Insightful guidance for your healthcare transactions.

We respond quickly to provide healthcare valuations that guide your strategic goals.

Many business transactions hinge on value. Objective analysis and insights on fair market value give confidence and guide you to the right solution that meets your goals. Our team performs valuations nationwide that comply with Stark Law and anti-kickback statutes. We can design compensation models and ensure financial arrangements are within the boundaries of fair market value.

In the end, you get a clear understanding of any risks involved and the insights you need to make confident decisions.

Physician Compensation Model Design

Our design approach incorporates the latest compensation best practices and compliance mandates to better align behaviors with your organizational strategy. With our experience in a diverse range of healthcare provider entities, we’ll deliver insights that strengthen your ability to recruit and retain high-quality providers and improve the overall patient experience.

Business Transactions

Business valuations can depend on several factors: tangible and intangible assets, economic conditions and specific market challenges. Therefore, you need a team with knowledge and experience in the healthcare industry to understand the regulatory implications and the ever-changing issues that impact value. We provide defensible fair market value opinions for every engagement, including:

  • Business valuation
  • Commercial reasonableness
  • Fair market value
  • Intangible asset valuation
  • Litigation
  • Real estate valuation
  • Tangible asset valuation

Merger & Acquisition Consulting

For hospitals, networks, physicians and dental professionals, acquiring or merging your organization is a common strategy for business and career growth. Similarly, the successful selling of a practice is often a key strategic decision. We work closely with you to develop a strategy in advance to ensure the ultimate success of and secure the optimum value from your transaction.

Whether you are on the buy-side or sell-side of a transaction, we can guide you through the M&A life cycle, from initial identification of potential buyers or acquisition targets to the closing of the deal and through the operational integration of the purchased practice.

Due Diligence

Before a healthcare business is bought or sold, it is crucial to conduct a full examination of its true financial state, tax status and business performance to identify risks and opportunities. Our team of experts is equipped to provide you with the necessary insights and analysis to ensure that your investment decisions are well-informed and supported by data-driven analysis in a timeline consistent with the dynamics of the transaction.
