Concise view of how health reform affects valuations

BVWireIssue #145-2
October 8, 2014

Health reform has resulted in a maze of new laws, regulations, and mandates that all have their effect on the valuation of healthcare providers, particularly hospitals. During a recent BVR webinar, Don Barbo (Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP) and Robert Mundy (Pershing Yoakley & Associates, P.C.) gave a rundown of the current status of the major healthcare reform measures and their potential impact on the value of various entities in this industry.

Free download: The presenters also provide a very interesting chart that examines various types of healthcare entities and the potential impact health reform has on the four key areas affecting valuation: profitability, growth, risk, and marketability. The entities covered include acute care hospitals, physician practices, rehab facilities, ASCs, imaging centers, and others. For a copy of this chart, go to BVR’s Free Resources page.

An archived version of Barbo and Mundy’s webinar, “Hospital Valuations,” is available here.
