Following is an excerpt:

Health-care mergers and acquisitions continued to surge in October, with information technology and pharmaceuticals deals leading the way. …

Life Sciences, Health IT

The life sciences, medical device, and health-care IT sectors totaled more than 100 deals in October, “demonstrating a continued heightened focus on pursuing treatments and cures for diseases (COVID and beyond), and cost-efficiency in care more generally through technological advances,” Gary Herschman, a member of Epstein Becker Green’s Newark, N.J., office, said. …

Hospital, Physician Practice Consolidation

Hospital consolidation is becoming more active following a slowdown due to the pandemic, Anjana Patel, a member of Epstein Becker Green’s Newark office, said. Hospital/health systems transactions totaled 14 in October and 91 year-to-date.

Hospital consolidations are “expected to increase substantially over the next 6-12 months as smaller independent hospitals seek to partner with larger hospital systems to benefit from their robust infrastructure and considerable capital,” Patel said.
