Healthcare Valuation & Advisory

The experts of Sigma Valuation Consulting have extensive experience serving healthcare providers in operational and valuation consulting capacities. Having valued over 300 healthcare businesses, including medical practices, dental practices, hospitals and ancillary facilities, we are regularly retained to value medical practices and healthcare businesses, and provide the highest levels of proficiency and insight.

As the delivery of healthcare services in the United States continues to evolve, providers of medical services are faced with a myriad of challenges and opportunities.  Rising costs and declining reimbursements have created pressures across the entire spectrum of the healthcare industry.  Under such pressure, healthcare providers often search for new opportunities through mergers, cost sharing agreements, and other creative arrangements that enable them to participate in the financial achievements of the facilities providing treatment to their patients.  To accomplish this, physicians must navigate the world of government regulation within the industry, such as the Federal Medicare Anti-Kickback Statute, the Stark Laws, IRS prohibitions on private inurement, and individual state regulatory requirements.

Sigma Valuation Consulting performs a broad array of valuation and economic consulting services for the healthcare industry.  These services are provided to assist in appropriately structuring and pricing transactions, compensation, regulatory compliance, litigation support and expert testimony.
