In an era of healthcare M&A frenzy, it can be hard to step back and take a good hard look at the factors really driving such activity. What specifically will your organization gain by merging or affiliating with another institution? Will a specific affiliation or merger formed today be beneficial — or detrimental — to your institution under a transformed delivery system?
As your independent advisor, Ascendient will help you establish objective criteria for evaluating potential healthcare M&A transactions. We’ll carefully examine not just the needs of your organization, but the overall strategic direction of each potential healthcare M&A partner. Our thorough analysis is designed to determine optimal organizational and strategic fit, and ensure that any potential partner has the capability and willingness to deliver what your organization truly needs – rather than just a shiny new toy.
We’ll even lay out potential structural alternatives to consider before you tie any knot – always balancing your affiliation options against the case for keeping the status quo.
Let Ascendient’s team help you transcend the personalities and the puffery – so you can determine the best course of action for your situation.
