JACKSON, Mich., May 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MiraMed Global Services, Inc. (MiraMed), a leader in healthcare revenue cycle management (RCM) services and business process outsourcing (BPO) solutions, announces it has completed its merger with Medac, Inc., a leading provider of anesthesia revenue cycle management. The combination creates the leading revenue cycle management platform in the anesthesia market with expanded service offerings and capabilities.
Medac has a long history of serving the anesthesia community. The combination of MiraMed's flagship anesthesia billing service provider, Anesthesia Business Consultants, LLC (ABC), newly joined with Medac, is poised to take the anesthesia industry by storm as an unparalleled force for the clients whom we serve.
With this new addition to our Family of Companies, MiraMed is bringing together the nation's most talented professionals in the anesthesia billing and practice management businesses. This partnership means better service and an improved experience for its clients. Partnering Medac with ABC, as a member of the MiraMed Family, MiraMed aims to exceed the higher-level needs and expectations of today's complex anesthesia practices.
Bijon Memar, Chairman and CEO of Medac, states, "both Medac and MiraMed realized that combining the strengths, resources and assets of ABC and Medac would be unique, and have the potential to unlock some enormous opportunities. The primary motivation for this partnership is to accelerate the evolution and distribution of a newly defined level of service. To that end, the goal is for Medac to retain its distinct brand and independence, as well as our culture, which is aligned with MiraMed's. I will continue as CEO of Medac and we will maintain our North Augusta office and employees. My team and I are very excited about this new partnership as we firmly believe that this merger will not only allow us to provide an unparalleled level of service that will exceed today's heightened level of client expectations, it will also facilitate growth—which translates into economic opportunity for everyone."
Tony Mira, Chairman & CEO of MiraMed, states, "anesthesia is a very sophisticated, specialized billing field. It is nuanced and it takes particular expertise to survive and thrive in this industry. With ABC's 40+ years of experience in the industry, together with Medac, we now have over 65 years of experience, expertise and success in this space. No other billing solution compares to what we have to offer. I am very excited about this next chapter for MiraMed as we welcome Medac into the MiraMed Family of Companies."
MiraMed financed the transaction with a new five-year, $135 million syndicated senior secured credit facility. The new facility enhances MiraMed's financial flexibility, providing increased capacity to drive growth through additional strategic acquisitions.
Citibank, N.A. acted as the sole book runner, lead arranger, and administrative agent for the syndicated credit facility. Citizens Bank acted as lead arranger and syndication agent.
