Baird’s Business Owner Solutions (BOS) group is pleased to announce that it advised Digestive Health Specialists, P.A. (DHS), the largest independent gastroenterology practice in Tupelo, Mississippi, on its sale to One GI, a portfolio company of Webster Equity Partners. DHS’ partnership with One GI provides them with a strong foundation to continue to extend their outreach throughout the Midwest & Southeast U.S.

Baird BOS began advising DHS when the company was already in advanced discussions with One GI regarding a potential sale. The BOS team provided guidance on pricing and terms relative to current market conditions, as well as information about other potential partners in the space. With BOS’ advice, DHS selected One GI as its preferred partner and finalized a strong agreement between both firms.
