Kaufman Hall: 2016 hospital M&A activity keeping pace with 2015

Listen

Kaufman Hall, a provider of strategic, capital, financial and transaction advisory services and software tools, identified 77 hospital and health system transactions in the first three quarters of 2016, compared with 78 transactions announced in the same period of 2015.

"It is not surprising that hospital transactions are continuing at this volume," said Kit Kamholz, managing director of Kaufman Hall. "Payers and purchasers are intensifying their demands across multiple dimensions of value, and few organizations can rely solely on internal resources to meet those demands."

Of the transactions identified in the first three quarters of this year, 25 were announced in the third quarter. Forty percent of the third-quarter transactions involved for-profit acquirers, according to Kaufman Hall.

Two of the transactions announced in the third quarter involved organizations with more than $1 billion in revenue. In September, Boston-based Steward Health Care System secured $1.25 billion from real estate investment firm Medical Properties Trust. NYU Langone Medical Center's proposed affiliation with Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y., also involves organizations with more than $1 billion in revenue, according to Kaufman Hall.
