Warren, OH – Physician Transaction Advisors (formerly ASCs Inc.) is pleased to announce that its client, the Lippy Surgery Center, has entered into a joint venture with SurgNet Health Partners, Inc., a Nashville, TN surgery center development and management company.  “We could not be more delighted to have partnered with the talented and committed physicians and staff at Lippy Surgery Center”, said Chase Neal, CEO of SurgNet Health Partners, Inc.

The physician-owners established the Lippy Surgery Center in 2008 with top-tier surgeons. The 7,182 sf Medicare certified and State licensed center includes 2 OR, 1 PR and 8 pre-op and recovery beds. The center is equipped and staffed to provide ENT, Ophthalmology, Retina and Plastics.

“As an organization, we felt that we would best be able to realize our goals by partnering with an organization that would support our growth initiatives and provide us with the clinical, operational, and business support that we feel is imperative as we move forward,” states Dr. Leonard Berenholz, Medical Director of Lippy. “What resonated with us was the time SurgNet took to clearly understand our goals and objectives, to learn about our organization while giving us the opportunity to clearly gauge the value they could bring to our group and they put together a compelling plan and offer that will enable us to meet our short and long-term objectives.”

“We selected Physician Transaction Partners (PTA) to help us manage this time consuming and complex process because they had extensive experience in similar transactions and an excellent reputation,” added Dr. Benenholz.  “PTA ensured our group that there was no obligation on our part to complete a transaction unless we found the right partner at the correct terms. We were beyond pleased with the end result and the value they added through the process.”

PTA Executive Vice President Stephanie Tarry stated, “We were impressed by how well the two groups worked together to complete this joint venture in a very timely manner once a decision had been made.  It was a pleasure working with the exceptional physicians at the Lippy Surgery Center and the legal teams on both sides which helped expedite the transaction process.  Both teams deserve credit for working to make this an exceptional partnership and the center will be a great addition for SurgNet.”
