Silver Springs Emergency Physicians Joins USACS

GERMANTOWN, Md.

US Acute Care Solutions (USACS) today announced the physicians of SILVER SPRING EMERGENCY PHYSICIANS (SSEP) will join the national leader in emergency medicine, hospitalist and observation services in its Mid-Atlantic region.

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.

SSEP emergency medicine clinicians provide care to approximately 110,000 patients annually at two hospital emergency departments in the Washington, D.C. metro area.

“USACS Mid-Atlantic is very pleased to welcome SSEPs’ physicians into our coalition. We’ve been practicing in the same region as colleagues, neighbors and friends for many years, and now I’m proud to call them fellow owners of USACS,” said Angelo Falcone MD, president, USACS Mid-Atlantic.

“As physician-owners of SSEP, we were committed to the same bedrock principles as USACS,” said James A. DelVecchio MD, president, SSEP. In a sense, nothing changes, except that we’ve preserved our preferred way of practicing medicine for the long-term. So clearly, this is a great decision for our physicians, our hospital partners and, most importantly, our patients.”

The shareholders of SSEP have approved this transaction and will join USACS Mid-Atlantic December 1, 2016.
