As health care organizations continue to grow, expanding key access points in markets where the organization does not have a physical presence could be a critical strategic consideration moving forward.

SSAs in health care involve one party who makes payments to another party for the right to utilize owned or leased medical office space (e.g., a hospital utilizing medical office space owned or leased by a medical group). SSAs can be an efficient way to provide better access to care within communities and create alignment with a broader cohort of providers, and many health care entities can establish and operate relatively simple and cost-effective SSAs.
