When our initial leadership team came together to establish Surgery Partners in 2004, they realized that one-size-fits-all healthcare was lacking. Partners, physicians, and patients deserve to be treated as individuals. Surgery Partners sees the value in this individuality. 

How does our national network of short stay surgical facilities maintain an unparalleled connection to each site? By remaining flexible. Our partnerships and our ownership interest in them are as unique as the communities we serve. We meet your needs first - not the other way around. 

Far more than a business arrangement, Surgery Partners has a rich history of reaching out to its partners, maintaining accessibility to resources and expertise rarely found in our industry. Our relationships have always been our priority, something we attribute to "ten.," our company's guiding principles. 

Surgery Partners' story is as simple as its business style: We deliver quality at an exceptional value. We make healthcare local, and more importantly, personal. 

A history of events:
Providing a strong foundation for success.



Our story began in 2004 with the formation of Surgery Partners with a physician-centric operating philosophy.


We merged with NovaMed in 2011 with a focus on ophthalmology services.


After achieving a milestone of ten successful years, we merged with Symbion Healthcare, a large multi-specialty provider of ambulatory surgery centers and hospitals.


We are an industry leader focused on vertical integration through ancillary services, including physician practices, optical services and laboratory services.
