Beating the Odds: Controlling Risk in a Decision to Affiliate or to Go it Alone

In some ways, decisions on affiliation strategy come down to assessing the risk. Some hospitals and health systems are rushing into the arms of larger systems in an effort to strengthen their position for the future. Are they running from operating risks only to assume new risks inherent with a new partner? Are they racing toward excellence? Or both? 

As they assess the odds, hospital leaders can choose among a wide spectrum of relationships, not simply make a painful binary choice between “full independence” or “full loss of independence.” Where your institution lands on that spectrum is your call, and your assessment and management of risk can determine the smoothest landing spot. Options are optional: You can make the choice or reject them all.

This session will explore best practices for hospital and system trustees to determine what level of independence, or interdependence on that spectrum of affiliation structures will help their organization thrive. It will also address practical tools to manage the risk of each choice. Using case studies and facilitation skills gathered over years of working with hospitals and systems throughout the West and across the country, the presenter will stimulate a discussion among the attending trustees on the following topics: 

  1. The characteristics of various stops along the Spectrum of Affiliations
  2. How trustees can determine the appropriate level of affiliation, if any, for their institution’s future
  3. Approaches to examining the uncertainty of various options 
  4. Managing the inherent risk in any transaction, including the “partner risk” of an affiliation
  5. Ways to build community consensus around the hospital’s goals and course of action.

5 Key Questions for Healthcare Executives Considering a Transaction

Several commentators and consultants to the healthcare sector have asserted that the days of the freestanding community hospital are coming to a close. 

Can these fashionable doomsday predictions prompt executives, elected officials, and trustees of community hospitals to rush headlong into a transaction that may not be in the best interests of their facility or their community?

Mr. Lupica’s interactive discussion will engage the audience in an exploration of decision tools that healthcare fiduciaries can employ when considering, or resisting the pressure to enter, an affiliation or merger. The topic is organized under the 5 questions: "What, Why, When, How . . . and, only then, Who?"

His remarks will:

  • Challenge the conventional wisdom that all independent hospitals must eventually join or sell out to a hospital system or large competitor
  • Offer cautious approaches for examining options when hospital fiduciaries decide that's the right action for their institution
  • Present case studies illustrating how to engage and build consensus with community stakeholders in a sincere discussion of their goals for the hospital. 

Mr. Lupica’s talk will reflect his experiences in taking highly visible community institutions through rational conversations on options, after which his clients decided either to remain independent or to custom-build an affiliation model that allowed their hospital to reach its goals without abandoning local control of its destiny.
