AmSurg Corp.'s Physician Services Division, known as Sheridan, on Wednesday said it has acquired Jandee Anesthesiology Partners and certain assets of Karadan Anesthesiology and Pain Management. Together the groups tout five anesthesiologists who deliver services through a network of nine ambulatory surgery centers as well as other facilities in New York and New Jersey.

"Jandee Anesthesiology Partners has provided excellent care to its patients for many years. After a thorough search, we selected Sheridan as the strategic partner we felt would best position us to continue our tradition of excellence," said doctors Monte Goldstein and John Pillitteri, co-managing members of Jandee Anesthesiology Partners, in a statement.

The company in, early November 2015, made headlines when they pulled out of a high profile $7.6 billion deal with TeamHealth, a physician services company, that would have given shareholders 0.768 shares of AmSurg and $15.49 in cash for every share of TeamHealth. That was a raise from the original offer, which included more than $11 in cash per share of TeamHealth.

AmSurg pulled out of the deal, blaming TeamHealth board members for failing to engage with them.
