AmSurg to Acquire Sheridan Healthcare for $2.35B

Staff - Print  | 

AmSurg Corp., a Nashville, Tenn.-based company that acquires, develops and operates ambulatory surgery centers in partnership with physician groups, has agreed to acquire Sheridan Healthcare, a provider of outsourced physician services based in Sunrise, Fla., in a cash and stock transaction valued at about $2.35 billion.

The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter this year. As a combined company, it will have a total addressable market of approximately $70 billion and include more than 4,600 physician relationships in 38 states.

"With the addition of Sheridan, we will be significantly diversified and differentiated — holding leadership positions in outsourced physician services for anesthesia, children's services, emergency medicine services and radiology while retaining our standing as a leading owner of freestanding ambulatory surgery centers," said Christopher Holden, president and CEO of AmSurg, in a news release.

Sheridan is currently owned by private equity firm Hellman & Friedman. The company will be a "significant shareholder" of the combined company post-transaction, according to the release.

In April, Sheridan had announced it hired Credit Suisse Group, Barclays and Goldman Sachs to lead an initial public offering. It has been a private company since 1999.
