With the completion of the Envision Healthcare and AMSURG merger, the new Envision has entered the next chapter of its journey to help improve lives in the communities it serves. William A. Sanger, Executive Chairman of Envision Healthcare Corporation, said “Our two organizations complement each other in a way few others could, and this merger accelerates our collective ability to positively impact healthcare delivery across the country. We are excited for the future and look forward to integrating the resources of Envision and AMSURG.”

The combination of Envision Healthcare and AMSURG brings together two leading, complementary healthcare companies to form one of the nation’s largest provider organizations, well positioned to help shape the future of healthcare delivery. Christopher A. Holden, President and Chief Executive Officer, added, “Envision Healthcare Corporation now has a national platform with a highly differentiated suite of solutions that will significantly increase our ability to empower physicians and serve clients.  The marketplace remains highly fragmented, providing ample opportunities for us to expand our existing relationships with health systems and to present our performance-enhancing offerings to other key stakeholders in clinical networks across the country.”

The new Envision is the leading provider of physician-led services, ambulatory surgery center management, post-acute care and medical transportation. The company manages a highly differentiated suite of clinical solutions to support health systems, communities and payors, is composed of a significantly diversified business mix of specialties, customers and geographies, and provides a broader continuum of patient care.

Physician-led services encompasses providers at more than 780 hospitals in 45 states and includes leadership positions in emergency department and hospitalist services, anesthesiology, and radiology, and women’s / children’s services, as well as offerings in general surgery and office-based medicine. As a market leader in ambulatory surgical care, the company owns and operates 260 surgery centers and one surgical hospital in 35 states and the District of Columbia with medical specialties ranging from gastroenterology to ophthalmology and orthopedics. Post-acute care is delivered through an array of clinical professionals and integrated technologies designed to contribute to efficient and effective population health management strategies. As a leader in healthcare transportation services, the company operates in 39 states and the District of Columbia.  In total, the company offers a differentiated suite of clinical solutions on a national scale, creating value for health systems, payors, providers and patients.
