In Post-Acute & Home Healthcare Companies

November 7, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Many Positive Trends Suggest
That Post-Acute & Home Healthcare
Opportunities Will Remain Strong

Private Equity Investing
In Post-Acute & Home Healthcare Companies


Much like a baby boomer who exercises and eats right, the post-acute and home healthcare industry keeps going strong!

According to one estimate, the industry is continuing on a years-long roll, logging 382 deals between 2014 and 2018, up from 278 in the preceding five-year period.

After the sector’s banner year in 2018, perhaps investors can be forgiven for assuming it may be due for a slowdown.  After all, that year included the $4.1 billion acquisition of Kindred-at-Home by Humana and a consortium of PE firms – not to mention the $2.4 billion merger between LHC Group and Almost Family.

But many positive trends support an optimistic view that the industry’s market strength will provide investment opportunities for 2020 and possibly 2021 —

  • Demographic factors continue to be favorable – by 2030, one in every five U.S. residents will be over 65.
  • Acceptance of post-acute care continues to grow – the percentage of inpatients discharged into a post-acute arrangement rose to almost 50% in 2016, up from only 30% in 2006.
  • The shift to a value-based care model – where reimbursement gets tied to outcomes and cost of service – rather than a traditional fee-for-service model.
  • The recession-resistant nature of healthcare.
  • The abundance of opportunities to diversify into new post-acute subsectors or to increase their geographic density.
  • Low supply and high demand for scaled, high-quality platforms.

These trends explain why in spite of high valuations, many investors are doing new deals and building platforms, while more and more new investors are entering the sector.

All the same, pending regulatory changes and moves toward value-based care mean some sub-sectors are facing heavy tailwinds. For instance —

  • Hospice —  Continues to be a top priority for strategic and financial buyers given consistently strong demographic trends, a favorable reimbursement outlook and the attractive organic and inorganic growth inherent in the sector.  Vistria Group recently acquired Hospice of South Carolina, on the tail of its 2017 acquisition of St. Croix Hospice.  HIG Growth acquired Sage Hospice and MBF Healthcare Partners acquired Affinity Hospice in 2018, and Summit is in the process of acquiring Abode Healthcare.
  • Personal Care Services (which entails less skilled services than home health) — Is attracting more interest as some services are now supplemental benefits under Medicare Advantage.  Bain and J.H. Whitney-backed Aveanna Healthcare’s agreement to acquire the home health care division of Maxim Healthcare Services.
  • Home Health — Has tempered a bit due to PDGM, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ home health payment reform plan. The Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare has estimated that PDGM could mean $1 billion in lost revenue for home health providers in 2020. However, that doesn’t mean deals aren’t getting done.  For instance, Advent International recently acquired AccentCare.
  • Other adjacent areas — There are also opportunities adjacent to hospice and home healthcare, such as in-home infusion, and service providers like pharmacies and durable medical equipment providers that are providing services to home health companies. In one recent deal, BlueMountain Capital Management became a minority investor in Adapthealth, a provider of home medical and respiratory equipment, prior to the Company going public via a SPAC merger.
