North American Partners in Anesthesia and Wisconsin-based Association of Hospital Anesthesiologists Announce Managed Services Partnership

North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA), the largest single-specialty anesthesia and perioperative management company in the United States, today announced it has forged a new partnership with Association of Hospital Anesthesiologists (AHA) located in Neenah, WI. NAPA will be providing managed services to the Appleton, WI-based practice at two hospitals and three ambulatory surgery centers (ASC) in the ThedaCare health system. This marks NAPA’s continued growth in the Midwest, where it currently provides anesthesia and management services to hospitals and other healthcare facilities in Michigan and throughout the Chicagoland area.

 “As healthcare continues to place emphasis on cost, performance improvement and reimbursements, both NAPA and AHA understand the value and importance of implementing strategies that improve the quality and efficiency of care that patients receive,” said John Di Capua, MD, CEO of NAPA. “We look forward to serving as AHA’s strategic partner and providing them with critical infrastructure and tools to thrive in this competitive marketplace.”

AHA is comprised of 27 physicians and nine certified registered nurse anesthetists, and is led by Tanner Lang, MD. NAPA will be providing the practice with comprehensive services, including revenue cycle management, business development, quality improvement reporting, risk management and analytics.

“Partnering with NAPA has allowed AHA to take our practice to the next level for our customers,” said Dr. Lang of AHA. “Through our new relationship, AHA will gain access to national best practices and resources in order to provide top level care to each patient we encounter at our local level.”

AHA’s client, Mark Hermans, MD, Vice President of Medical Affairs for ThedaCare Regional Medical Center Appleton and ThedaCare Regional Medical Center Neenah echoed, “It is a great pleasure to work with NAPA and AHA to develop a true partnership that is transformational in how we deliver anesthesia services to the patients we serve. Through the alignment of our organizations, we will be able to expand on our mission to improve the health and well-being of our communities.  By delivering high quality care at a lower cost, our goal is to have our facilities become the destination of choice for our surgeons, proceduralists and patients. We look forward to a long lasting partnership with NAPA and AHA.”
