Stamford, Conn.-based Galen Partners, a healthcare private equity firm, recently raised $250 million for its fifth fund, which will invest in healthcare information technology/outsourcing, medical devices and specialty pharmaceutical companies.
Galen Partners V seeks opportunities to invest between $10 million to $30 million per deal.

With nearly $1 billion under management raised through five funds, Galen has invested in more than 60 companies since 1990.
