Ziegler, a Chicago-based specialty investment bank, served as financial advisor to Nashville Anesthesia (NAS) in its sale to Envision Healthcare through its Envision Physician Services platform (Envision)

NAS is the exclusive provider of anesthesia services at StoneCrest Medical Center and Southern Hills Medical Center as well as three ambulatory surgery centers in the Nashville area. The combination with Envision provides NAS with a national platform on which to grow and continue to offer strong clinical services to its hospital and ASC partners and serves as Envision’s initial expansion into the Nashville anesthesia market.

Dr. Bradley Fry, a founding partner and member of the senior leadership team of Nashville Anesthesia Services, said, “We made the right decision in hiring Ziegler as our advisor. Their understanding of the nuances associated with physician services transactions within the anesthesia community positioned NAS to achieve our best outcome from both a value and partnership perspective. We were very impressed with their commitment to our team through every stage of the transaction.”
