Envision Healthcare recently acquired Oro Valley Anesthesia as part of its Physician Services business. Oro Valley currently provides care at two Tucson-area hospitals and eight surgery centers.
“We are excited to join Envision’s Physician Services organization, which will provide us with vital resources to enable our continued growth in the Tucson area while maintaining our focus on patient care,” Dr. Sally Vetter, president of Oro Valley Anesthesia, said. “Practicing as part of Envision, we expect to be well-positioned to adapt to new care models that will be based on demonstrating the quality of care that we provide in our community.”
Envision’s Physician Services business has recently expanded in Arizona by acquiring physician groups handling emergency medicine, neonatal care and anesthesia.
“We are successfully executing on a strategy of expanding our service offerings within key geographies by establishing the value that our model brings to our health system partners,” Robert J. Coward, president of Envision’s Physician Services, said. “Health systems are shifting expectations of their physician partners to include more comprehensive reporting on clinical and administrative measures. We believe that health systems benefit when physicians join Envision Physician Services and access the resources, infrastructure and expertise that we provide.”
The Envision Healthcare Corporation owns and operates 260 surgery centers across the United States.
