Bates White expert retained to provide testimony in FTC's successful block of healthcare merger

Kevin Pflum was retained by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to provide expert testimony on the likely competitive effects of HCA Healthcare’s proposed acquisition of Steward Health Care’s five Utah hospitals. The FTC authorized an administrative complaint and a suit in federal court to block the proposed merger, alleging the deal would lead to higher prices and lower quality of care in the region surrounding Salt Lake City. HCA Healthcare and Steward Health Care abandoned the proposed deal shortly thereafter.
