Healthcare Services | First Quarter 2023
May 2023 – This issue of SOLIConnect reports that healthcare M&A transaction volume declined in Q1 2023 with approximately 600 deals, down 6% from Q4 2022 and down 20% from Q1 2022, as growing labor costs, inflation and high-interest rates have stifled deal activity. M&A activity was led by the physician medical groups sector (PMG) with 135 transactions, a decline of 13% compared with Q4 2022, but in line with the same period a year prior.
