The Affordable Care Act should continue to drive consolidation, particularly for smaller hospitals. However, there's another important angle to this transaction. Blackstone still owns 38% of Vanguard and this transaction allows them to monetize their position at a premium. Otherwise they'd be faced with a series of secondary offerings at unpredictable prices. A good deal for them.
