New NYLJ Article, "Antitrust Enforcers Target Hospital Consolidations"


Section Chair Frank Serbaroli, with the New York office of Greenberg Traurig, writes a regular "Expert Analysis" column for the New York Law Journal. The latest article, "Antitrust Enforcers Target Hospital Consolidations," appears in the May 24, 2011 edition of the Journal:

Many hospitals--both for-profit and not-forprofit-- have been consolidating into regional systems. Their rationale has been that such consolidations can bring about cost efficiencies,increased access to medical services for their communities, improved quality of care, and lower prices. Until recently, there have been relatively few antitrust challenges to hospital mergers. For a time in the late 1990s the federal government's challenges to hospital mergers were largely unsuccessful. But things have changed, and hospitals should take careful note of some important recent cases where mergers have been challenged.
