The COVID-19 pandemic changed the growth trajectory of many healthcare organizations in the last 12 months, but there were still major ASC acquisitions and partnerships.
Six interesting ASC deals:
1. Surgical Care Affiliates acquired Lakewood, Colo.-based Pinnacle III in early 2020, shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic began shutting down surgery centers across the U.S. Pinnacle III was founded in 1999 and has more than 40 surgery centers in its network. Former Pinnacle III CEO Rob Carrera became vice president of operations of Surgical Care Affiliates after the acquisition.
