The Vistria Group Named by PitchBook as Top Investor in Elder and Disabled Care Sector
The Firm is recognized for completing the most deals in the growing space
Chicago, IL, July 7, 2022 — PitchBook, the capital market data and intelligence solutions company, recently named The Vistria Group as the leading investor in a list of the top ten private equity investors in the elder and disabled care sectors. Since 2017, The Vistria Group has completed numerous transactions within the space, a demonstration of the firm’s commitment to serving complex and vulnerable populations in lower-cost, higher-value home & community-based settings.
“At our core, we’re an impact-oriented firm, and within healthcare, that impact leans toward themes that are centered around improving access and value for underserved, high-needs populations,” says David Schuppan, Senior Partner at The Vistria Group. “In the elder and disabled care spaces, you consistently find individuals with disproportionately lower health equity and greater health spend that can benefit tremendously from superior access to comprehensive and coordinated in-home care. Helping these underserved, high needs populations receive quality care in the comfort of their homes is both preferred and ultimately, reduces uses of costly institutional care.”
As one of the largest investors across in-home care sectors, The Vistria Group has built a strategic portfolio and network of companies and relationships, respectively, that provide and support a comprehensive range of in-home care delivery, technology, and outsource solutions that address the complex needs of elderly and disabled populations.
“With respect to improving access and value, Vistria truly has a unique window into the opportunities that in-home care offers,” says Matt Schulz, Partner at The Vistria Group. “We employ an interdisciplinary approach and world-class teams of professionals to identify and build market-leading companies across the in-home care spectrum. By leveraging the collective depth and breadth of our in-home portfolio and strategic relationships, Vistria is able to access superior investment insights and value creation opportunities that benefit the populations and companies we support.”
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, the US population of 65 and older increased by 36% from 2009 to 2019, adding over 14.4 million people to the total of 54.1 million individuals in this age bracket. In the past five years, the top ten private investment firms listed completed 140 deals across the elder and disabled care industries, including retirement homes, assisted living communities and other related services. As a champion in the space, The Vistria Group has completed numerous transactions since 2017 to date, with its investments in AgapeCare Hospice, Help at Home, HomeFree Pharmacy Services, Medalogix, Mission Healthcare, PHCN, Sevita, St. Croix Hospice, VitalCaring (fka Homecare Holdings) and several add-ons.
“We are very purposeful about generating value creation plans that align all stakeholders around a common vision,” says Ron Malone, Senior Operating Partner at The Vistria Group. “Each of these companies have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to producing the highest clinical quality and outcomes of care provision. We’re pleased to continue building our partnerships while expanding our reach with new investments to address the spectrum of complex, diverse needs of this population.”
