"Merger-mania" continues to be the name of the game in the healthcare industry. 

Healthcare’s thirst for wheeling and dealing has yet to be slaked, though some companies are trying out new approaches to traditional mergers and acquisitions by trying “strategic” partnerships that allow two organizations to maintain some level of independence while also growing together.
