The Aftermath of the FTC‘s Wins in ProMedica and St. Luke’s: What is the Future of Provider Mergers?

Friday, July 11, 2014
12:00 PM-1:15 PM Eastern


When it comes to challenging provider mergers, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is on a roll. So far this year it has won two big cases: the St Luke’s case in Idaho in January and the ProMedica case in Ohio in April. The agency now has gone a decade without losing a challenge to a provider merger. This roundtable discussion will address the following questions: • What does this mean for providers who are contemplating a merger or acquisition in the near future? • Are there arguments that can be made in a close case that might persuade the FTC or the courts to permit a merger? • What arguments fail to get traction and why? • What lessons can be drawn as to which mergers will pass antitrust muster and which won’t?
