Edgemont 2018 Otolaryngology Outlook Report
Otolaryngology or ear, nose, and throat (“ENT”) represents one of the few physician specialties to remain relatively untouched by outside investment and consolidation. Physician practices in various specialties have seen heavy private equity investor interest, and market trends continue to push the industry into consolidation. The key drivers of consolidation include healthcare reform, dramatic shifts in employer/payor strategies, availability of capital, perceived benefits of scale, and increasing physician interest in transactions that ensure long-term practice success while diversifying wealth.
