Antitrust Issues in Hospital Acquisitions of Physician Practices - Insights From FTC v. St. Luke’s Health System

Please join Hogan Lovells for a complimentary webinar focusing on the antitrust issues that arise when hospitals acquire physician practices, including lessons from the recent U.S. District Court decision in the challenge to St. Luke’s Health System’s acquisition of the Saltzer Medical Group in Nampa, ID.

The webinar will address

  • antitrust issues raised by hospital acquisitions of physician groups;
  • factors that increase or reduce the likelihood of an investigation or challenge from government enforcers or private claimants;
  • remedies that have been imposed in recent hospital-physician enforcement actions; and
  • implications of the U.S. District Court decision in St. Luke's

Hospitals are increasingly considering whether to employ, contract with, or otherwise affiliate with physicians to meet the challenges of the evolving healthcare environment, and these relationships are attracting increased scrutiny under the antitrust laws. We hope you can join this webinar which will review the underlying antitrust issues and implications of the St. Luke's decision.
