The Impact of Mergers and Acquisitions on the Healthcare System


Healthcare acquisitions and mergers are expected to shift back to pre-COVID rates soon. In fact, most large healthcare systems experienced strong financial gains over the past few years and are well-situated to acquire smaller hospitals, medical/diagnostic facilities, and physician groups. In addition, payers are moving to purchase medical practices and pharmacy networks are also operating in this space.
