Trending industries – Health care
Industries that we are monitoring
Based on our ongoing review of data from public sources, we are monitoring the continued challenges being faced in the health care industry.
Health care company trend
Stand-alone, not-for-profit hospitals have been increasingly challenged over the past 15 to 20 years, with the clear trend being to sell, merge, affiliate or fold. Marginal not-for-profit hospitals are further challenged by difficulty in accessing the capital markets. The Affordable Care Act has increased the trend of health care systems further pushing into the M&A market in order to acquire strategically important capabilities within the industry. Physicians are also very active in the M&A market, either "selling themselves" to large physician organizations or hospitals, or exiting private practice altogether to become direct employees of these larger organizations.
Deloitte CRG’s featured engagements this month include work with the following selection of clients: multinational company, restaurant chain, consumer product manufacturer and an interior products company. For an in-depth look at Deloitte CRG’s recent engagements, check out featured engagements.
