Panel 1: Leading through Mergers & Acquisitions

The only constant in life is change, and no industry has experienced more change and upheaval in recent years than the healthcare industry. Hospitals have been caught up in a sweeping trend of consolidation and there has been much debate about whether consolidation in the healthcare sector will help or hurt patients, with many arguing that fewer hospitals will result in higher prices and inferior care. Others argue the exact opposite. The forces driving change are varied, as are the approaches hospitals are taking to adapt. One of the clearest consequences of change is the recent surge in merger and acquisition activity. As a leader in the healthcare industry, executives must be prepared to lead their organization, their employees and community through this transition.
