MEDNAX, a national health solutions partner comprised of the nation's leading providers of physician services, has acquired a private multi-specialty physician group practice based in Texas from Newborn Intensive Care Specialists.
Established in 2000, NICS is a private practice that employs 27 full time clinicians (14 physicians, 12 advanced practitioners and one audiologist). The practice provides neonatology (Level II and Level III), maternal-fetal medicine, newborn hearing screen and pediatric services to seven hospitals and one office-based practice across the Houston and Dallas markets including Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center, Lake Pointe Medical Center and Methodist Richardson Medical Center.
“The practice is excited to be joining MEDNAX’s national network and look forward to the value and quality this will bring from a continuum of care perspective to the many communities we serve across multiple specialties,” said Tung Giep, CEO. “In addition, as health care consolidation becomes the norm, we know that MEDNAX’s leadership and infrastructure as well as its national research, education and clinical quality initiatives will enhance our strategic market growth throughout the state of Texas.”
This acquisition adds to the services MEDNAX provides in Texas through its affiliated network of physicians across multiple specialties which include anesthesiology, neonatology, maternal fetal medicine, pediatric cardiology, pediatric hospitalist, pediatric ophthalmology, pediatric surgery, plastic surgery, pediatric urology, developmental pediatrics, pediatric ENT and radiology.
