LENOIR MEMORIAL HOSPITAL LAUNCHES SEARCH FOR STRATEGIC PARTNER

Posted On: December 04 2013

Kinston. NC—(December 4, 2013)— Lenoir Memorial Hospital officials today announced the launch of a process to search for a strategic partnership with another hospital, health system or hospital company with the goal to further strengthen and enhance healthcare services and better meet the needs of the community for the long term.  Recently, Lenoir Memorial engaged an outside hospital consulting firm that spent a year learning about the organization, the way it operates, its finances and its culture. The firm conducted studies inside the hospital and in the community to understand what Lenoir Memorial is today – and what it can be in the future. At the end of its work, the firm found that in order to continue the 100-year legacy of excellent, high-quality care in the future, the hospital must consider partnering with another organization.  “For a century, Lenoir Memorial has been a trusted, essential care provider for patients in Lenoir County and the surrounding region. We are a strong and profitable organization today, but the world of healthcare delivery is changing, so we are taking proactive steps to ensure continued growth and success to protect access to care close to home,” said Gary Black, president and CEO of Lenoir Memorial Hospital.  The Lenoir Memorial Board is directing the partner review process with the assistance of Juniper Advisory, a Chicago-based financial advisory firm. The firm is a leading national transaction advisor to nonprofit community hospitals on partnerships in an era of accelerating consolidation.  The systematic approach offered by Juniper will make certain that all options and types of partnerships are considered and that Lenoir Memorial’s opportunities are fully understood.  The Board is in the process of generating several objectives that will guide its selection of a partner. These criteria will be identified and discussed by the Board, then finalized over the next several months.  Confidential discussions with a number of potential partners will begin in spring 2014, with the process expected to take 12-21 months to complete once those discussions have begun, as a variety of partnership models will be explored.  “We recognize that the way healthcare is provided today – where it is offered, how it is paid for, how it is measured – is changing dramatically,” said Ray Collier, chairman of the Lenoir Memorial Board of Directors. “Reimbursement for care is declining, the care itself is shifting to more convenient outpatient settings, and more emphasis is being placed on keeping people healthy, not just treating them when they are sick. Hospitals and health systems, as well as physicians, are partnering in order to meet these new demands.”  “We believe now, when Lenoir Memorial is financially strong, is the right time to look for a strategic partner,” continued Collier. “We can evaluate our choices from a position of strength and allow ourselves time to conduct a thoughtful and thorough review on our own terms.”
