Here are five of the most interesting acquisitions in gastroenterology this year:
- In January, Pinnacle GI Partners teamed up with Michigan Gastroenterology Institute and Capitol Colorectal Surgery, a little more than a month after Pinnacle GI’s formation. Lansing, Mich.-based Michigan Gastroenterology Institute was formed in 1988. The practice’s team of gastroenterologists and advanced practice providers staff 12 facilities in Lansing. The partnership made Pinnacle GI Partners the largest provider of gastroenterology services in Michigan.
- Physician-owned, West Palm Beach, Fla.-based Gastro Group of the Palm Beaches joined Tampa (Fla.) General Hospital in January. The group rebranded as Tampa General Hospital Gastro Group of the Palm Beaches. The Gastro Group of the Palm Beaches had five gastroenterologists and was formed 40 years ago.
