Emergency and hospital medicine management companies Schumacher Clinical Partners (SCP) and ECI Healthcare Partners, Inc. (ECI) have announced their companies’ merger has closed, resulting in an active presence across the country with a combined 450 programs, across 32 states, caring for over 8 million patients a year.
“Though we were competitors for many years, we are now eager for this unification,” said Rich D’Amaro, chief executive officer, SCP. “This combination results in an expansion of our resources, a further growth of our service offerings, and the utilization of industry leading best practices,” he added.
“We’re bringing two exceptionally strong organizations together,” said Dr. Derik K. King, president of ECI Healthcare Partners. “But even more importantly, we’re bringing together a shared mission: to empower our partner providers and healthcare facilities to deliver exceptional care to their communities.”
