Ory will be the sixth senior member of Brentwood Capital Advisors’ healthcare services team. He will continue advising middle market healthcare companies across several sectors, with a focus on alternate site providers, physician practices, outsourced services providers and specialty distribution.

Brentwood Capital Advisors’ recent healthcare services transactions include representing CareHere in its sale to Premise Health, Family Care Center in its recapitalization with Revelstroke Capital Partners and Family Support Center in its sale to The Speech Pathology Group.
