Health Care

Our long-tenured health care team has been involved in more than $11 billion of transaction volume, and has extensive industry relationships that enable us to understand the nuances of a complex and ever-changing health care industry.

MDP has focused on investments in health care for more than 30 years, and has successfully invested across a broad range of sub-sectors. Our significant industry experience and network of relationships allow us to identify and assess new investment opportunities and drive value creation opportunities across our portfolio companies.

Demonstrated Success

MDP’s Health Care team has a successful investment history across decades in the industry, despite the complex and ever-changing aspects of reimbursement and regulation. Based on our experience, we develop unique value creation opportunities with our management partners that result in significant shareholder value creation.

Broad Industry Relationships

Our relationships are valuable resources for our portfolio companies—both informally and through direct involvement as a member of the Board of Directors. Our Health Care Industry Advisory Group offers additional insight and access, which includes individuals with unique senior leadership experience across the healthcare industry.

Aligned Strategic Vision

MDP’s Health Care team believes in strong partnerships, and we’ve had significant success partnering with selling shareholders, including corporations, family-owned businesses and other institutional shareholders, to provide partial liquidity while still allowing continuing investment for the company's next stage of growth.

"I learned in a short period of time how to think about our business differently with MDP’s counsel. We were a company owned by the same founders for 41 years, and MDP asked all the questions we never asked ourselves. They were engaged every step of the way and so committed to success."
