Phoenix Physicians specializes in outsourcing emergency department and other physician specialty services. The firm includes more than 500 physicians and clinicians, and serves 21 acute-care hospitals in six states.

The deal is expected to boost Envision Healthcare's revenue by $125 million annually, a modest addition to overall company revenue. In fiscal 2013, Envision posted net income of $6 million on revenue of more than $3.7 billion. EmCare represented almost $2.4 billion of total revenue.
