THE TRUSTED TRANSITION PROCESS

Clear. Consistent. Complete.

While there are countless factors to consider when it comes to buying and selling veterinary hospitals, one of the most important is what happens during the transition. These types of transactions are not only about the veterinarians doing the selling and the veterinarians doing the buying. It also affects a building full of employees and a long list of veterinary patients that would rather not see any major interruptions in their schedules.

To help with your veterinary transition, DVMmatch has put into place what we call the Trusted Transition Process. This process is designed to ensure that even as a hospital undertakes a change in ownership, the employees at that hospital can still count on a paycheck. All the patients with forthcoming appointments can count on the new owner of the hospital to honor their calendars.

There are many different aspects to the Trusted Transition Process, each of which is designed to make sure the incoming veterinarian can pick up where the outgoing veterinarian left off. This can involve DVMmatch helping a new veterinarian visualize what they want for themselves and their hospital moving forward, but it also involves finding the best match possible for those buying veterinary hospitals for sale. It even makes sure that current employees don’t see any disruption in their benefits as the hospital turns over to ownership. In a nutshell, the Trusted Transition Process exists so only the buyer and seller notice major changes. For everyone else, the transition should be as seamless as possible.
