Envision Healthcare’s physician services business acquires Alabama Neonatal Medicine


The Physician Services business of Envision Healthcare Corporation (EVHC) has further expanded its women’s and children’s services specialty, and its footprint in Alabama, through the acquisition of Alabama Neonatal Medicine.

The group’s four physicians cover the neonatology units at Jackson Hospital, Baptist Medical Center East and Baptist Medical Center South in the Montgomery, Alabama, area.

This combination extends Envision’s existing neonatal programs in Huntsville, Mobile, and Dothan, Alabama.

Allen Newton, president of Alabama Neonatal Medicine, said: “We at Alabama Neonatal Medicine are excited about joining our efforts with Envision Healthcare. Our focus has always been on improving the healthcare of infants in central Alabama.

“Envision not only shares this goal, but will bring its unparalleled expertise and resources to this endeavor. Working together with the region’s hospitals and other medical providers, we will strive to enhance the healthcare experiences and outcomes of young children and their families throughout central Alabama.”

Robert J Coward, president of Envision’s Physician Services business, added: “We are excited to have been chosen by the physicians of Alabama Neonatal Medicine as their strategic partner in growing their practice and providing the necessary resources to thrive in a dynamic healthcare environment.

“At Envision, we are committed to the growth and development of each of our service lines, and this practice is a great addition to our women’s and children’s specialty.”
