Four paths to adding value.

What makes DW Healthcare Partners unique is our deep industry knowledge and operational experience in the healthcare marketplace.
We work with our partners to develop a strategic plan to accelerate growth. This could involve an aggressive strategy to acquire competing businesses to consolidate the market, or it could include the build-out of a direct sales force to launch innovative products in a new channel. Whatever the situation, we are uniquely positioned at DW Healthcare Partners to help our partners plan and execute their desired growth strategies.

BUILDING STRONG BOARDS

With every investment, we help our partners create a strong, highly-functional board of directors. An independent board of directors offers our partners a forum where new ideas and approaches can be discussed, and discipline can support capital allocation decisions.
