The anesthesia mergers and acquisitions market has seen a lot of action over the past year, according to a report in The Deal Pipeline.
The anesthesia space is consolidating quickly, according to Dougherty & Co. analyst Brooks O’Neil, and large practice management companies are experiencing competition for acquiring anesthesiology groups. Continental Anesthesia, a private equity-backed company, plans to expand its practice to 150 physicians.
Mednax and Team Health are also actively acquiring small practices and several deals have been announced during the second half of 2013. Private Equity firms are also interested in the anesthesia space, according to the report.
