SAN DIEGO (May 6, 2021)—AMN Healthcare, a workforce solutions provider for health care facilities, is entering the post-acute care market with the recent acquisition of the telehealth company Synzi for $42 million in cash. The transaction closed in April 2021.
“The impact of severe shortages of talent within healthcare will have lasting effects,” said Susan R. Salka, CEO of AMN Healthcare. “To ensure AMN is well-prepared to continue evolving and delivering on our promise of total talent solutions, we are increasing investments in our team and technologies, in particular our digital capabilities. At the same time, we are making greater investments in building talent solutions for all reaches of the care continuum. Last month, we were thrilled to close the acquisition of Synzi, adding technology-enabled virtual care solutions for the outpatient and home health markets, where more health care will be delivered in the future.”
“I am excited to welcome the talented Synzi team to the AMN family,” Salka added. “We believe the combination of the Synzi platform and AMN services will give us a strong offering for post-acute care. Health systems' continuum of care is expanding, and we will use the AMN-Synzi combination to help our clients expand their scope of care.”
Lee Horner, Chief Executive Officer of Synzi, said, “We are ecstatic to join the AMN Healthcare team. Our partnership with AMN positions Synzi to accelerate our existing growth strategy while enhancing patient care and outcomes on a national level.”
Synzi provides virtual care and remote patient monitoring platforms in the home health and outpatient markets. These solutions enable organizations to conduct virtual visits and use secure messaging, text and email for clinician-to-patient and clinician-to-clinician communications.
