Transaction Services

The market for health care mergers and acquisitions is active in several areas of the health care industry. The activity is driven by multiple factors such as network development to be ready for looming bundled payment, financial struggles of smaller providers and changing physician employment trends. BKD has developed a comprehensive approach to help clients assess transaction targets and identify risks related to a proposed acquisition. We also can help entities considering selling their organization to implement a “sell-side” diligence plan to make sure you are ready to enter the market.

Health care transaction planning must address several industry-specific matters. Our health care experts work closely with the professionals of our transaction services team to help quickly identify and quantify issues and provide the solutions and insight needed before investing in another company.

In recent years, BKD has completed more than 60 due diligence engagements with a combined purchase price in excess of $1 billion. We can help your organization understand a target company’s strengths, weaknesses, potential risk areas and improvement opportunities.

Our flexible approach is tailored to the specific needs of each transaction. We can work with you to determine the appropriate scope of work, confirm the company’s value drivers and help reduce uncertainty.

Our typical focus areas include:

McCune-Brooks Regional Hospital

“The BKD Corporate Finance team did an excellent job representing the financial interest of McCune-Brooks Regional Hospital in the transaction. The Board of the city-owned, not-for-profit hospital had a fiduciary duty to ensure long-term access to health care in the community. Although we knew who the likely party was going to be in the transaction, BKDCF used their expertise in health care transactions to negotiate the financial components of the transaction from a position of strength. The BKDCF team did an excellent job managing the process, helping to achieve an outcome that was approved unanimously by the Board."
