West Palm Beach | Florida | 2019 | Market Overview (Event Driven)

Publish date: February 2019

Baptist Health South Florida continues to shake up the West Palm Beach market. With BHSF’s entry into the market, the two last independent hospitals may feel greater pressure to join the nonprofit integrated delivery network or be acquired by one of the two for-profits. As Palm Beach coalesces into three healthcare ecosystems, expect physicians to feel greater pressure to join the larger organizations, or work with payers to develop narrower provider networks. These more innovative models could encourage more value-based care in the market.
