We are very excited to announce our new partnership with the physicians and staff of Tavares Surgery, LLC in Tavares, Florida. We will not only be partnering with Drs. Baskar, Gabriel, Goodman, and Ramaiah in their endoscopy center, but also in their related anesthesia service. This partnership only further strengthens our position in central Florida, and we look forward to working with this group to meet the needs of the community there.
Drs. Baskar and Gabriel have already proven to be excellent partners in our center in The Villages and we welcome the addition of Drs. Ramaiah and Goodman. These are all tremendous physicians with outstanding reputations. With the addition of the Tavares partnership to our family, Covenant is now the majority owner in 37 ASCs around the country and six in Florida.
Please join us in welcoming them to Covenant and we look forward to continued growth and good news throughout 2017 and beyond.
