Helping Expand Shreveport Medical Center’s Resources to Regional Patients


Transaction Type:

Mergers & Acquisitions

Transaction Highlights

SC&H Capital served as a financial advisor to Louisiana State University’s Health Sciences Center at Shreveport (LSUHSC-S) through its privatization deal in Louisiana.

In light of provisions within the Affordable Care Act, SC&H Capital helped LSUHSC-S enter into a public-private partnership with the Biomedical Research Foundation of Northwest Louisiana (BRF), a knowledge-based economic development initiative.

SC&H Capital also created a strategic plan with management and the acquirers for areas of potential increased revenues and identifiable cost saving opportunities under a new structure. This helped the hospital maintain operations and fund staff through new payment mechanisms and accelerated processes.

Shreveport Medical Center is one of two acute care hospitals, including the E.A. Conway Medical Center, for which SC&H Capital provided strategic planning for a public-private partnership.
