Bob Morrison, ASA BV/IA, Business Valuation Discipline Chair of the American Society of Appraisers, states, “Not all valuations are created equal. The valuation of healthcare businesses requires consideration of nuances created by industry practice and by regulations. Healthcare Valuation: The Financial Appraisal of Enterprises, Assets, and Services by Bob Cimasi provides a valuable framework for any business valuer endeavoring to value healthcare-related business interests.”

Robert Schlegel, ASA, MCBA, Past International President of the American Society of Appraisers, states, “All appraisers dealing with healthcare subjects should have this necessary handbook. Healthcare valuation has emerged into a specialized field, requiring background, discernment and work experience in order to be effective. Healthcare businesses are constantly changing – the insight provided by Mr. Cimasi’s wealth of experience is indispensable.”

Richard M. Wise, FASA, MCBA, FCBV, FRICS, CVA, FCA, CPA, CA, Former President of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators, states, “Bob Cimasi’s Healthcare Valuation — The Financial Appraisal of Enterprises, Assets, and Services, is a timely and essential resource for any professional who is retained to provide valuation services relating to the healthcare industry.

In this user-friendly authority, the author shares with readers his in-depth knowledge of the industry as well as his many years of hands-on valuation experience, in a detailed, intelligible, and cogent manner. While geared to American appraisers, the book can also serve as an important compendium for use by my colleagues in Canada as well, whether for domestic or cross-border assignments. Bob Cimasi’s book is a highly valuable addition to the appraisal profession’s body of knowledge and is a definite must read.”

Chris M. Mellen, President of Delphi Valuation Advisors, Inc. and co-author of Valuation for M&A: Building Value in Private Companies, states, “Brilliant! Bob Cimasi’s Healthcare Valuation is the definitive treatise for the complexities of valuation in the healthcare industry. This book successfully achieves its goal as both a resource and a reference, comprehensively explaining valuation theory and value drivers unique to healthcare entities in the context of healthcare reform and how we got here. It is a superb and insightful guide for healthcare finance and management professionals, as well as their professional advisors – not only appraisers, but also accountants, attorneys, bankers, and M&A advisors – and academia.”

In short this is a one stop service for anyone doing healthcare valuations.”

Howard Lewis, Executive Director, Institute of Business Appraisers, and Former National Program Manager of the IRS Engineering and Valuation Program, states, “Cimasi's Healthcare Valuation is a rare and unique asset to the community.

Robert L. Wilson, Jr., Healthcare Group Practice Area Leader, Smith Moore Leatherwood LLP, states, “It is no secret that modern healthcare in the United States, and its valuation, is extraordinarily complex. As an added difficulty, the four pillars of the healthcare industry described by Bob Cimasi (regulation, reimbursement, competition, and technology) are in such a state of flux that the shifting landscape can overwhelm even the most seasoned healthcare professionals, executives, and advisors. That is why Mr. Cimasi’s heavily researched work, Healthcare Valuation, is so invaluable. It serves as a trustworthy and definitive resource for myriad questions ranging from the tenets of valuation to the true drivers of value. I predict it will soon become required reading for anyone involved in the field.”
