behavioral health transactions
- Continuing the strong trends from last year, 2023 is shaping up to be another solid year for M&A in the behavioral healthcare sector.
- Both residential and non-residential behavioral health services continue to garner a great deal of interest from strategic and private equity buyers, leading to competitive processes and attractive valuations.
- We expect these transaction dynamics to continue, as financial buyers look to deploy capital for platform acquisitions as well as supplementing organic growth through add-on acquisitions. Similarly, large strategic providers are fueling earnings growth through the acquisition of complementary services, extending the continuum of care as well as geographic expansion.
- Clinicians and practice owners who are interested in taking their practice to the next level through a liquidity event should consider taking advantage of the attractive transaction environment we currently find ourselves in.
