This resource outlines the role of a health center board in evaluating and implementing corporate consolidation strategies such as merger, asset acquisition, and parent-subsidiary model.
In recent years, an increasing number of health centers have consolidated operations with other community providers. A health center board is critical in determining whether a corporate consolidation is consistent with the health center’s mission and long-term strategic goals. This resource describes common corporate consolidation goals, explains corporate consolidation models, examines the board’s role in evaluating corporate consolidation, and highlights key decisions that must be approved by the board.
