Dr. Singer added, "We continue to execute on our strategy of organic hiring and acquisition growth, as demonstrated by the significant number of providers we added during 2012. We completed 15 acquisitions in 2012, and our acquisition pipeline remains healthy, with a significant number of physician practices in both the acute and post-acute areas. In addition, we continue to evaluate opportunities to add to our practices through hospital contracting. We remain confident in our ability to continue to execute our multi-pronged growth plan in 2013 and beyond."
