2019 Healthcare Investment Diagnostic

Observations from Leading Healthcare Systems and Hospitals

The second annual GSAM Healthcare Investment Diagnostic highlights the varied approaches and innovative practices that healthcare systems and hospitals pursue. We examine the degree to which investment strategy has become integral to organizational strategy.

Key Takeaways

  • Scale: A strong mergers and acquisition (M&A) environment persists as healthcare organizations focus on getting closer to the patient. As organizational strategy evolves, systems continue to assess how investment strategy and governance practices can support their missions. 
  • Alignment: Hospitals continue to diversify their business lines as they navigate industry challenges and competitive forces. They are increasingly relying on their investment portfolio by seeking alignment through strategies that take advantage of their credit rating, operating margins and available liquidity as they pursue investment opportunities in capital markets.
  • Risk Management: Risk management is a key area of focus and a multi-dimensional effort that encompasses the broad enterprise, credit rating, investments, pension, insurance and liquidity among other areas. While many evaluate and define risk parameters, respondents indicate that they communicate less to stakeholders about their risk position and the implementation of their investment strategy.
