Five Minutes in Healthcare is a new series we've introduced in HealthCare Business News, where I discuss current events with some of the industry's most influential leaders, as well as innovative thinkers who are working to meet the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.
Over the last week I have had the pleasure of speaking to Mark Tomaino, Alexander Eitel, Brian Kosar, Matt Tomory and Scott Mackeil. Each interview is approximately five minutes long, or a few minutes over five.
While the conversations frequently revolve around COVID-19, my conversation with Mark Tomaino, an operating partner at Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe, focused on private equity partnerships and the key drivers for creating value in a company.
