Surgical Care Affiliates (SCA), a leading surgical solutions provider for physicians, health systems and payers, has acquired Health Inventures, a national surgical and physician services company operating more than 20 ASCs in partnership with 10 health system partners nationwide.

This combination with Health Inventures positions SCA as the leading provider of surgical solutions to over 40 health system partners.

“Surgery accounts for approximately 30% of the healthcare spend in the United States,” said Andrew Hayek, President and CEO of SCA. “The combination of SCA and Health Inventures positions us to provide services that will reduce the overall cost of providing these critical services. We are proud to have the many dedicated Health Inventures teammates joining SCA in our effort to provide surgical services in the most cost effective setting.”

“We are excited that Health Inventures and SCA are coming together,” said Dennis Martin, CEO of Health Inventures. “We believe that this combination will provide a broader and stronger array of services to our physician and health system partners.”

An industry leader, SCA partners with physicians, health systems and payers to develop and implement surgery strategies across the country. SCA now operates more than 180 surgical facilities – including ambulatory surgery centers, surgical hospitals, and hospital surgery departments – in partnership with approximately 2,200 physicians and in affiliation with more than 40 not-for-profit health systems across the country. SCA’s clinical systems, service line growth strategies, benchmarking processes and efficiency programs create measurable advantage for surgical facilities – clinically, operationally and financially.
