New Jersey Urology (NJU) is one of the largest urology groups in the United States. It was formed when Prospect Hill Growth Partners, a leading middle-market private equity firm, formed a practice management services group, Urology Management Associates (UMA), to focus on the urology specialty.
NJU partners with leading urology groups who desire a strategic partner with the capital resources and business expertise to position them for continued success and growth within their markets. NJU removes the burden and increasing complexity of running a medical practice in today’s environment which facilitates the delivery of outstanding care at the lowest possible cost.
