IRVING, Texas and ATLANTA, June 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — NorthStar Anesthesia, an industry leader in anesthesia care, and EyeSouth Partners, the largest surgically-focused ophthalmology managed service organization in the country, have expanded their partnership to pair NorthStar’s anesthesia services with five additional EyeSouth ambulatory surgery centers across the United States.

NorthStar and EyeSouth first partnered in 2023 at an EyeSouth surgery center in Florida and grew to two additional centers in Ohio that same year. In deepening this partnership, NorthStar will expand its services to five additional EyeSouth centers located in Cincinnati, Chicago, and Atlanta. This partnership represents a groundbreaking collaboration, being the first instance where either company has joined forces with another national healthcare service provider.

“EyeSouth Partners is dedicated to partnering with premier healthcare providers such as NorthStar to ensure our affiliate practices consistently deliver exceptional patient outcomes within their communities,” said Eugene Gabianelli, M.D., Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of EyeSouth Partners. “We look forward to expanding our collaboration with NorthStar and setting new benchmarks for high-quality ophthalmic care.”

EyeSouth supports its network of more than 40 eye care practices and over 300 physician partners with strategic guidance, administrative resources, operating expertise, and capital with an absolute focus on clinical quality and a patient-first culture. By partnering with NorthStar, the two providers will leverage their networks to deliver standardized practices and high-quality care nationwide.

“We’re excited to continue growing our partnership with EyeSouth, which shares our values of putting patient care first, operating for the long term, and providing clinicians with a rewarding place to work within a national network of health care professionals deeply rooted in their local communities,” NorthStar Anesthesia CEO Adam Spiegel said.

With NorthStar’s track record of success in providing high quality anesthesiology care, the partnership will further enhance care protocols for anesthesia across the EyeSouth network to promote a consistently excellent patient experience. NorthStar’s anesthesiology providers will work alongside EyeSouth’s existing affiliate ophthalmologists at these partnered locations, becoming fully integrated members of EyeSouth’s patient care teams, just as NorthStar does with health systems and ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) across the country.
