SpecialtyCare, a provider of outsourced perfusion, intraoperative neuromonitoring, and surgical services, has completed an asset purchase of Trident Health Resources, a clinically focused perfusion services company.

With coverage in 44 states, SpecialtyCare’s perfusion division now supports over 120,000 annual open heart and perfusion-related procedures for 850 surgeons at more than 350 hospitals, extending the company’s market leading position as the largest and most comprehensive provider of cardiovascular perfusion and perfusion-related services in the US.

SpecialtyCare CEO Melvin Hall, said: “I am thrilled to welcome the people of Trident to our team. They have built a tremendous reputation for the highest level of perfusion expertise based on a patient-first philosophy and an evidence-based approach to care. That powerful combination makes Trident an extremely valuable clinical partner.”

With this acquisition, SpecialtyCare said it continues to demonstrate its commitment to limiting customer exposure to the financial risk and reputation damage that can result from illegal physician referrals, kickbacks, and other activities that are under increasing government scrutiny.

Trident CEO and President Ralph Jordan, who founded the company in 1988, said: “After growing this business from the ground up and taking great care to build a reputation for excellence and integrity, it was essential for me to choose a partner who would honor and sustain that legacy. I have complete confidence that SpecialtyCare is the right choice. Our clinicians will enjoy new professional development opportunities with a strong and stable company while also using SpecialtyCare’s robust benchmarking and evidenced-based clinical standards to continually improve patient care.”
