MTS Health Investors, LLC makes equity investments in operating companies within services sectors of the healthcare industry. We focus on profitable companies that deliver cost-effective services and have the ability to gain market share in industry segments that are typically large, growing, fragmented and poised for consolidation. Investment targets are primarily U.S. companies with valuations of $25 million to $300 million, although we will selectively invest equity capital in larger transactions in partnership with other leading private equity funds.

We have over 50 years of experience working with companies within our target sectors and have invested in or advised over 100 such companies during our careers. We use this experience and our extensive network to rapidly assess new opportunities, and then bring additional resources and relationships to our portfolio companies to help them meet their operating and investment goals.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss potential investment opportunities that meet our Investment Criteria with owners of healthcare businesses, healthcare operating executives, other private equity funds, M&A intermediaries and other advisors.
