Miami Lakes, Florida, May 31, 2024

Elevate ENT Partners (“Elevate ENT”), a leading national management service organization (“MSO”) of ear, nose, and throat (“ENT”) practices, has finalized a partnership with Lafayette ENT and Hebert Medical Group in Louisiana. This marks Elevate ENT’s eighth partnership within the state since late 2023, reinforcing Elevate ENT’s commitment to supporting quality physicians as they expand their practices in the Louisiana market. Elevate ENT’s recent acquisitions include:

  • Louisiana ENT and Sinus: Based in Baton Rouge with twelve board-certified otolaryngologists and fourteen advanced practitioner providers in six locations.
  • Southern ENT Associates: Comprised of six board-certified otolaryngologists and nine advanced practitioner providers, across six locations in Thibodaux, Raceland, Houma, Morgan City, New Iberia, and Youngsville.
  • Dakin ENT: Partnership with one board-certified otolaryngologist and one advanced practice provider, with locations in Opelousas and Lafayette.
  • Doucet ENT: Partnership with one board-certified otolaryngologist and one advanced practice provider located in Lafayette.
  • Noel ENT Clinic: Partnership with one board-certified otolaryngologist and four advanced practice providers with locations in Abbeville and Lafayette.
  • ENT Associates of Northeast Louisiana: Partnership with two board-certified otolaryngologists and two advanced practice providers located in Monroe.
  • Lafayette ENT Specialists: Comprised of three board-certified otolaryngologists and three advanced practitioner providers located in three locations in Lafayette, Lake Charles, and Vidalia.
  • Hebert Medical Group: Partnership with one board-certified otolaryngologist and two advanced practice providers located in four locations in Eunice, Lake Charles, Jennings, and Lafayette.

"After evaluating the future possibilities for Louisiana ENT, the benefits of joining forces with a distinguished leader in otolaryngology became clear," expressed Dr. Ryan T. Boone, physician partner at Louisiana ENT and Sinus. "Partnering with Elevate ENT equips our team with advanced technology and supportive resources, enhancing our procedures and enriching the healthcare journey for our patients.”

"Maintaining clinical autonomy to provide the most optimal care for my patients was a significant factor in my choice," stated Dr. J. Vance Broussard, physician partner at Southern ENT Associates. "When healthcare decisions are entrusted to physicians rather than dictated by external interests, we can deliver the best medical care, fostering greater patient trust and improved outcomes."

Elevate ENT Partners invests in independent ENT and allergy practices across the United States and provides operational and financial resources to help practices optimize their growth. These resources include financial management, revenue cycle management, marketing, human resources, and other important business disciplines. Elevate ENT is actively pursuing new partnerships throughout the United States.

“Having this many seasoned otolaryngologists join Elevate ENT in Louisiana underscores the robust support we offer our physicians, enabling them to focus on delivering top-notch care to patients," stated James Polfreman, CEO of Elevate ENT. "Enhancing access to ENT and allergy care for patients across the state of Louisiana is our priority, and we aim to further strengthen our presence in this region."
