Thanks to the support of our clients and colleagues, BFMV has seen tremendous growth since 2016, our inaugural year. To date, we have provided valuation services to clients with operations in 33 states, covering 23 segments of the healthcare industry. We have also completed fair market value compensation opinions for physicians in 58 medical specialties.
In 2018, our physician compensation work was focused heavily on hospital-based physicians, including anesthesiologists, emergency department physicians, hospitalists, and radiologists. In addition to working with many medical groups and hospitals around the country, we also worked with hospices and other types of providers, providing physician compensation philosophies and fair market value reviews for those organizations.
In the business valuation arena, we saw increased demand for ACO, ASC, MSO, imaging center, and urgent care valuations. Buy-ins, buy-outs, mergers and acquisitions were the most common reasons our clients turned to us for valuation services.
In addition to our compensation and business valuation work, we expanded our reach in 2018 by speaking to national audiences on valuation issues in the healthcare industry and developing original content for our blog at buckheadfmv.com. The graphic below includes a list of blog material and speaking invitations for the year.
In 2019, we will continue to build on our strong foundation. We invite you to visit our website at buckheadfmv.com to view the results of primary research we are conducting on various physician compensation and business valuation topics. And, we welcome any questions you may have regarding our valuation services.
