Mergers and Acquisitions: Partnering for Success

Increasing financial pressures are pushing providers and even non-provider entities to engage in healthcare merger and acquisition activity. Value-based reimbursement, shrinking hospital margins, and record-high healthcare spending are pushing providers to consider new partnerships to achieve efficiency and cost control, and providers are contemplating healthcare mergers and acquisitions sooner rather than later to achieve their goals.


Key topics:

  • Reasons why a hospital partnership is a great opportunity and has potential to grow patient satisfaction

  • How to make the most of your merger

  • What steps need to be taken to ensure the easiest transition process?
