We see a steady pace in the volume of deals for the health services sectors from the first to second quarters with 143 and 138 announced deals (281 total deals), respectively. This volume is also consistent on a year to date basis with 2013 and its 289 announced deals. However, we also note that on a quarterly basis, the second quarter of 2014’s deal volume (138 deals) has declined almost 13% from the same period in 2013 (158 deals).
