Growth.

Health Enterprise Partners is a lower middle market private equity firm investing in healthcare services and information technology companies.

HEP is an exceptional partner to our company. Having had the privilege of working with several PE firms, HEP’s thoughtful, fair and consistent approach, combined with its unique blend of industry expertise and a remarkable network across healthcare, places HEP at the top of the class – they get an A+ in my book.
