Wyoming hospital rejects RegionalCare bid

County-owned Cheyenne Regional Hospital in Wyoming has rejected RegionalCare Hospital Partners' unsolicited takeover offer. In March, Brentwood-based RegionalCare offered $80 million to lease and operate the facility and $100 million in new construction.

Last week officials at the hospital said they are not considering any offers to buy the facility and, instead, they are entering a new "alignment process" to focus on solidifying the hospital's future.

Competitors 'laid down their spears' for merger

Cogent Healthcare yesterday announced a merger with like-sized Ohio-based Hospitalists Management Group, a transaction that creates the largest privately held hospitalist company in the country.

The deal, company executives say, fuses former competitors in order to create a usiness that can better capture the ballooning demand for their services.

“Each of us had to kind of lay our spears down and really talk about how we could bring these two highly compatible cultures together,” said Stephen Houff, CEO of the new Cogent-HMG, of the deal-making process.

Previously, Cogent and HMG were competing in the mid-sized hospital market, though each had a focus that stretched in another direction — Cogent targeting larger and HMG going after smaller providers. As a combined company, the two can pursue the entire market at a time when health care providers of all sizes are thinking about how they can become part of integrated care networks (accountable care organizations) to meet the demands of a post-health care reform industry. That’s important, according to chairman Gene Fleming, because many hospitals are considering outsourced hospitalist partners as part of their ACO strategies.

“We’re still on the very front end of meeting the demand in the marketplace,” Fleming said. “This gives us a much bigger platform from which to address that market.”
