Dallas-based Pinnacle Anesthesia and Orlando-based JLR Medical Group announced that they will join Greater Houston Anesthesiology as founding partners in U.S. Anesthesia Partners, an anesthesia-focused physician services organization.


The partnership brings together three of the largest anesthesia groups in the country. Each of the groups will continue to provide services under their individual brands.

"In today's environment you see hospital systems and payers becoming increasingly large through consolidation, and as they become larger they are demanding a higher level of service and sophistication from their anesthesia providers as well as more investment in IT," says Kristen Bratberg, president and CEO of U.S. Anesthesia Partners. "We think we provide a unique opportunity because we provide practice support functions and can help anesthesia providers by sharing resources and investing in infrastructure, but we allow our partners to retain ownership. Anesthesiologists are significant owners of USAP."
