MEDNAX Announces Acquisition Of Anesthesiology Practice In New York

MEDNAX, Inc., (NYSE: MD) today announced the acquisition of Northern Westchester Anesthesia Services, P.C. (NWAS), a physician group practice primarily based in Mt. Kisco, New York. The practice, which was acquired by one of the company's affiliated professional contractors in New York, will become part of MEDNAX’s American Anesthesiology division and is the second New York-based anesthesiology practice to join this division.

Established in 2003, NWAS is a private group practice that employs 16 anesthesiologists and 9 anesthetists providing anesthesia services across a wide spectrum of subspecialty areas to Northern Westchester Hospital, Westchester Health Associates, The Institute of Aesthetic Surgery and Medicine at Northern Westchester Hospital, and Westchester Bronx OB/GYN at its Bronx and Yonkers locations. Services include, but are not limited to, neurosurgery (including spine), pediatric, obstetric, gynecological, thoracic, general surgery, reconstructive surgery, orthopedic surgery, minimally invasive robotic surgery, as well as acute pain management services.

Through the practice’s partnership with Northern Westchester Hospital, NWAS is part of the LifeWings Patient Safety Initiative, a comprehensive program designed to ensure that a "culture of safety" exists throughout the entire perioperative process. The program, a critical component to improving patient outcomes, encompasses the same principles found in High Reliability Organizations (HROs), such as those in the aerospace and aviation industries. American Anesthesiology has already implemented a similar patient safety program at its Atlanta-based practice, and has plans to roll out the program in other practices.

“Our practice’s mission is aligned with that of American Anesthesiology, therefore our ability to focus on delivering the highest quality care to our patients will be supported by their established infrastructure as we face the changing healthcare environment together,” said David Miller, M.D., who will serve as medical director for the practice. “Further, our clinical focus on achieving better patient outcomes will only be enhanced by our participation in American Anesthesiology’s innovative research, education and quality initiatives.”
