Physician Services


Practice Sale

When selling a physician practice, physician groups need an experienced financial advisor providing insight on the ins-and-outs of the issues that come up during a sale.

  • Do you need your own practice valuation to serve as a benchmark?
  • How important is the hospital’s choice of a valuation firm how should you influence it?
  • What about the pitfalls of post-sale compensation — which is often more important than the sales price?
  • “Unwind” provisions and restrictive covenants must be carefully negotiated to assure they are workable if everything doesn’t work out.
  • Post-sale issues including distribution of proceeds, staff retention and operations/management are often overlook.

Delta’s experience in working with both physicians and hospitals assures you maximize the value of your practice, your post-sale compensation and your post-sale satisfaction.

Reestablishing Private Practice

Physicians concluding that hospital employment isn’t for them and considering a return to private practice often don’t know where to start. Delta wrote the guidebook on returning to private practice. Our services include examination of the following:

  • What are the legal barriers? Is a separation possible?
  • Where is your hospital employer in its employment cycle? This insight can make separation possible even where legal barriers exist.
  • Valuation services allowing you to “sanity test” the value the hospital assigns to your repurchasing practice assets.
  • A comprehensive feasibility is a key component, answering threshold questions such as startup costs, sources of capital financing, financial projections and projected physician income.
  • Management recruiting and operational startup.
