Hospitals are getting into the business, doctors have started their own, and strategic buyers (provider groups, venture capitalists, private equity firms) are licking their lips. Buyers are swallowing up small centers in order to build large-scale platforms in this increasingly profitable sector. Some current owners are looking to grow these businesses to a national level.
