Home Health & Hospice Trends in the Healthcare Industry

Berkeley Research Group (BRG) Healthcare M&A Update

Healthcare attorney John Arnold provided commentary about home health and hospice trends in the Q2 publication of the Berkeley Research Group (BRG) Healthcare M&A Update. The report explained that the overall demand for home health services in the U.S. is expected to remain strong because of continued aging of baby boomers, a preference for at-home care and pressures to reduce overall cost of care. However, home health and hospice companies continue to experience labor pressures. Mr. Arnold offered insight on the state of the market and highlighted what investors should look out for.  

"Despite higher interest rates, labor market difficulties and reimbursement challenges, the pace at which care is transitioning to the home continues to increase." he said. "The fundamentals creating the sector’s tailwinds have not changed. Investors should remain attentive to legislative and enforcement developments that will impact deals—from increased federal and state scrutiny of non-competes to increased antitrust and regulatory oversight. Even if these changes do not impact deal value, they may make transactions more expensive without proactive planning and filing notices early in the timeline."
