Miami Lakes, FL, 02/23/2021 — Elevate ENT Partners today announced the launch of its new management service organization platform. Formed by the physician-led leadership team of South Florida ENT Associates, with investment from Audax Private Equity (“Audax”), Elevate ENT Partners invests in private ENT and allergy practices across the United States and provides scalable administrative assistance that removes barriers to quality care and enables practitioners to achieve their professional and financial goals.
“Elevate ENT Partners is focused on preserving and elevating ENT private practices by enabling their clinical independence and empowering their success in an increasingly complex and consolidated healthcare landscape,” said James Polfreman, President & CEO at Elevate ENT Partners. “As a physician-led practice management support organization, Elevate ENT Partners is uniquely positioned to understand the opportunities and challenges that private practices face”.
The new platform creates a leading management support organization in the otolaryngology, otology, laryngology, and neuro-otology fields, with nearly 1,000 employees across 60 locations. Private practices that affiliate with Elevate ENT Partners maintain their clinical autonomy while receiving administrative support to achieve optimal patient outcomes and grow their practice, including revenue cycle management, compliance, marketing, information technology and human resources, as well as other services to support business operations. Affiliated practices also benefit from enhanced economies of scale that deliver cost savings to their bottom line, capital investment to fund expansion, highly competitive compensation and benefit packages, and ongoing investment in staff development.
“Our partnership with Audax and Elevate ENT has provided the physicians in our group the confidence in our ability to maintain a private practice that has long term stability. Aligning ourselves with Elevate ENT has enabled our physicians to achieve a better work-life balance by reducing the stress and time spent running the business side of the practice. We are able to devote more time for patient care without interference from management and improve the quality of care we provide to our patients.” said Frank Kronberg, MD, FACS, South Florida ENT Associates Board Member.
The Elevate ENT Partners family of practices currently includes South Florida ENT Associates, Texas ENT Specialists, and The Barranco Clinic, with plans to acquire additional practice groups nationally.
“Through affiliation with Elevate ENT Partners, physician/owners now have an alternative to hospital groups and insurance companies that consolidate their practices and put physicians into an employee model that prioritizes profits over patient outcomes”, adds Polfreman. “We value patient outcomes and the expertise of our physicians above all else, and we’re committed to securing their long-term success.”
