Mergers and AcquisitionsStrategy and Tactical Plan
Due diligence in order to gain growth and an increase in patient market share are essential for business sustainability.
Hospital and Physician Practice mergers or acquisitions are an excellent part of strategizing in the ever-changing healthcare marketplace. Any good business must always be cognizant of the benefits of M&A by combining synergies, stimulating growth, gaining competitive advantages, increasing patient market share, or influencing supply chains.
- A Merger describes two companies uniting, where one of the companies ceases to exist, after becoming absorbed by the other. For example, a smaller hospital being merged into a larger hospital network.
- An Acquisition occurs when one company obtains a majority stake in the target firm, which retains its name and legal structure, and business operations. For example, hospitals or large physician practices acquiring another physician practice to gain patient market share.
