Philosophy & Governance

We believe that even seasoned CEOs can benefit from mentoring by industry veterans.


We back seasoned entrepreneurs with our capital, our reputations, and our integrity. Health care is a complex and fragmented industry, representing an ever-growing portion of GDP. Within the larger health care ecosystem, HEP is focused on the health care IT and services sectors, accounting for approximately 10% of GDP. There will be significant changes in the coming decade to how health care IT and services are provided, consumed and reimbursed. Since investment performance in these sectors will be affected by the changing health care landscape, understanding and anticipating market trends is critical.

These changes will result in a wide range of opportunities for nimble and innovative health care service and technology companies. HEP believes that the current level of growth equity investment in these sectors is insufficient relative to the opportunities that exist.


We have attracted former CEOs and senior executives from some of the most successful hospital systems and health plans to serve on our portfolio company boards. Executives from the following organizations serve or have served as independent directors of our current and former portfolio companies:

  • Accuro Healthcare Solutions
  • The Advisory Board Company
  • Allina Health
  • Anthem
  • Ascension Health
  • The Cleveland Clinic
  • ConnectiCare
  • Health Alliance
  • Ingenix
  • Intermountain Healthcare
  • University of Pittsburgh Medical Center
  • WellPoint

"The Partners at HEP have served as indispensable colleagues, mentors and investors. They truly understand the business of healthcare and share our passion for reforming the system. "
