|Hospital Network Formation – A Growing Alternative to Mergers|
transformation, uncertainties over the impact of repeal and replace
legislation, physician integration, technological advances, and
competitor re-structuring all are shaping the course of hospitals and
healthcare delivery for the next decade and beyond. A plethora of these
and other economic and market pressures on hospitals and health systems
are driving intensified developments and consideration of mergers,
acquisitions and strategic partnerships.
Joining or forming a robust hospital network is a viable alternative for hospitals to mergers and acquisitions as a business strategy. Networks provide many of the same benefits as a merger or acquisition but allows each entity to remain independent. Networks can assume various shapes and structures—there is no one set format. Networks can vary from close integration to loose collaborations. Still, a close examination of the current legal and strategic issues involved with hospital network participation is critical before embarking in further developmental or decision-making activities.
Please join us Thursday, June 29th, 2017 at 1 PM Eastern as Epstein Becker Green's Gary Herschman and John Barry discuss trends; alternative structures; legal and compliance issues; network features, benefits and disadvantages; and current examples around the country.
