Changes in the Industry Causing Health Care Mergers and Acquisitions
Due to significant changes in the healthcare industry, many health care entities are merging, changing hands and restructuring. DDRH has assisted both non-profit and for-profit health care entities in strategic transactions that have resulted in health care mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, restructuring and consolidation. Because the firm has expertise in many areas of law in addition to health care law, such as real estate, finance and employment, they are uniquely qualified to handle such significant and complex transactions. They have advised health care organizations on transactional and administrative matters such as the merging of two community hospitals, forming a wholly-owned multi-specialty physician group subsidiary and integrating numerous independent physician groups into a multi-specialty group. Conversely, they also represented a multi-specialty physician group on its integration with a hospital and have advised both physician groups and hospitals on joint venture transactions.
