The physician services business of Envision Healthcare Corporation (Envision) has further expanded its anesthesia specialty and its presence in Phoenix, Arizona, through the acquisition of Desert Mountain Consultants in Anesthesia.
The group’s 14 physicians provide anesthesia services at HonorHealth’s John C Lincoln Medical Center and Deer Valley Medical Center, as well as several ambulatory surgery centers.
Mark Wix, president of Desert Mountain Consultants, said: “We are excited to partner with Envision and move into the next chapter of our future. With healthcare continuing to evolve, we feel that adding the right strategic partner will allow us to focus on patient care and put our practice in position to succeed for the long term.
Robert J Coward, president of Envision’s physician services unit, added: “Desert Mountain Consultants is a premier practice in Maricopa County, and this new partnership provides a natural extension of Envision’s existing anesthesia and other multi-specialty offerings in the greater Phoenix area.
“Having physicians effectively work and grow together has always been a core part of our mission and is a critical component in collaborating with our hospital partners to create high-performing clinical networks for the benefit of their patients and the communities in which they reside.”
