Peter has been involved in the healthcare industry for more than 25 years. He started his career as a healthcare investment banker at Credit Suisse in New York City, where he specialized in healthcare mergers and acquisitions. He left investment banking in the mid 90’s to co-found a physician practice management company with a client, which ultimately went public. He then co-founded HealthGrades.com, which sold in 2010 to a private equity firm. Peter did some consulting work for Ohio Health in Columbus, where he was introduced to the world of sleep medicine, and where he identified a huge problem: 80% of people with obstructive sleep apnea aren’t diagnosed, and are therefore not treated. Those that are diagnosed are almost all placed on CPAP therapy, but approximately half of them cannot or will not tolerate it. Thus he founded Sleep Treatment Solutions with the mission to help make the diagnosis process easier for the patient, treat more people, and provide an alternative to those that cannot or will not tolerate CPAP therapy.
