Your Practice

Key Healthcare’s deep industry expertise as it relates to your practice


From small hospitals to large systems, today’s healthcare organizations need to do more with less — and to do it better. An environment of falling reimbursements and constant regulatory change calls for increased efficiencies and an optimized capital structure.

You may be seeking to grow through acquisition, to modernize your facilities or equipment, to partner with other providers, or to optimize your revenue cycle and reduce costs.

Key Healthcare takes a consultative approach to your business. We engage you in a conversation, listen to your needs, and offer holistic solutions designed to strengthen your organization and create efficiencies in your process.

We’ll develop proactive strategies to keep your organization viable, help you attract and retain high-quality staff, mitigate your risks, and provide you with the financial tools you need to deliver the best possible care for your community.

Mitigating your risk

No healthcare organization can be financially successful without taking risks. While most of these risks are ultimately financial, it’s productive to address and understand the underlying causes of various types of exposures. These can be everything from credit, capital, or revenue concerns to regulatory or reputational issues.

Key’s holistic approach helps your organization to gauge an appropriate level of various types of exposures, and effectively hedge against undesirable outcomes.

Solutions include:

  • Asset-protection trusts
  • Captive insurance companies
  • Property, casualty, life, and liability insurance
