Scott Safriet is a Partner in the Boca Raton office.

Safriet has more than 20 years of broad healthcare experience, with more than 15 years spent exclusively on a healthcare valuation focus, primarily addressing any type of agreement or compensation arrangement which may have Stark and/or Anti-Kickback implications.  Prior to becoming a Partner at HealthCare Appraisers, he served as Vice President of Sales and Business Development for a national in-home care services organization. During his tenure there he was responsible for all sales, contracting and strategic alliance / M&A activities, resulting in an increase in annual revenues from $35 million to $95 million.  Before this, Safriet was a senior executive with a national healthcare consulting firm whose emphasis was on strategy, business planning and acquisitions/mergers and joint ventures. In addition, he spent the early part of his career as an established executive with a national managed care organization and was primarily responsible for physician and hospital network development activities in his select geographies.

Safriet is a Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA) and holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Corporate Finance.  He is a frequent speaker and author on healthcare valuation topics.
