Dr. Albert Waxman founded Psilos Group, a healthcare-focused venture and growth equity fund, after a lengthy career as a healthcare entrepreneur.

Prior to founding Psilos, Dr. Waxman spent nine years as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Merit Behavioral Care and its predecessor companies, American Biodyne and Medco Behavioral Care. During this period, he brought American Biodyne public, led its sale to Medco Containment Services (later acquired by Merck), organized a management buyout of it from Merck with KKR, and grew the company’s revenues to over $800 million. Merit Behavioral Care was acquired by Magellan Health Services in February 1998.
Prior to American Biodyne, Dr. Waxman founded and served as President, Chairman and CEO of Diasonics, Inc., one of the first medical companies to provide ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging in the U.S. Dr. Waxman holds several U.S. and foreign patents for display, imaging and diagnostic technologies and products.
