United Urology Group - Buyer Spotlight


PE Firm


Audax Group is one of the most active lower middle market healthcare private equity investors. The firm has invested in many similar areas including 42 North Dental, Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery, Axia Women's Health, Gastro Health, Great Expressions Dental Centers, HOPCo, Phoenix Physical Therapy, and others.


Audax partnered with Chesapeake Urology, a large (~90 physicians) practice in Maryland in 2016. We view this as the first urology investment in this wave, typical of Audax Group as an early mover.
