Merger mania is dominating hospital news these days. What's driving headlines such as the Trinity-Catholic East merger or the strategic alliance between Cleveland Clinic and Community Health Systems is the Affordable Care Act. Clients, large and small, are asking themselves if they have the financial strength, market position and in-house capabilities to go it alone as the industry transitions from fee-for-service to value.
Healthcare Strategy Group and Plante Moran have developed a tool to help hospitals and health systems objectively answer the question, “Do we need to affiliate to survive?” The tool can also help determine what type of affiliation along a continuum of possibilities would be most beneficial, from a single service line partnership all the way to full acquisition.
Join us on Thursday, June 27 for a free, one-hour webinar that will cover:
- Four key areas to examine to determine your organization’s need/readiness to affiliate
- The affiliation structure continuum; and
- How your organization can use affiliations to bolster strengths and offset weaknesses as the industry wades into reform.
- VPs of Planning and Business Development
