Brentwood-based American Physician Partners has announced the acquisition of Kalamazoo Emergency Associates in Michigan.
The local emergency medicine and hospital management services company will assume emergency department management at four facilities in Michigan. According to a release, the new contracts represent approximately 111,000 annual emergency department patient visits.
“After discussions with many potential emergency medicine groups, we chose American Physician Partners because their philosophy of patient-centered care closely mirrored ours,” Kalamazoo Emergency Associates President Eric Blackwell said in the release. “This partnership will strengthen our group’s ability to deliver exceptional care to the patients we have the privilege of serving in Southwest Michigan.”
