NAPA acquires American Anesthesiology

North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA) has acquired American Anesthesiology, a MEDNAX medical group, creating the destination of choice for anaesthesia, pain management, and perioperative care in the US.

With this transaction, NAPA will now employ, through its affiliated entities, more than 6,000 clinicians and staff who deliver quality anaesthesia and pain management services, at more than 500 facilities in 20 states and the District of Columbia, to over three million patients annually.

John Capua, 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 anaesthesia, 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.”

Roger Medel, Chief Executive Officer of MEDNAX, said: “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,”

“This transaction enables American Anesthesiology to become part of a clinician-led, clinically focused, single-specialty organisation dedicated to the provision of high-quality anaesthesia, 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.”
