Merger Facilitation & Physician-Hospital Integration

There are many factors that may prompt a merger, acquisition or sale of a medical practice. Micro-level factors such as the retirement of a physician are common, but the macro-level changes in reimbursement and payment policies are driving physicians and medical practices to integrate with hospitals or health systems at an accelerating rate. The transaction costs for these deals are substantial, so organized due diligence in evaluating the economic, operational and human elements in advance is essential for any value to come of the process, whether the result is a transaction or a discontinuance. Our firm can guide you through the process and help you optimize the potential for success. We can facilitate due diligence, conduct project management, act as an impartial third-party to help reach compromise and agreement, develop contracts and facilitate merger integration activities.
