The pediatric therapy healthcare sector is comprised mainly of therapists or owners who operate 1-2 centers. Their options to retire, sell their practice and monetize what they had nurtured for years were very limited. While big therapy companies were primarily interested in acquiring adult practices, financial investors could not see a clear path to a return on investment.
Now, like many newer industries, the pediatric therapy sector has evolved into a bigger, more mature enterprise. Consolidators and investors alike have a newfound respect for this specialty.
So, is this good news for a pediatric therapy owner?... a resounding YES!
First: owner's options to sell the business, add to their retirement nest egg and transition the practice into "good hands" have increased.
Second: the value of their practice has probably increased substantially. Pediatric therapy has always been highly respected by the healthcare community and now with the respect of the financial world - it is a very good thing.
