In the current volatile healthcare merger and acquisition transaction market, it’s likely that independent physician practices with more than 15 providers (i.e., physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, etc.) have already been or will be contacted by several potential investors expressing interest in creating a strategic option, including acquiring the practice. This may raise many questions for the practice owner: What’s next for my practice? What is my practice worth? When is the right time to consider a strategic option? What does a sale transaction look like? Knowing the answers to these questions will prepare you to make an informed decision and help yield optimal results.
