The consolidation trend seems to be unstoppable as hospitals and health systems of all sizes continue to join forces rather than try to go it alone.

Through seven articles, a Q&A, and five case studies, this HealthLeaders Media Insider Report examines trends in healthcare mergers, acquisitions and partnerships. Topics investigated include the advantages and challenges of combining resources, financial integration, and the difficulties of merging the cultures of two (or more) distinct organizations.

Of course, there are organizations that buck the trend; this report takes a look at how holdouts are able to remain independent, considers the advantages of strategic partnerships over mergers, and asks about the dangers of 'too big to fail' hospital mergers, in addition to providing in-depth analysis vital for healthcare leaders.

You’ll learn strategies for success, including integration priorities and best practices from leading organizations, such as:

  • What factors should hospitals and health systems consider when combining resources in clinical affiliations? 
  • What is a Northwell Health board member's unexpected advice about merging the cultures of two organizations? 
  • As insurers continue merging, what should healthcare leaders know about "superjumbo" payers? 
  • What is Virginia Hospital Center's secret weapon in its fight to remain independent?
