NAPA, FOAA Anesthesia Services Announce Merger
"We are very excited about the merger for a number of reasons. FOAA is a leading quality anesthesia practice in the mid-Atlantic region. Through this new partnership, our organization will be able to expand our reach in that geography," says John Di Capua, MD, CEO of NAPA. "Collectively, we are working on finding new and innovative ways of utilizing our mass to continually re-invent our data-driven, patient-centric infrastructure. Examples of this include creating a new digital anesthesia record focused on data and quality. We are also investing in a physician director of quality and research and full-time physicians dedicated to education and risk management. This is of tremendous value from a quality perspective and it helps expand our commitment to improve outcomes. Merging with a company like FOAA enables us to reach the size and scale necessary to create such infrastructure."
North American Partners in Anesthesia is a single specialty anesthesia management company. FOAA Anesthesia Services provides anesthesia practice management and anesthesia services for healthcare facilities. FOAA will serve as NAPA's central hub in that region.
"We are undertaking a healthy integration of the two groups," says Dr. Di Capua. "The two companies represent a similar philosophy of putting the patient first, and both are clinician-driven. We are optimistic to find more partners like FOAA across the country."
