MEDNAX Announces Acquisition Of Neonatology Practice In Ohio

MEDNAX, Inc., (NYSE: MD) today announced the acquisition of Dayton Newborn Care Specialists, Inc., a neonatal physician group practice based in Dayton, Ohio. The practice will become part of MEDNAX’s Pediatrix Medical Group division, a national group practice consisting of the nation’s leading neonatal, maternal-fetal medicine, pediatric cardiology, and other pediatric specialty physicians.

Established in 2006, Dayton Newborn Care Specialists is a private practice that consists of three neonatologists and one pediatrician, who provide a wide spectrum of services, including neonatal intensive care, labor and delivery, newborn nursery, and maternal consults at Dayton Children’s Hospital, a Level III, 41-bed neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), Springfield Regional Medical Center, a Level II NICU, as well as services at nine other hospitals in the greater Dayton metropolitan area.

“We can only foresee positive outcomes from uniting with Pediatrix, including more time focused on caring for Dayton’s most critical newborns, as we have done for nearly 20 years,” said M. David Yohannan, M.D., who will serve as medical director for the practice. “We knew change would be inevitable if we were going to manage the challenges ahead in the uncertain healthcare environment. Being part of Pediatrix will provide us with the support we need for the business operations of our practice, such as billing, compliance, credentialing and recruiting, as well important research, education and quality initiatives.”

Pediatrix Medical Group currently provides NICU services at Miami Valley Hospital, which earlier this year joined with Dayton Children’s Hospital to form the Southwest Ohio Neonatal Collaborative. The purpose of the collaborative is to elevate the quality of care and strengthen the health care delivery system for mothers and babies by drawing on the expertise of the two regional high-risk centers.

“Dr. Yohannan and the neonatology team at Dayton Newborn Care Specialists have been an important part of the success of our regional level III NICU. We are pleased they will continue to provide the highest level of care to the critically ill newborns here at Dayton Children’s as part of Pediatrix Medical Group,” stated Deborah Feldman, president and CEO of Dayton Children’s Hospital. “We know the emphasis Pediatrix places on driving clinical research, quality, education and improved outcomes is parallel to ours and will only serve to enrich the mission of Dayton Children’s and the Southwest Ohio Neonatal Collaborative.”
