We don’t wait for opportunities to come to us. We analyze the marketplace and bring ideas to strategic discussions we initiate with companies we believe have transformational growth potential.


We excel at the art of the possible. A key to our companies’ success has been a creativity in problem solving and strategy development that removes barriers and opens new pathways to transformation and growth.


Our belief in shared success drives a flexible, collaborative approach, tailored to each situation, that fosters strong alignment and long-term relationships between our team and company leaders.


By design, Water Street companies pursue growth by addressing critical needs—improving efficiency, access and patient outcomes—that both support customer success and positively impact the healthcare system.

We’re proven.

Since our founding in 2005, we have completed more than 165 investments and strategic acquisitions in the course of building 45 healthcare companies. Executives we have worked with would attest to our creative, proactive and collaborative approach—and the value we bring.
