AmSurg Corp. said it has inked an affiliation agreement between its physician services division, Sheridan, and Ambulatory Anesthesia Care PC, a group practice serving facilities in New Jersey as part of plan to beef up its presence in the New York market.
Through the agreement, terms of which were not disclosed, Ambulatory Anesthesia Care is now the exclusive provider of anesthesia to The Center for Ambulatory Surgery in nearby Mountainside, which is an AmSurg multi-specialty partnership.
"This is a great example of the potential synergy we envisioned when Sheridan and AmSurg joined forces," Chris Holden, AmSurg president and CEO, said in a release. "We will continue to pursue arrangements like this that contribute to AmSurg's growth and better position all parties involved to deliver high quality patient care."
Shares of AmSurg (Ticker: AMSG) were up to $53.95 Wednesday morning. In the last three months, they are up 10 percent.
