Consolidation in the Medical Care Marketplace,A Case Study from Massachusetts
In: Mergers and Productivity
AbstractThis paper examines consolidation in the Massachusetts hospital market. We find that consolidation is driven primarily by a large decline in the demand for hospital beds, resulting from increased enrollment in managed care and technological changes. The drive to consolidate appears through three primary forces: consolidation for closure; consolidation for economies of scale; and consolidation for network creation.
