NorthStar Anesthesia, one of the country’s leading anesthesia care companies, announced today that it has acquired Continental Anesthesia, the largest multi-system anesthesia provider in the Chicago area with 17 facilities.
With this combination, NorthStar expands its footprint in Illinois where it currently serves two facilities and increases its team of anesthesiologists and CRNAs to 1,700 providers across the country caring for patients at more than 180 facilities in 20 states. “We are excited about the collaboration with Continental Anesthesia,” said NorthStar CEO Chris Riopelle. “Like us, Continental Anesthesia has experience serving multi-facility systems and is dedicated to maintaining the highest quality of care for our patients, as well as the highest level of service to our surgeons and hospital partners.”
Antonio Abrego, M.D., President of Continental, added, “Both organizations are committed to the highest quality of patient care and customizing partnerships based on the hospital or ASC’s unique needs. That collaboration along with the experience the NorthStar leadership and their caregiver teams bring, are why we are very excited about joining what we believe will become the greatest anesthesia care community in the country.”
