Building a Hospital Joint VentureThis is the third and final article in a series examining the uses of health system joint ventures, the process of developing a joint venture, and expected trends related to these transactions.

In the first two articles, we looked back into the history of joint ventures (JVs), the factors leading to their emergence, and the potential benefits of a JV to a non-profit hospital or health system. We then looked at emerging trends in JVs and speculated as to the future directions that these models could follow to solve for rapidly evolving healthcare challenges. In this article, we will explore the “nuts and bolts” of considering and creating a hospital JV, which will allow us to bring the hypothetical and theoretical into the practical. If you are a hospital or health system considering forming a JV, there are some important factors to think through before embarking on this complex process.
