Hospital, Physician Group Deals Dominate in April
(from Bloomberg Law)
- Budding trends can be seen in outpatient care deals, addiction treatment center transactions
- Physician practices are looking at four different deal options
Hospital and health system consolidation and physician practice acquisitions dominated a very busy April in the health-care industry transactions landscape.
“April was the second-most active month of the year, behind March,” Robert Aprill, of Provident Healthcare Partners LLC, Boston, told Bloomberg Law. This “indicates that major market players are increasing their acquisition presence.” Some big industry names were among that group, including Mednax Inc., Humana Inc., and AMN Healthcare Services, all of which closed two deals, he said. Private equity groups, such as Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe and Chicago Pacific Founders also were active in April, he said.
