About this Episode

Corporate entities like health plans, retail companies, and PE firms have aggregated large, diverse portfolios of care delivery assets over the past decade – with one notable exception: no one was buying hospitals.

But in January, venture capital firm General Catalyst bucked that trend and announced its intent to acquire Summa Health, a 3-hospital health system in northeastern Ohio. What are they thinking? And what could this mean for the industry?

In this episode, host Rachel (Rae) Woods and co-host Abby Burns invite Advisory Board's health system expert Vidal Seegobin to unpack the details of the story, interpret General Catalyst's ambition, and share what they'll be watching in the coming months.
