Insiders: AmSurg, Envision in talks for $9B merger

AmSurg and Envision Healthcare Holdings are reportedly in talks about a potential merger, and the companies may reach a deal by as early as next week, people familiar with the matter told the Wall Street Journal.

The transaction would create a company valued at more than $9 billion, according to the article.

Nashville, Tenn.-based AmSurg provides physician outsourcing services to hospitals and healthcare organizations and operates more than 200 ambulatory surgical centers. Denver-based Envision provides outsourcing and medical transportation services.

Last year, AmSurg proposed a $5.3 billion merger with Knoxville, Tenn.-based TeamHealth Holdings, another physician outsourcing group. AmSurg withdrew the proposal after TeamHealth said the unsolicited offer was too low.
