How will I be affected after the closing of a transaction?


As you transition from the role of a practice owner, clinician, and administrator to a role more focused on clinical care, your responsibilities and organizational structure may change. While every transaction is different, there are some common themes:


Shareholders will receive a lump sum for the sale of the practice, retain some ownership in the new organization, and receive a market-based salary. 


Shareholders will be able to focus more on clinical care rather than operational and managerial administrative tasks.

Transition and culture

The ultimate buyer will augment existing staff and processes that are in place and leverage new strategies of their own to continue to grow the practice.

Given the changing healthcare marketplace, consolidation of physician practices is likely to continue. For practice owners, understanding your options and taking a preemptive position in the planning process can yield better results not only in terms of valuation, but also the qualitative aspects of a transaction.
