2016 Big 5 Healthcare Services Transactions

The 5 biggest health services M&A deals of 2016

The number of healthcare services deals only decreased slightly in 2016, but the overall value of healthcare transactions last year was significantly lower than in 2015. However, there were still many transactions exceeding $1 billion, according to a recent PwC report. 
There were 939 healthcare services transactions in 2016, down from 952 deals in 2015. In both years, long-term care had higher deal volume than any other subsector. 

The healthcare services transactions reported in 2016 had a total value of $71.7 billion. That's down significantly from 2015's total deal value of $177.5 million. The decline in total transaction value is largely attributable to fewer megadeals — transactions exceeding $1 billion — in 2016. There were 14 megadeals in 2016 compared to 18 the year prior.
