Chains have best effect on acquired hospitals, survey says
Modern Healthcare

Multistate chains do a better job at improving the financial performance of acquired hospitals than local or regional systems, according to a Deloitte analysis.

The survey—which included 77% of hospital deals forged in 2007 and 2008—looked at the financial performance of acquired hospitals through 2010. It found that national chains take better advantage of workforce, supply chain and payer synergies, and they’re also more effective at increasing volume.
