Three physician practice management companies announced acquisitions last week but did not disclose terms:
* Obstetrix Medical Group, a subsidiary of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Pediatrix Medical Group, acquired a 10-physician perinatal practice in Phoenix and a two-physician perinatal practice in Harrisburg, Pa.
* ProMedCo Medical Management, based in Fort Worth, Texas, completed the acquisition of Medical Office Services in Flagstaff, Ariz. The latter company provides management services to 16 multispecialty physicians. It is also affiliated with Family Care Center of Indiana, a 28-physician practice that provides hospitalist services to hospitals in northwest Indiana.
* AmeriPath, based in Riviera Beach, Fla., acquired Hialeah (Fla.) and South Florida Pathology, which has two employed physicians and six independent contractors. The practice posted net revenues of $3.5 million in 1998.
The acquisition increases AmeriPath's Florida presence to 12 practices and brings its employed physicians to 231 in 10 states.
Other recent deals include:
* Browne-McHardy Clinic, a 200-physician group in Metairie, La., and Christus Medical Group, a subsidiary of Dallas-based Christus Health, have agreed to create a 50-50 joint venture called Summit Health Group. Summit intends to operate practices throughout the Gulf South region.
* Three Texas urology groups merged to form Urology Clinics of North Texas, based in Dallas. They are Urology Specialists & Associates, a nine-physician practice based on the campus of Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas; a six-urology group named after its physicians, with offices at both Baylor Health Care System in Dallas and Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas; and Fort Worth (Texas) Urology Group, a five-physician practice.
