Hildred™ is a New York City-based private equity investment firm focused on middle-market companies across the world of healthcare. We believe our laser focus on shifting industry trends and behaviors allows Hildred to uncover unique opportunities representing multiple healthcare sub-sectors. Our goal is to fuel strategic growth and create exponential value for our portfolio companies, management teams, and investment partners through our blend of operational, financial and commercial acumen.
We're helping growth-minded healthcare companies grow smarter. By operating more efficiently. Scaling strategically. Innovating wisely. And building their brand thoughtfully.
Hildred endeavors to connect the dots across the healthcare industry to help build great companies that lead within innovation and are strategically positioned to grow smarter. Drawing on our real-world experience as healthcare business developers, operators, marketers and investors, we’re helping grow today’s successful companies into tomorrow’s category leaders, partnering with founders and management teams to streamline operations and drive sustainable growth scale for the future.
Hildred’s path begins by uncovering unique companies with untapped potential across the world of healthcare. We then work alongside each portfolio company’s founders, leaders and innovators to help fuel new levels of value, scale and investment performance every step along the way—from sourcing through exit.

Building on our rich healthcare legacy and reputation, Hildred endeavors to drive tangible, repeatable results for companies by deploying our proprietary operationally driven investment and value creation strategy. We believe the heart of value creation is about managing people more effectively, having a better strategy, offering a superior product or service, operational excellence, and doing more with less; it’s these things that drive the intrinsic value of businesses—and, ultimately, financial returns for our investors.
We believe Hildred has an uncommon level of knowledge and operating expertise to skillfully support lower middle-market management teams and navigate the complexities of the healthcare sector.
Great things in business are never done by one person; they are done by a team of people. We take great pride in how we work alongside each other, our management teams, and investors.
We seek companies in the lower middle-market with solid fundamentals that have operational and scale up needs to reach the next level of growth. We aim to reverse solve for the path to value creation so that companies at exit are highly attractive and positioned for the long term.
We seek to drive value through operational improvements—rather than multiple expansion and the aggressive use of debt—and design our strategy to be repeatable across all markets and environments.
We believe that incorporating environmental, social and corporate governance ("ESG") considerations into its decision-making process can be beneficial in terms of supporting sustainable long-term growth of the portfolio companies.
As an organization, we are mindful of the ethical and societal impacts of the investment activities and has thoughtfully designed its approach to investments, governance, and operations in a manner that aligns its commitment to investors, portfolio companies and employees.
