During the second quarter PhyMed announced a new practice partnership. Anesthesia Services of Middle Tennessee (ASMT) and their pain group Pain Management of Middle Tennessee (PMMT) headquartered in Clarksville TN are now officially members of the PhyMed Team.
ASMT/PMMT is a respected and well established practice in the Nashville MSA and contiguous markets, comprised of 55 employees (10 physicians, 24 CRNAs, 8 administrative staff, and 13 pain practice employees) providing services to 8 facilities in the Nashville, Lebanon, Smyrna, Clarksville and Hopkinsville, KY markets. This partnership allows PhyMed to continue strategic expansion of integrated services, to partner with a like-minded practice, and create an alignment with our third national health system, Community Health Systems (CHS).
“PhyMed has a proven track record in Middle Tennessee, and we are excited that this partnership will allow us to focus on the provision of superior care and confident that the business side of our practice is in extremely capable and knowledgeable hands.”
– Dr. Barry Brasfield, President of ASMT/PMMT
When I first joined PhyMed last June as the Chief Business Development Officer, I knew that the anesthesia service that existed was a market leader. Little did I know what I would find as I peeled back the onion. Time and time again, the innovative service that has been developed over the past 20 years shows the attention to quality and customer service that made our platform practice a sought after solution. What more could a sales guy want?
Convincing hospital C-Suites to transition an anesthesia group is an extremely difficult undertaking. If a wrong decision is made, it can change the course of a healthcare facility executive’s career. A proven track record and satisfied customers are key to setting these executive’s minds at ease and greatly facilitate the potential success of an opportunity.
Everyone involved in building PhyMed and its family of companies should be very proud of the service and reputation they have created over the years.
It is not just my opinion:
PhyMed continues to seek opportunities to improve the quality, customer service and efficiency of anesthesia and critical care services across the country. We started in Tennessee in 2012 and have since entered Pennsylvania and Kentucky. As the recognition of the PhyMed name continues to grow and the word out of our value added service gets out, we expect to be a very busy business development department.
