02 May New Book Published
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 2, 2016 (Phoenix, MD)
Greenbranch Publishing announces publication of the third edition of the indispensable guide for the growing number of physicians who are considering selling or merging their practices: Time to Sell? Guide to Selling a Physician Practice, Value, Options, Alternatives, 3rd Edition, by Randy Bauman of Delta Health Care.
Tired of struggling with falling reimbursements and rising costs and complexity, physicians are selling their practices to hospitals at a feverish pace. But selling isn’t always a slam-dunk solution. In fact, physicians may find that the same problems that prompted them to sell their practice to the hospital – regulatory headaches, stagnant income, long hours – continue to frustrate them as hospital employees.
In this new and expanded edition of Time to Sell?, veteran practice consultant Randy Bauman helps physicians and practice administrators examine their own selling scenario – from how much the practice is worth to the operational, deal-making, and legal issues that would shape the sale. He helps physicians find the right answers and make the best deals. Should the time not be right for a sale, Bauman also explores alternative options for not selling, including ways to make the existing practice more profitable, efficient, and satisfying.
NEW FEATURES FOR THE THIRD EDITION
Bauman’s new guide bridges this gap for physicians, giving them practical tools for finding the right fit – both personally and financially.
For example, Time to Sell? helps physicians understand why some physicians groups to command surprisingly high rates – and then use those insights into everything from “curb appeal” to revenue streams as the basis for developing their own pricing strategy. It also helps them recognize when selling the practice isn’t going to be the right fit. Instead, Bauman offers a variety of options physicians can use immediately to improve the financial rewards and personal satisfaction they enjoy in their existing practice.
If selling to a hospital is the right decision, Time to Sell? Guide to Selling a Physician Practice walks physicians through each step. A particular strength of the book is Bauman’s ability to simplify not only the process, but the legal and financial considerations along the way.
Greenbranch Publishing President Nancy Collins says the book is also “extremely physician friendly in the way it distills each chapter into takeaway points and ready-to-use worksheets.” Noting that while it’s short and easy to read, this one guide “sees the physician through every consideration, strategy, and option for selling a practice to a hospital.”
