Abstract

During the 1980s, hospital merger activity was growing steadily due to fundamental changes in the provision of health care. Recently, however, the US Government has escalated its anti‐trust scrutiny of hospital mergers. Provides an indepth analysis of two recent hospital mergers, one of which was successful and the other was not. Any hospital considering a merger can benefit from analysing the strategies that were used to combat the anti‐trust challenge in both cases.
