Healthcare Staffing M&A Surges Amid Substantial Labor Shortage

Capstone Partners released its November 2021 Healthcare Staffing Industry Update, reporting that clinician burnout coupled with the resurgence of COVID-19 and Delta variant cases in the summer stressed the capacity of many healthcare providers, with those located in high infection regions experiencing the most significant strain on operations.
