NORWALK, CT – June 4, 2013 – Irving Levin Associates, Inc. will be hosting an important webcast to address buying, selling and valuing Physician Medical Groups on Thursday, June 20, 2013. Physician medical group acquirers have historically been specialized physician practice management companies, or PPMs, that target specific medical group practices (anesthesiology, hospitalist, orthopedics and radiology, to name a few). Recently, hospital systems have become active in this market as buyers, as they build up a framework for the accountable care organizations (ACOs) prescribed by the Affordable Care Act.

The moderator of the webcast, Aytan Dahukey, Counsel, Corporate Practice Group, Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton, will pose topical questions including: What drives this market? When should you buy or sell? Who’s buying what? What influences the valuation of physician medical groups? How is the cost of infrastructure, IT, etc. affecting consolidation? How does pricing compare to the previous year(s)?

Our hand-selected panel of experts will address these issues and answer any pressing questions the audience chooses to submit. Our experts include: Bill Gil, President and Chief Executive Officer, Facey Medical Foundation; Kenneth Hawkins, Senior VP, Acquisitions & Development, Community Health Systems; Jason Ruchaber, Partner, HealthCare Appraisers, Inc.; and Will Tao, Senior Associate, Healthcare Mergers & Acquisitions, Provident Healthcare Partners, LLC.

Publisher and Partner of Irving Levin Associates, Inc., Eleanor Meredith, invites you to take part in this can’t-miss webcast. Find out how the market is changing to adjust to the new model(s) of health care.

This webcast is expected to generate a stimulating discussion.
