UnitedHealth might turn suitor for Tenet’s Conifer unit

UnitedHealth Group (UNH), a diversified healthcare company, has been named as a possible suitor in the sale of Tenet Healthcare’s (THC) Conifer unit. If a deal takes place between the two firms, analysts expect Tenet to value its wholly owned operating subsidiary, Conifer Health Solutions to about $2 billion.

In 2017, Tenet — under the pressure of its largest shareholder Glenview Capital Management — put its healthcare management subsidiary Conifer up for sale. In 2017, Confier accounted for 8% of the total sales. The sale of Conifer is a part of the company’s larger plan of restructuring that includes cutting workforce, divesting hospitals, breaking business segments and cut cost by $100 million by the end of this year.

According to the latest reports by the Wall Street Journal, the insurance giant is one of the companies that is aiming to acquire Tenet’s Conifer unit. There are no details on the other potential suitors. However, there is no certainty that the deal between UnitedHealth and Tenet will be consummated. If it does, Conifer would be a part of UnitedHealth’s fastest growing business Optum.
