Focused Expertise

Highly specialized sell-side advisory services for founder operators in the healthcare sector.​

Our firm’s scope of services is narrow and complementary: merger and acquisition advisory, debt and equity capital raises, and strategic advisory for the healthcare industry. Core to our values is a focus on sell-side services for founder-operators. We understand the “emotional pull” many founders feel when considering a liquidity event, and we pride ourselves on being great listeners and working closely with our clients to formulate a strategic path to achieve their goals. Our ability to deliver is also rooted in purposefully limiting the number of active engagements at any given time to ensure that our team has the capacity and flexibility to provide personalized advisory services on each of our transactions.

Mergers & Acquisition Advisory

The Westcove team brings decades of experience advising middle market healthcare organizations through the merger and acquisition process. We focus exclusively on sell-side advisory service in an effort to minimize any potential bias or conflicts when providing guidance to our clients. We find the best strategic fit for each client to maximize transaction value, and secure their legacy and future prosperity.

Debt & Equity Financing

An organization’s need for capital is not always synchronized with the optimal time for a sale, majority recapitalization, or change of control event. Westcove works closely with entrepreneurs to determine their organization’s capital needs. We then leverage our network of financing options to tailor a solution that provides clients with access to capital that best aligns with management needs. Westcove typically arranges growth equity and debt financing on behalf of its clients in the $10-50MM range.

Strategic Advisory

Developing a strong and collaborative relationship with our clients is the cornerstone of Westcove’s success. We showcase this philosophy strongest through our strategic advisory services. Clients leverage our decades of transactional experience to make decisions within their organizations today that can have meaningful impact on a future liquidity event. As strategic advisors, we provide introductions to industry leaders and experts, evaluate potential acquisitions, and most importantly, act as a strategic guide to the often-overburdened founder.

TESTIMONIALS
" We had been approached many times by investment bankers and private equity firms directly and I never had a good sense that the person wasn't just focused on earning a fee or getting a deal done. We were proud of the business we created and wanted to find someone that would take the time to really appreciate why we were special. While with his previous firm, Justin proved to be a the sounding board that we needed and I always felt protected during the process."

" The experience in the healthcare space along with the professionalism were very comforting with what was one of the biggest business decisions in my life. We worked closely together from beginning to end while Justin was with this predecessor firm, and within a very short period of time, I was presented with several qualified buyers. I was extremely happy with the ultimate outcome of the transaction and I have no doubt that Justin and his team will manage his engagements at Westcove in a similar manner."

" I credit my success as a physician and practice owner largely to knowing when to seek expert advice and guidance. So, when it came time to explore selling my practice, I wanted an experienced professional. With Justin and his previous team, I was guided step by step through the process, and I am incredibly appreciative for getting me the best offer and making the process go so smoothly. Justin is among the most accomplished negotiators and leaders in the field. Highly recommended."

" I had the good fortune to work with Justin Hand while I was at Minnesota Eye Consultants and again in my consulting business while he was with his predecessor firm. As an accomplished professional with excellent communication skills, he can take complex data and distill it into succinct relevant facts. Justin’s ability to connect with people allows him to build consensus between all parties, such as legal counsel, outside advisors/consultants and physician groups of all sizes."
