Ambulatory care services represent a growing portion of healthcare revenues, competition, development efforts, and transactions.  To compete effectively, hospitals, health systems, and integrated networks require a geographically distributed set of low-cost, convenient access points.  Physician groups and other  specialty providers seek growth opportunities, affiliation options, and exit strategies.  Success in the ambulatory care arena involves a comprehensive understanding of operations, finance, strategy, and compliance to deliver high-quality care that is both effective and sustainable.
