Mergers can be an exciting period, which can lead to increased revenue and benefits for all parties involved in the transition. Choosing to combine two medical institutions may appear simple at first glance, however, it’s a complicated endeavor that involves numerous pitfalls. The existing leadership of both companies has a responsibility to both patients and staff in that they must also benefit.
Every business has a unique personality, as do the employees that perform the labor. Each organization has a different style of leadership and decision-making. It’s difficult to combine these two concepts. Managed poorly, this can lead to conflict and dissatisfaction among the staff and financial difficulties caused by addressing them.
