PhySynergy, LLC, a healthcare management services organization (MSO), today announced another new client partnership. PhySynergy will assume management of anesthesia services for publicly-supported Nashville General Hospital this month. In addition to bringing strong leadership and change management skills, PhySynergy will build NGH’s service capacity and anesthesia resources, by tapping into its extensive network of physician members.

“As we continue to invest in technologies and initiatives that improve safety and efficiency, we’re impressed by PhySynergy’s track record for effectively implementing change,” said Robert M. Lonis, Acting Chief Executive Officer of Nashville General, which maintains 125 staffed beds and relationships with Meharry Medical College and with Vanderbilt University. “Their mission aligns well with our own. We’re confident their experience in anesthesia practice management will yield positive outcomes for our surgical staff and our patients.”

In executing this new partnership, PhySynergy will call on more than 60 years of collective experience in healthcare management consulting and physician practice management. PhySynergy group founders have been instrumental in establishing, managing, and revitalizing physician service groups across the country.

“We are committed to providing the very best care to metropolitan Nashville and the Davidson County community,” affirmed Lonis. “This collaboration will be a tremendous boon to our clinicians, staff, and most importantly, to our patients.”

PhySynergy leaders expressed enthusiasm, as well. “New partnerships are always exciting,” commented Ron McDaniel, Vice President of Growth Strategies at PhySynergy. “But we’re particularly excited about working alongside the talented teams at Nashville General. It’s an exceptionally forward-thinking health system. We see incredible potential and huge opportunities there.”
