Hospital mergers and acquisitions in the United States declined in 2013, but the number of hospitals and hospital beds involved in those transactions hit a five-year high, according to the 2014 Health Care Services Acquisition Report.

M&A activity in 2013 was paced by the acquisition of Health Management Associates by Community Health Systems for $7.6 billion and the sale of Vanguard Health Systems to Tenet Healthcare for $4.3 billion, the year’s two largest hospital sector deals.
