The post-acute sector is a constantly evolving and growing sector that includes home health, hospice, palliative care, skilled nursing, hospital at home and inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation facilities. Joint venture activity and mergers and acquisitions have grown to unprecedented levels in recent years. This is due to the stable reimbursement environment Medicare provides, the strong demographic trends for the post-acute industry, and the lifting of certificate of need (“CON”) moratoria in key states.
