Orange Coast Anesthesia (OCA), the fastest-growing anesthesia group serving Southern California’s Orange, Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties, has been acquired by North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA). With its first acquisition on the West Coast, NAPA expands its presence beyond the 11 states where more than 2,000 NAPA clinicians provide anesthesia and chronic pain-management services. Provident Healthcare Partners (“Provident”) served as exclusive financial advisor to Orange Coast Anesthesia (OCA). The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“Dr. Tom and OCA have a stellar reputation and quality-focused culture, which has enabled their rapid growth strategy in Southern California. OCA and NAPA share a similar vision of advancing high-quality anesthesia care throughout California, which will enable their partnership to be a tremendous success,” commented Rebecca Leiba, Managing Director at Provident Healthcare Partners.
“This transaction is an exciting milestone for Dr. Wynnson Tom and the shareholders of Orange Coast Anesthesia, who have built a highly successful anesthesia model in Southern California in a relatively short period of time. While OCA was already a fast-growing anesthesia practice in its market, we believe NAPA’s resources and infrastructure will enable the organization to accelerate its expansion strategy throughout the state,” noted AJ Shekar, Vice President at Provident.
