About Us

A Dynamic, Growing Community

The Healthcare Private Equity Association is a not-for-profit trade association driven by a mission to create a dedicated network that strengthens the knowledge and relationships of the healthcare private equity community. We continuously evolve and expand to support our members as they build successful and enduring healthcare businesses that “do well” while also “doing good.”

Since our founding in 2010, we’ve built a valuable, vibrant community of more than 1000+ investment professionals— representing 90 member firms — devoted to creating sustainable healthcare businesses. Collectively, HCPEA’s member firms have over $3 trillion AUM and represent one of the largest portfolios of privately held healthcare-related businesses.

Founded as the first sector-focused trade association in private equity, HCPEA strives to promote a greater understanding of private equity’s contribution to the healthcare economy. We do this by supporting initiatives that highlight the appeal of the sector, investing in the professional development of our members, and facilitating interaction among our members and the larger healthcare investment community.
