of PE involvement in healthcare overlook “the positive impact of the enhanced compliance profiles and clinical protocols that PE firms bring to the physician practices they acquire.”

In addition, Angela argues that the signature benefit of PE investment is that healthcare companies gain “a capital partner who will invest the resources necessary to grow the practice and enable physicians to focus on their highest and best use —practicing medicine.”

The full article, “PE’s Record in Healthcare Worth Defending,” was published by The PE Hub Network on November 27, 2018, and is available online.
