Video: Causes & Consequences of Selling a Physician Practice

Welcome to Staff Care's Locum Tenens Video Series, where a panel of seasoned doctors talk about the issues facing today's health workforce (and doctors in particular). Check out other locum videos here.

After years of hard work establishing a practice, why do many physicians eventually decide to sell their small practice to a larger health system — and what impact does it ultimately have on them, and on their careers?

"I've seen various stages of this happen," says Texas-based radiologist Dr. Andrea Lundell video, "where the particular practice is in the process of becoming incorporated into a different business or hospital."

As part of our panel of seasoned locum tenens doctors, Dr. Lundell discusses the process, impact and consequences of incorporating one's physician practice into a larger hospital system — in the context of physician autonomy, power, voice, and other factors.
