Transactions & Affiliations

We approach transaction and affiliation engagements with the strategic, financial, operational, and technological expertise needed to ensure lasting relationships that benefit patient communities.

Our transaction practice provides a comprehensive suite of services to assist leaders within hospitals, health systems, ambulatory surgery centers, and physician groups in navigating the complexities inherent in partnering with other healthcare providers. Our distinctive approach combines a CEO’s strategic perspective with a skilled technician’s understanding of the detailed nuances that impact the success of transactions and joint ventures.

While the flurry of mergers and acquisitions has created a climate of consolidation, many organizations don’t possess the experience or competencies to complete these transactions on their own. ECG’s transaction team, including consultants who formerly served on health system affiliation teams, has the depth of experience that allows us to clearly define strategic objectives, conduct financial impact and contract analyses, and negotiate successful agreements.

Additionally, we are intimately familiar with the day-to-day challenges presented by different types of transactions and the unique issues associated with those involving clinical subspecialties. Regardless of your role in a transaction, our start-to-finish range of services guide and support you and your organization through every stage of the process.
