DENVER, Co.

US Acute Care Solutions (USACS) today announced the clinicians of LONGS PEAK EMERGENCY PHYSICIANS (LPEP) will join the national leader in emergency medicine, hospitalist and observation services in its Colorado region in December.

Founded by emergency medicine physician groups in Colorado, Florida, Maryland and Ohio, and capital partner Welsh, Carson, Anderson, & Stowe, USACS is committed to the principle that high-quality patient care and the best hospital partnerships result when physicians maintain ownership and management of their practice.

LPEP emergency medicine clinicians provide emergency care to patients at Longmont United Hospital and Indian Peaks Emergency Center north of the Denver metro area.

“USACS Colorado is excited to have the LPEP clinicians join our group. We continue to expand our relationships with key partners, and I’m confident the LPEP clinicians will only enhance those same relationships,” said Mark Prather MD, president of USACS Colorado.

“We share the same values and standards for clinical excellence as the other clinicians of USACS. Physician ownership is yet another key to high-quality patient care and we are excited about joining such an outstanding organization,” said Herb Ogden MD, president, LPEP. “This is a great opportunity for our physicians to preserve ownership as the cornerstone of our practice for the benefit of our hospital partner and, most importantly, our patients.”
