“Essex Woodlands has an extraordinarily deep understanding of the markets in which Touchstone Health operates. Whether it’s navigating a regulatory maze, raising investment capital or sharing unique operational insights, Touchstone has been fortunate to have Essex Woodlands in its corner. Essex Woodlands has repeatedly helped Touchstone detect and exploit opportunities that it would not have discovered independently. Essex Woodlands’ ability to create value as a long-term investor has been critical to the building of Touchstone’s business.”
