NorthStar Anesthesia, one of the country’s leading anesthesia care companies, announced today that it has acquired Anesthesia Management Solutions (AmSol), a North Carolina-based anesthesia management company with more than 20 locations across the Southeast and Midwest.
With this combination, NorthStar expands its footprint into four new states and increases its team of anesthesiologists and CRNAs to 1,200 providers caring for patients at more than 100 facilities in 18 states.
“We’re excited to join forces with AmSol,” said NorthStar CEO Chris Riopelle. “We know that together we will create a stronger and more effective community of caregivers focused on the highest quality of care for our patients, as well as the highest level of service to our surgeons and hospital partners.”
James W. Cottrell, M.D., CEO and founder of AmSol, added, “Like AmSol, NorthStar was founded on the principle of delivering excellence in anesthesia care supported by industry leading management services to hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers. Our teams complement each other well, and we are thrilled about expanding our business together.”
