Skip to the end of the Expertise Menu

Gastroenterology Associates of Northern Virginia (GANV), the leading provider of digestive health services in Northern Virginia, has been acquired by Gastro Health. GANV provides gastroenterology services through four clinical locations, two endoscopy suites, and two surgery centers. Provident Healthcare Partners (“Provident”) served as exclusive financial advisor to GANV. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Without Provident, I am confident we would not have achieved the same results. Their expertise, patience, and professionalism made the otherwise intimidating process of partnering with private equity a comfortable one. I recommend without reservation,” commented Dr. Ahmed Hegab, Managing Partner of GANV.

“The densely populated Northern Virginia market is highly fragmented within gastroenterology; the partnership between GANV and Gastro Health positions the organization to continue to be a long-term leader in the region,” stated Eric Major, Director at Provident.
