Buy A Practice
Why Buy An Established Healthcare Facility?
One of the greatest benefits of purchasing an established Health Care Facility is that you can avoid the “Waiting Period” and possibly enjoy the immediate cash flow from existing operations.
Be cognizant that having an ample amount of cash flow for a new business, healthcare facility, practice…, can take months. Sometimes this is longer than you can sustain your operational
Be potentially prepared for an unknown ‘attrition’.
If you need a loan for your Acquisition have ProMed Financial obtain Working Capital in your loan (especially if you see any signs of negative cash flows).
*Note that our specialized, Acquisition Loan Products – often times have the capability of adding on Working Capital to your loan request AND additional equipment, if needed.
Loans, for that matter, are more readily available for an acquisition comparatively to a start-up. A history of revenues from the previous owner will assure the stability needed for loan approval and timely loan payments.
Often times our listings have been pre-qualified, based on the Cash Flow, to be able to support the corresponding loan payment.
WHILE THERE ARE MANY CONSIDERATIONS AND WE ALWAYS SUGGEST CONFERRING WITH LICENSED PROFESSIONALS
(Attorneys, CPA’s…), HERE ARE SOME OTHER POTENTIAL CONSIDERATIONS:
Don’t underestimate the value of a working system with software programs in place as well as administrative systems including personnel and predefined responsibilities. Some new business owners struggle for years perfecting their operating systems. You may be able to improve it, but at least there will be a process you can adopt from day one.
It can take months or years to find and train even one employee. There is, possibly, an unrealistic fear from buyers that staff will abandon them after they purchase. The reality is that employees often respond with enthusiasm to a new owner’s arrival. They may be eager to tell a new owner their ideas for improvement that were perhaps ignored by a previous owner that was “stuck in his or her ways”.
Good staff may see a new owner as an exciting opportunity for a fresh start and growth.
The Seller will be there based upon a mutually agreeable time period to ensure that the business continues as a
matter of pride, and will be a fountain of wisdom and advice (even though you may reject some of it). They will know the answers to questions you forgot to ask during the due diligence period, as well as ones you would only formulate after years of working experience.
