AmSurg Corp., through its subsidiaries, provides ambulatory and physician services in the United States. Business The company operates in two lines of business: ambulatory surgery services and outsourced physician services. Ambulatory Services Division Through its Ambulatory Services division, the company acquires, develops and operates ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs, surgery centers, or centers) in partnership with physicians. As of December 31, 2014, the company operated 246 ASCs in 34 states and the District of Columbia in partnership with approximately 2,000 physicians, and provided physician services to approximately 320 healthcare facilities in 24 states, employing 2,800 physicians and other healthcare professionals. The company’s surgery centers are located adjacent to or in proximity to the medical practices of its partner physicians. It owns a majority interest, primarily 51%, in the facilities the company operates. The company also owns a minority interest in certain centers in partnerships with health systems and physicians. The company’s surgery centers primarily provide elective, high volume, lower-risk surgical procedures across multiple specialties, including gastroenterology, ophthalmology, and orthopaedics. The company acquires, develops and operates ASCs through the formation of strategic partnerships with physicians to better serve the communities in its markets. The types of procedures performed at each surgery center depend on the specialty of the practicing physicians that use the surgery center. The procedures most commonly performed at its surgery centers are: gastroenterology - colonoscopy and other endoscopy procedures; ophthalmology - cataracts and retinal laser surgery; and orthopaedic - knee and shoulder arthroscopy and carpal tunnel repair. The company’s surgery centers perform an average of approximately 6,700 procedures per year, though there is a range among centers from a low of approximately 1,000 procedures per year to a high of approximately 32,000 procedures per year. Strategy: The main components of the company’s strategy are as follows: attract and retain physicians that are leaders in their specialty and community; increase same-center revenues and profitability at its existing surgery centers; expand its national network of ASCs by selectively acquiring both single-specialty ASCs and multi-specialty ASCs, and developing new ASCs in partnership with physicians and health systems; and pursue the acquisition of companies that own and operate multiple ASCs. Competition: The company competes with HCA Healthcare Corporation; Surgery Partners; Surgical Care Affiliates, Inc.; and United Surgical Partners, Inc. Physician Services Division The Physician Services division provides outsourced physician services in multiple specialties to hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and other healthcare facilities, primarily in the areas of anesthesiology, children’s services, emergency medicine and radiology. As of December 31, 2014, the company provided physician services, primarily in the areas of anesthesiology, children’s services, radiology and emergency medicine services, to approximately 320 healthcare facilities in 24 states and employed 2,800 physicians and other healthcare professionals.
