Who are the parties interested in physician practices?

There are two types of parties interested in partnering with a physician practice: strategic entities and financial entities:


Strategic entities are ambulatory surgery centers, hospitals and health systems, and other physician practice groups.These groups are typically looking to partner with (including acquiring) practices as a means of expanding their network and improving patient access, referral, and retention; providing ancillary services; increasing specialties provided; gaining size and negotiation advantage against the government and payors; and enhancing their competitive standing.


Financial entities are typically PE sponsors that are backed by significant capital resources. PE sponsors can use their operational and financial resources as well as growth-oriented expertise to consolidate operations, implement back-end efficiencies, and allocate resources towards new services, technologies, or offerings that improve the patient experience.
