Business Valuation

 Leading Business Valuation Services for Healthcare Organizations

HealthCare Appraisers has offered business valuation services since its founding in 2000. Our dedicated business valuation team hails from a wide range of financial, accounting, healthcare operations, and valuation backgrounds and collectively holds numerous credentials from the CFA Institute, American Society of Appraisers, and National Society of Certified Valuators and Analysts, among others. Our refined approaches to business valuation consider the unique aspects of each individual engagement and all potential regulatory implications of each business transaction, including, but not limited to, those related to the Stark Law, Anti-Kickback Statute, and IRS regulations. The result: objective, independent, and defensible FMV opinions.

With our exclusive commitment to the healthcare industry, unmatched professional experience, and consistently-applied approaches to valuation, we have a thorough understanding of all types of business arrangements, including those involving ambulatory surgery centers, physician practices, hospitals, health systems, and more.

 Ambulatory Surgery Center Valuation

While valuation principles remain constant, the underlying factors to be taken into consideration should differ based on the type of healthcare entity to be valued. With a team of highly-credentialed and experienced healthcare valuation experts, HealthCare Appraisers understands the intricacies that can drive value and are yet permissible considerations under current, applicable healthcare laws and regulations. For example, when valuing an ambulatory surgery center (“ASC”), we may consider payer mix, specialty and case mix, and local competition and barriers to entry, including any Certificate of Need requirements.

Recognizing that many of our clients continually employ an aggressive growth strategy founded upon ASC investment, HealthCare Appraisers provides an invaluable resource of information related to ASC activity, by way of our annual ASC Valuation Survey. In publication since 2003, HealthCare Appraisers’ annual ASC Valuation Survey provides timely insights into the trends and forces shaping the ASC industry.

2019 ASC Valuation Survey

The survey contains valuable insights into ASC valuation multiples, transaction trends, and other operating metrics. Respondents collectively own or manage more than 1,000 ASCs across the U.S., representing approximately 20 percent of the ASC market. 

2019 ASC Benchmarking Survey

We collaborated with members of the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA) to provide an expanded opportunity for participation. We surveyed surgery centers of various sizes and specialty case mixes, with respondents from 118 surgery centers.
