Modern Healthcare

Healthcare deals accelerated in June, a month that saw more than 90 transactions across all sectors and the proposed $4.3 billion acquisition of Vanguard Health Systems by Tenet Healthcare Corp., according to Modern Healthcare’s Healthcare M&A Watch.

Tenet, based in Dallas, would gain scale and reach in Arizona, Illinois, Michigan and Massachusetts with the deal for Nashville-based Vanguard. The proposed acquisition, which includes $2.5 billion in debt, easily eclipsed other large healthcare deals announced in June, including the $1.3 billion deal for the clinical research company PRA International by private equity firm KKR & Co.
