Arizona Healthcare Mergers & Acquisitions Attorneys
The healthcare industry is ever changing. In the last decade, the number of solo and small group practices has declined. This decline is due to a number of factors, including younger providers preferring to join larger practices or groups upon completion of their education and training, the prospect of greater work-life balance, a predictable income stream, and solo and small practices feeling pressure to grow in order to compete with other providers and obtain greater negotiating power with insurers.
The growing administrative burdens created by the government and insurance industry are often difficult for solo and small practice groups to manage or implement. In addition, the level of care coordination demanded in today’s healthcare industry often requires a higher level of organization and more personnel than a solo or small group practice can afford. This has led to solo and small group practices working with healthcare mergers and acquisitions lawyers to discuss various options including merging, selling to larger physician practices, hospitals and healthcare systems buying up solo and small group practices, and an increase in affiliation and joint venture arrangements designed to combine resources, expertise and to save money.
