Panel: Sector focus – healthcare and hospitals

According to Debtwire's Restructuring Database, healthcare bankruptcy filings are considerably higher this year, reaching 30 filings in the first 6 months of 2023 compared to 46 in the full year 2022. A report by Gibbins Advisors cites the tailwinds affecting the sector as high interest rates (which are impacting borrowing cash flow and refinancing ability), labour and supply cost pressures, margin squeezes, the shift from inpatient to outpatient care in community settings post COVID-19 and the unwinding of Medicaid Continuous Enrolment. Experts expect 2023 and beyond to see a record number of healthcare bankruptcies. Panellists will discuss:   

  • Why are so many healthcare Chapter 11 cases in “free fall”?
  • Which regulatory and legislative updates will impact restructurings in the healthcare market?
  • How are related service providers being affected by the increase in bankruptcies in the sector, such as patient management systems?
