Mercy Health System Consolidation with Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems

Pierce Atwood represented Mercy Health System of Maine in its consolidation with Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems (EMHS). In addition to the issues involved in any large M&A transaction, including transaction structuring, drafting and negotiation of definitive documents, comprehensive due diligence, and coordination of corporate governance and organizational integration, our team has also dealt with all of the issues inherent in hospital and health system mergers, acquisitions, affiliations, and similar transactions, such as antitrust concerns, HIPAA compliance, medical and executive staff retention and consolidation, benefit plan transition, and the navigation of other relevant federal and state regulatory and licensure issues applicable to the healthcare industry.
