Jon L’Heureux brings more than twenty-five years of experience in various development roles within healthcare, with the last seven years spent in healthcare investing. His investing focus began with Surgical Care Affiliates (SCA) where he concentrated on physician-owned hospitals and served on the Physician Hospitals of America (PHA) board.
Prior to his most recent investment focus, L’Heureux worked in various roles leading national accounts, channel partner and strategic relationships, and sales leadership positions for SpecialtyCare, a clinical purchased services company, Curative/Healogistcs (Wound Care), and Sodexo, which provides outsourced managed services. He is a native of Kansas and a graduate of the University of Kansas.
Prior to his work with WireMasters, Walker practiced law with Waller here in Nashville.
