Envision Healthcare Corp. — the physician staffing company formed through the merger of Nashville, Tenn.-based AmSurg Corp. and Greenwood Village, Colo.- based Envision Healthcare Holdings — will join the S&P 500.

Envision will replace Baltimore-based Legg Mason, which provides investment management services, on the S&P 500. The move will take place after the close of trading Thursday, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices.

AmSurg and Envision announced plans to merge in June. The shareholders of both companies approved the transaction Monday.
