Health System Collaborations Rise in Popularity

In November, UW Health in Madison and Aurora Health Care in Milwaukee announced they are looking to collaborate — but they did not explicitly mention the words "merger" or "acquisition."

More health systems are looking at non-ownership deals in which they retain independence, but more importantly, they work together to gain scale and reap operational efficiencies. This is likely to be a growing trend, some healthcare M&A experts have said.

"Once one system pulls the trigger and says they're looking for greater scale, then that has a domino effect," Adam Lynch, vice president at Principle Valuation, told the Business Journal last month.
