Taking the Worry Out of Surgery Center Mergers and Acquisitions

Our long-time client, United Surgical Partners International, Inc. wanted to merge one of its ambulatory surgery centers in Oklahoma with another owned by a health care system and several independent physician investors. The merger of the two entities required analysis of various complex legal issues, including tax, licensure, and Medicare certification.  However, the transaction encountered multiple problems.  Ultimately, we helped the parties restructure the merger as an asset sale, which resolved otherwise intractable issues. With extra effort, determination and persuasion, we were able to bring the seemingly impossible transaction to a successful close.
This transaction was just one of dozens that have been the lifeblood of this client's continuously profitable business. Like a good doctor, we have been constantly on call since 1998 for the Dallas-based USPI – one of the biggest owners of outpatient surgery centers and surgical hospitals in the country. We have helped USPI operate successfully in one of the most heavily regulated industries in the nation, by facilitating the completion of mergers and acquisitions, private offerings, partnership agreements, as well as facility and physician contracts.
