Charted Territory
Hospitals are the conceptual fulcrum of an Accountable Care Organization, so it stands to reason that they are in the midst of buying entities in complementary sectors. We looked through our database to find mergers and acquisitions that hospitals are making outside of the hospital sector. What we found wasn’t surprising: Home Health & Hospice companies, Physician Medical Groups, and in one case, a managed care company. These entities all contribute to building an ACO. In no case did a hospital or health system acquire a company in a far-afield sector such as Medical Devices. Sometimes it’s nice to see data that confirms what you already know.

Technology Deal of the Week
Roche (OTCQZ: RHHBY) has acquired Constitution Medical Inc. for $220 million cash upfront, as well as further contingent payments depending on how well or if CMI achieves certain milestones. CMI developed a highly innovative hematology testing system, which is designed to give faster and more accurate diagnosis of blood-related diseases. CMI was created and funded by the private equity firm Warburg Pincus and members of CMI’s management team who are former Cytyc Corporation exeuctives. Warburg recently made a high-profile exit from Bausch + Lomb, which it sold to Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE: VRX) for $8.7 billion, so this deal probably feels like pocket change....Want to read more news?
