LockeBridge Capital Partners is pleased to announce that the firm has expanded its Healthcare Facilities & Services investment banking practice with the addition of three industry veterans.

Changes in healthcare costs, reimbursement rates, and federal policies are impacting the plans of most healthcare participants. As a result, we have never been more active advising on M&A transactions, strategic partnerships, and financing alternatives across a range of healthcare verticals. LockeBridge clients range from early revenue companies raising capital to fund innovative healthcare IT initiatives to multi-billion-dollar international medical device companies seeking acquisitions and divisional divestitures to post-acute care facilities seeking to acquire, merge or divest.

Scott Waxler, LockeBridge Managing Partner, comments “For non-healthcare sectors deep subject matter expertise within the vertical is often not necessary.  Within the healthcare sector however, industry specific expertise on matters pertaining to compliance, regulations, processes & methods and numerous other industry specific issues is often critical know-how for investment bankers. 

At LockeBridge our Directors not only have a thorough understanding of industry specific issues impacting the merger, acquisition and selling process, they have first-hand operational knowledge only garnered by those that have years of operational experience working with providers”
