Hospital Mergers and Acquisitions: No Improvement in Health Outcomes

Hospital consolidations have long been associated with increased healthcare costs for patients. But a new study has found that the quality of care also declines after a hospital acquisition.

Published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, the “Changes in Quality of Care After Hospital Mergers and Acquisitions” study tracked 246 hospitals that were acquired between 2009 and 2013, with researchers focusing on readmission rates and patient experience.

The Study Found:

  • The quality of care declines at hospitals after a merger.
  • More hospitals are merging as a way to share costs, but that often doesn’t lead to better health outcomes.
  • It’s possible that care may decline as hospitals that merged face less competition.
