WHO WE ARE

Headquartered in Nashville, TN, Graham Healthcare Capital (GHCC) provides permanent capital solutions to acquire middle-market healthcare service and technology companies. Our principals bring significant healthcare operational expertise to our partnerships with business owners.

Unlike traditional private equity, we employ a low-leverage, buy-and-hold strategy, partnering with ownership teams over a longer-term investment horizon. This strategy allows for decision making that is best for the company and its management.

A Unique Approach

Traditional private equity seeks to buy businesses and parlay them for greater value in the short-term, typically within three to five years. This view and strategy can lead to decisions that maximize their value upon exit, but are sub-optimal for the company’s long-term viability.

GHCC, on the other hand, employs a long-term partnership approach: we want to be the sole capital partner the company and ownership will need for the remainder of the life of the business. In addition, we bring pragmatic operational experience to help the business grow. This long-term view and growth mindset allow us and the managers with whom we partner to make decisions that are best for the company and its stakeholders.

Our goal is to provide an attractive long-term platform for owners and operators of small-to medium-sized privately held companies that provide value in the delivery and administration of healthcare. As part of our proven, unique approach, we:
  • Provide owners with an alternative to traditional private equity (PE)
  • Bring permanent capital and want to be the only capital a company will ever need
  • Invest with a long-term, buy-and-hold strategy
  • Partner with existing owners interested in remaining in place over the long-term (5+ years)
  • Concentrate exclusively in healthcare with a desire to find businesses that partner with health systems and/or sell to providers
  • Prefer organic growth models in which we plan to reinvest to grow the business
  • Bring significant operational expertise to acquisitions with experience in all stages of company growth
  • Provide management with ongoing liquidity and further upside through our distribution sharing model
  • Access the capital and resources of a multi-billion dollar, closely held, publicly traded company
  • Draw upon synergies from our affiliate, Graham Healthcare Group
