- Just weeks after news that AmSurg and Envision Healthcare will merge, AmSurg’s physician services division, Sheridan, said it has acquired AllegiantMD.
- AllegiantMD, which provides onsite and remote-read subspecialized radiology services in the Tampa, Florida region will expand AmSurg’s footprint in the hospital radiology market nationwide, Robert Coward, president of Sheridan, said in a release.
- The Tampa-based company serves 18 facilities, including Hospital Corporation of America and Community Health Systems acute care hospitals.
“Through our combined development of market-changing information technologies, we plan to expand our vision of the future of radiology services throughout the national healthcare market to augment the clinical excellence of Sheridan’s other hospital-based medical services,” AllegiantMD CEO Ellis Norsoph said.
Allegiant’s 43 radiologists will join Sheridan’s 300 board-certified radiologists serving150 facilities in 22 states. AmSurg predicts the combined companies will interpret about 6 million radiology exams a year.
Last month, AmSurg and Envision announced plans to merge, creating a combined company with a $10 billion market capitalization. The new company, Envision Healthcare Corporation, will be co-headquartered in Nashville and Greenwood Village, Colorado.
The recent merger activity comes after AmSurg lost its bid to acquire hospital staffing firm TeamHealth Holdings in November 2015.
Financial details of the Sheridan deal were not disclosed.
