The article discusses the increasingly confusing features of hospital acquisitions by tax-exempt and investor-owned groups. It raises the issue of the converging of attributes of the two subsectors of the hospital industry, including the typical straight-cash acquisitions by investor-owned companies, and mergers with other tax-exempt providers by tax-exempt systems. Increasingly, however, both subsectors are trying to make their offers more appealing.
