Global investment in 2022 has been majorly dominated by North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, whereas the Middle East, and South and Central America have recorded low investments comparatively. In light of this, Europe and North America have been identified as the major destinations for Private Equity and Venture Capital (PE/VC) investments.   GlobalData’s whitepaper analyzes which sectors PE/VC firms have been investing in, looking at Technology, Media, and Telecom, with these sectors recording $356 billion and a deal volume of over 10,000 deals in 2022. Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:

The merged emergency medicine platform will provide departmental operations at 43 locations, backed by a total clinical workforce of more than 700 physicians and advanced practice providers, providing treatment to annually around 1,000,000 patients.

AEMS’s physician partners will join as shareholders of ECP.

ECP CEO Bill Yarbrough said: “We are very excited to welcome AEMS and their providers as a regional physician group of Emergency Care Partners. Their strong, long-term relationship with their health system, paired with their commitment of delivering quality patient care within their community, makes them an ideal addition to our national group. We look forward to working with their physician leadership and leveraging our best practices and resources to support their growth and expansion across the region.”

The merged business will continue with the service-intensive approach to managing emergency departments, utilising ECP’s approach of combining local physician equity partnerships and an analytics platform to provide care to consumers across the region.

AEMS president Dr. Brian Scott said: “AEMS is excited to join the ECP team. We share the same aligned goals of delivering quality patient care to our local communities and maintaining physician ownership.

“This new partnership will allow us to leverage ECP’s infrastructure and resources to provide enhanced efficiencies in delivering excellent patient care and broaden our footprint in our Arizona communities and the broader Southwest.”

ECP, which is backed by financial sponsors Varsity Healthcare Partners and Regal Healthcare Capital Partners, remains as a majority physician-held business. AEMS’s doctors join ECP’s current physician shareholders and partners.
