Even before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the healthcare industry was facing myriad financial and economic pressures, including increasing operational costs, lower reimbursement from government and commercial payors, significant consolidation of stand-alone providers across a range of healthcare sectors, and a geographical imbalance in healthcare services caused by the failures of many rural and small community hospitals. What does the industry look like as of September 2020? What has been the impact of COVID-19 on the different sectors of the industry? Which types of healthcare provider organizations will thrive, survive, or fall by the wayside? Panelists representing a geographical cross-section of the United States will provide a brief discussion on the status of various sectors from the viewpoints of management, private equity, counsel, and investment banker.
