Dr. Gavin Slethaug addresses questions about private equity and its impact on the future of radiology 

There is an ongoing debate in healthcare—and certainly in radiology—about the benefits and/or perceived risks of working in a private equity-backed practice. As a Radiology Partners (RP) radiologist and a leader within RP’s growth team, I am often asked: “Is co-signing with private equity good for the future of radiology?” In 2022, I addressed this topic during a Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) presentation, and most recently I published an op-ed in Med City News titled How Access to Capital Benefits Radiology and Radiologists.” 

Today, I am pleased to share “Let’s Talk About Private Equity and Other Outside Investors in Radiology.” In this 15-minute video, you will learn more about: 

  • How to differentiate private equity, venture capital and public companies 
  • Insights on radiology practice models—academics, private practice and investor-backed practices—and consolidation trends over the past decade 
  • Why access to capital is good for radiology and why scale is a critical component in facilitating large investments 
  • The biggest headwinds in radiology today (spoiler alert: it isn’t private equity!)
