Good Shepherd Health System (GSHS), a two-hospital nonprofit community health system based in Longview, TX, has announced its intention to explore a potential strategic partnership. Juniper Advisory will assist the Board of Directors and executive leadership team on a formalized exploration of potential partners and partnership structures so that GSHS may continue to provide high-quality health services in the communities that it serves.
Recent studies indicate that approximately 85% of nonprofit health systems nationwide are exploring their ability to remain independent in today’s evolving healthcare environment. Recognizing the changing business environment for hospitals, GSHS has elected to explore its strategic alternatives in order to continue delivering on its mission as a community-based health system.
