M&A and Distressed Transactions


An upsurge in healthcare M&A is on its way in America as the pandemic impels providers who had been contemplating a transaction to take action for offensive growth or defensive protection.

Some have been exploring buying opportunities to expand and accelerate growth. Others have considered a strategic partnership to secure economic stability and capital for a dynamic, thriving future. Distressed organizations, now further in jeopardy, are looking to sell in hopes of preserving a level of healthcare in the community.

All healthcare providers hold a unique position in their communities – at the intersection of health, business and politics. Few things are as important for them than a transaction or major partnership.

That’s why realizing the full benefits of any transaction requires careful articulation of “the why,” clear communication through deal close and deep understanding of how to navigate political and emotional stakeholder relations to secure buy-in.
