2018 saw a remarkable volume and breadth of private equity and venture capital investment in health care, with transactions spanning the spectrum of primary care, to specialty care, to
whole hospital systems, and reaching beyond the direct provision of care to ancillary services involving data management and electronic health records. The industry saw similar breadth in transaction size, ranging from single practice acquisitions to multi-billion dollar take-private transactions.

This Bulletin summarizes five notable transactions or clusters of transactions that were indicative of private equity investment in health care in 2018.
