The Value of Hospital Mergers

How Patients Benefit When Hospitals Come Together


Hospitals and health systems are transforming; redesigning how they deliver care to provide patients and communities with more convenient, cost-effective and innovative services. Mergers and acquisitions are one effective means for developing coordinated systems of care that fuel innovation and drive value-based care. Realignment is a direct response to the changing needs of communities, continuous financial pressures to reduce costs and the ever-present drive to improve quality for patients

Hospital mergers open doors to:

  • Advanced Quality
  • Enhanced Services
  • Maintain Access
  • Fuel Innovation
