  • When a company grows through a merger or acquisition, they expect the business to improve so that the result is better than each individual company. Therefore, when you add the 2 companies together, 1 + 1 = 3.On the other hand, when you merge 2 groups of employees together, you want the end result to be one unified group of employees or 1+1 = 1!
  • Administaff has helped many clients through the process of growing through mergers and acquisitions. It is common for clients to tell us that they couldn’t have handled the acquisitions without us. Examples: One client was impressed with the speed of on-boarding the new employees. As a result, continuity was maintained and there was significantly less apprehension and unknowns for the new employees. Another client was amazed by how we assisted with the change management for their employees. Their business model calls for the continued acquisition of small Mom & Pop pharmacies where the continued success of the acquired business is heavily reliant upon the existing employees and their relationships with customers.There are 4 main categories of services that we assist with, and I’ll describe each of these in a little more detail.

  • Challenges Facing America’s Hospitals
    Declining reimbursements
    Uncertainty surrounding healthcare reform
    Increasing regulation
    Accelerating uncompensated care
    Constraints on capital access
    Aging plant and equipment
    Increased competition from niche or specialty providers
    These challenges are causing a widening divide between “haves” and “have nots”
  • Challenges Facing America’s Hospitals
    Number of Community Hospitals,(1) 1988 – 2008
    We’ve lost nearly 500 hospitals since 1988.
    All Hospitals
    Urban Hospitals
    Rural Hospitals

    (1) All nonfederal, short-term general, and specialty hospitals whose facilities and services are availableto the public.
    (2) Data on the number of urban and rural hospitals in 2004 and beyond were collected using coding different from previous years to reflect new Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services wage area designations.
  • Challenges Facing America’s Hospitals
    Percentage of Hospitals with Negative Total and Operating Margins, 1995 – 2008
    Approximately one third of hospitals lose money

  • Challenges Facing America’s Hospitals
    Number of Bond Rating Upgrades and Downgrades, Not-for-Profit Health Care(1), 1993 – 2008
    Source: Moody’s U.S. Public Finance. Moody’s Not-for-Profit Healthcare 2008 Year End Ratings Monitor.
    Data released January 2009.
    (1) Includes stand-alone hospitals, health systems, and human service providers.
    Downgrades have consistently exceeded upgrades
  • Challenges Facing America’s Hospitals
    These challenges are profoundly impacting hospitals across the board.
    Hospitals in all categories are attempting to:
    protect their credit ratings;
    stretch their capital spend;
    preserve their liquidity.
    And at the same time
    grow, or at least protect, market share;
    remain competitive in plant and equipment;
    improve quality;
    be opportunistic with regard to development.
    For many, if not most, this means at least considering some form of a joint venture or affiliation option.
  • LHP Response
    LHP was formed as a direct response to these challenges.
    Our purpose is to form joint ventures with not-for-profit partners to help community hospitals meet their strategic objectives.
  • Who is LHP Hospital Group?
    A privately-held hospital company based in Plano, Texas
    An experienced management team
    Former management team at Triad Hospitals, Inc.
    54 hospitals (10 JVs)
    Owners with financial and healthcare expertise
    CCMP Capital Partners (former private equity arm of JP Morgan Chase)
    Canada Pension Plan Investment Board
    A board with leading not-for-profit healthcare thought leaders
  • Our View on Health Reform
    Likely accretive on average for hospitals
    Winners and losers
    Pricing pressure
    Incentives for coordinating care
    Managing the unintended consequences
    Feels like another round of provider consolidation
