Outcomes-based initiatives, technological advances, nontraditional buyer activity, and even new customer preferences are all wrenching the post-acute care industry.


These transformations are impacting the industry’s vast array of providers --

  • skilled nursing facilities
  • inpatient rehab facilities
  • outpatient rehab & physical therapy
  • home nursing
  • hospice
  • and private duty care.

Private equity investors are confronting enormous expectations. In real time, they must stay up-to-date not only to avoid costly mistakes, but also to capitalize on exciting new trends. 


For example, take the thriving home healthcare sector. Lack of access to care and chronic personnel shortages are stoking investments in technologies that provide remote monitoring.


On the yin hand, regulatory and reimbursement pressures are mounting at facilities-based providers, causing them to frame new operating approaches. 


On the yang hand, entirely new sectors are evolving networks of post-acute providers, performance measurements, and tech tools that boost productivity across the ecosystem. 


Consider -- Last year private equity investor GTCR acquired GreatCall, a mobile healthcare technology company serving older adults and their caregivers. Just a few months later, GTCR sold that business to Best Buy.


The retailer is providing GreatCall access to its distribution network, showcasing it alongside other investments in initiatives focused on the aging population.



Register now for The Capital Roundtable’s full-day conference on “Private Equity Investing in Post-Acute Healthcare Companies,” being held Thursday, November 8, in midtown New York City.


You’ll gain valuable insights from our 20 speakers who will assess the outlook for PE investments in all sectors of the post-acute healthcare industry -- from rehab facilities and palliative care, to outpatient therapy, to home and community-based care, whether provided by nurses, family, or private-duty care givers.



Rural healthcare is another field where private equity firms are finding opportunities and unmet needs. Across the nation, 87 rural hospitals shut down between January 2010 and August 2018.


These care gaps have spurred investments like Apollo Global Management’s deal in July to acquire LifePoint Health.


Formerly a sleepy backwater of the post-acute industry, programs for the elderly and chronically ill are drawing increased interest in the wake of Welsh Carson Anderson & Stowe’s investment in InnovAge, which helps seniors age independently in their home and local communities. Currently, 36 states offer PACE programs, providing comprehensive healthcare services to patients deemed eligible.

Here are Three Reasons Why You Should Join Us


  1. Learn what measures investors must take during compliance due diligence to help ensure their deals don’t fall apart

  2. Hear our speakers dissect the consequences of changing reimbursement policies in the post-acute care sector.

  3. Hear our experts’ take on real estate plays and opportunities in investing in post-acute facilities. 


Certainly, despite how regulatory uncertainty has been dampening M&A activity in some corners of the post-acute care industry, deal-making is still active in the hottest segments.


Providers with more than $10 million of EBITDA in sectors such as hospice, physical therapy, Medicare home care, and private duty home care are attracting multiples well north of 10x in many instances.


Many long-term acute care hospitals and skilled nursing facilities are being valued based on their real estate, not their earnings streams. On the flip-side, with an uncertain regulatory outlook and a tendency toward hefty debt loads, deal-making for long-term acute-care hospitals has stalled.


In addition, post-acute care providers are facing potential technological disruption. Take Amazon for example -- an executive at the tech giant publicly expressed interest in the elder care market, putting providers on notice.
