12 Anesthesia Group Mergers in 2014 to Know

Written by Ellie Rizzo | June 05, 2014

Anesthesia group mergers and acquisitions have been on the rise in 2014, due to changes in the healthcare system and the uncertain healthcare environment.

For larger organizations, forging partnerships allows more leverage with payers and the ability to capture data on outcomes and costs associated with anesthesia care.

The following are anesthesia mergers that have occurred so far in 2014 as reported on Becker's ASC Review.
