Creating value through M&A.
A flurry of takeover transactions is sweeping the healthcare landscape. This increase in M&A activity is driven by the need to grow in the face of complex industry dynamics – not least of which is the Affordable Care Act. Hospitals are merging and buying out providers across the continuum of care. Doctors are consolidating into multi-specialty groups. Insurers are looking to link up and are also acquiring physicians. And Private Equity (PE) and REIT investors are seizing opportunities to consolidate long-term care and behavioral health facilities.
BDO guides healthcare systems and investors throughout the entire M&A transaction life cycle, from initial target screening to comprehensive due diligence to post-merger integration. Our clinical, financial, and regulatory specialists help clients conduct due diligence and valuation analyses, providing comprehensive, integrated services in order to reduce risk and make decisions based on a complete perspective. We help providers assess risk and price capitated contracts to ensure optimized contracting between the two entities before a transaction.
In addition to advising PE firms and REITs on acquisitions, we also work with their healthcare portfolio companies to develop growth strategies, implement operational enhancements, optimize reimbursement and contracting, execute follow-on acquisitions, and position for successful exits.
