Health Care System Expansions: Challenges and Legalities Regarding Mergers and Acquisitions

Be prepared. Understand the intricacies of a health care system merger and acquisition before an opportunity arises.

Changes in the health care landscape over the past ten years have drastically increased the amount of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity involving health care systems. Such transactions are complex and once-in-a-lifetime events in the life cycle of many companies, and the intricacies of the deal - from start to finish - must be appreciated. This topic is designed to help internal and external stakeholders appreciate the challenges and identify the opportunities in health care system M&A. Lessons applicable to massive transactions are similarly applicable to smaller deals, and real-life examples encountered in the speakers' combined 20+ years in health care transactional experience will help bring these issues to life.
