MELVILLE, N.Y. & FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA) and MEDNAX, Inc. (NYSE: MD) today jointly announced the completion of NAPA’s acquisition of American Anesthesiology, a MEDNAX medical group, creating the destination of choice for anesthesia, pain management, and perioperative care in the United States.
NAPA was founded in 1986 by physicians with a mission to seek excellence in patient care and create value for its clinicians and hospital and ambulatory partners. That vision has helped the company grow from coast to coast. American Anesthesiology, founded in 2007, has grown into a leading and dynamic anesthesia partner, providing comprehensive, customized health solutions in a variety of clinical settings, which is well aligned with NAPA’s mission and vision. With this transaction, NAPA will now employ, through its affiliated entities, over 6,000 clinicians and staff who deliver quality anesthesia and pain management services, at more than 500 facilities in 20 states and the District of Columbia, to over three million patients annually.
John F. Di Capua, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of NAPA, said, “In welcoming American Anesthesiology’s clinicians and administrative team members to the NAPA family today, we are solidifying our role as the destination of choice for anesthesia, pain management, and perioperative care in the United States. Importantly, American Anesthesiology shares our commitment to putting patients first, and their clinicians will join us as we focus on delivering exceptional patient outcomes under our clinician-led, single-specialty model. We look forward to learning from, and collaborating with, our new colleagues as we leverage our combined expertise and resources to elevate the industry standard among our patients, clinicians, surgeons and hospital and ambulatory partners.”

“Anesthesiology clinicians are part of the backbone of the healthcare industry, and at no time has that been more evident than during this pandemic crisis,” said Roger J. Medel, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of MEDNAX. “This transaction enables American Anesthesiology to become part of a clinician-led, clinically focused, single-specialty organization dedicated to the provision of high-quality anesthesia, pain management, and perioperative care. At MEDNAX, we will remain focused on the care we provide and the opportunities available for growth in our Pediatrix & Obstetrix and MEDNAX Radiology Solutions medical groups, as well as Surgical Directions.”
