Josh was extremely knowledgeable about the acquisition process, identifying a number of critical issues early in our discussions. He provides constant communication and is swift to recommend a change of course when it is appropriate.

Richard L. Jones, Jr.

President and CEO
Abington Memorial Hospital

“Mr. Josh Nemzoff, of Nemzoff and Company, served as the lead in the acquisition of a
chain of not-for-profit hospitals by the University of Florida and its
Shands Hospital. He was instrumental in leading our preparations and
understanding of the market in which we were in a bidding competition with
Columbia/HCA and was an aggressive and productive leader of our negotiating
team in putting together our final negotiation. He is a hard and aggressive
bargainer and placed us in a position in which our Board had great
confidence in the outcome. His availability and skill at communication added
to the confidence that the organization had in the entire process.”

Affairs and
Chairman, Shands Hospital Board of Directors

“One of the things most striking about Josh was his capacity to be relative at times of
seeming impasse. More than once we believed that the negotiations would fail
because of an inability to achieve understanding on a particular issue.
Frequently, it was Josh who was able to reframe the question in a way that
each side could see their way to a compromise. Josh has a reputation for
being direct and it is certainly well deserved.”

“Mr. Nemzoff brought great experience and negotiating skill to the process.  I am not confident that we would
have been able to complete the transaction without the skills and experience
that he and his colleagues brought to the process.  He helped build a
successful team of internal and external participants.”

“Mr. Nemzoff worked with Alleghany Regional Hospital and its Board of Directors during
the significant time of considering the sale of the hospital.  Mr.
Nemzoff served as Leader of the Project Team responsible for negotiating
with Columbia/HCA Healthcare Corporation for the sale of the hospital. I
would recommend without hesitation the services of Mr. Nemzoff and his firm.
It has been a pleasure to work with him and I appreciate his efforts and
expertise in assisting the hospital with this project.”

options. He kept the board fully informed and led us through an intense
process of examination. Mr. Nemzoff is to be recognized and commended for
his thorough examination of the situation facing our hospital and for his
innovation and creative ideas that led to a successful conclusion.”

Chairman
Dakota Hospital
Board of Directors

“To attain our goal, which was best for the community and the institution, it turned out that a merger was better than
an acquisition.  Mr. Nemzoff and his company would have earned a great
deal more money had the institution been sold.  Instead he pointed out
the differences and opted to follow the path which was best for his client
and meant less money for his company.”

“Josh is a very accomplished negotiator and a shrewd financial analyst.  He has the uncanny ability to zero in on
the key points of the deal and know when to hold his cards and when to lay
them down.”

Duane K. Rossmann
Chief Executive Officer
Medical Center Hospital
Conroe, Texas

“During the course of this engagement, Josh and I enjoyed and outstanding working
relationship. He is not afraid to stand up and defend his position. He also
did not hesitate to tell us when this acquisition was not a good deal for
our hospital. Although his firm at the time, Ernst and Young, would have
made a substantial fee if the acquisition was pursued, I was particularly
impressed by Josh’s attitude of giving the best advice to his client
regardless of the impact of his fees.  Should the opportunity for
similar negotiations present itself again, I would not hesitate to use Mr.
Nemzoff and I would recommend him to any hospital contemplating the merger
or acquisition/transaction.”

Edward M. Dinan
President/CEO
Sacred Heart Hospital


“Mr. Nemzoff’s efforts were instrumental in our finding a buyer for a
facility which was well located but suffered physician relation problems.
He also persevered well into the nights as closing negotiations with Richard
Scott drug on for three very long days.  In the end, Mr. Nemzoff’s
insights into the market, the desires of the buyer and needs of the seller
were well meshed into a transaction that satisfied both parties.”

“He [Josh] is well-known throughout the industry and his efforts and
accomplishments speak for themselves.  I have always considered Josh a
friend as well as an adversary, as he possesses the unique qualities of an
individual with great skills and compassion for his fellow man.  In
short, he may beat you up and kick you out the door through the negotiation
process, but at least he is kind enough at the end of the day to come over,
pick you up and brush you off before sending you on your way.”
