Growth & Expansion:
UPSIDE POTENTIAL – The Company’s upside potential includes joining more insurance payer networks, expanding the offerings of ancillary services, and direct contracting with employers.
As insurance carriers and large employers increasingly understand the value in the birth center model of care and include birth centers in their networks and benefits plans, the number of women choosing a birth center may grow exponentially.
There is also a trend in the U.S. for insurance carriers and employers to focus on improving the quality of primary care and reducing hospital stays, for which birth centers are ideal candidates. Birth centers excel in providing patient-centered women’s care from puberty to beyond menopause. Birth centers also offer exceptional community and social support for families, and they are hubs for referrals to higher levels of care.
This is a great opportunity for a midwife, physician, or hospital/health system as a stand-alone business, add-on to an existing practice, and/or referral source to higher levels of care.
