Consolidation with the industry is the norm and the number of independent hospitals is declining each year. Yet in many client hospitals, the board and management prefer hospital independence. Is that still an option? Under what circumstances? And what focus should the organization pursue if that is their objective? We will explore these questions, and will also review factors that might point to merger being the best option.
Join HSG Managing Partner David Miller and Director Travis Ansel as they:
1. Define the factors driving consolidation within the industry
2. Summarize the strategies and tactics that give you the best chance to excel as an independent hospital and
3. Define the rationale for merging, despite your desires.
