Private equity firms spent $206 billion on 1,400 healthcare acquisitions in 2021, according to a report by AMN Healthcare

The "Review of Physician and Advanced Practitioner Recruiting Incentives" report for 2023, published July 24, gathered data based on contracts or incentive packages used by hospitals, medical groups and other facilities in real-world recruiting engagements. For its private equity data, the report cited information from the Physicians Advisory Institute and Kaiser Health News.

Here are three things to know about private equity's effect on healthcare recently:

• The number of corporate-owned physician practices increased by 86 percent between 2019 and 2022.

• Private equity firms have invested $1 trillion on 8,000 healthcare acquisitions in the last 10 years.

• The majority of those acquisitions were of specialty groups including gastroenterology, dermatology and urology, which are considered high-revenue-generating groups.
