HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 09/03/14 -- Northstar Healthcare Inc. (TSX: NHC) today announced that it has reached an agreement with First Surgical Partners Holdings, Inc. ("First Surgical") to form a new entity to own and operate the Houston, Texas hospital and surgical center businesses owned by First Surgical.
Under the Agreement, Northstar and First Surgical will form a new limited liability company to assume the operations of First Street Hospital and First Street Surgical Center. The new entity will be owned 51% by Northstar and 49% by First Surgical. Northstar will manage the operations of the hospital and surgical center under a management agreement. Northstar will contribute $7.5 million to the new entity which will be raised by an anticipated brokered private placement. Closing of the transaction is conditional on the successful completion of the private placement and other customary conditions.
"This transaction with First Surgical will be transformative to Northstar," said Dr. Donald Kramer, Chief Executive Officer of Northstar. "In the past year, Northstar has developed MRI centers, urgent care facilities, an Arizona surgical center, a network of primary care physicians and very strong patient recruitment programs. First Surgical is regarded in Houston as having the finest facilities with the most prestigious physicians. First Surgical's inclusion into Northstar's developing healthcare system will now allow for substantial revenues from patients who require more complex surgery than can be done on an outpatient basis."
Dr. Jacob Varon, Chairman of First Surgical stated that: "Northstar's reputation as an innovative revenue producing partner through marketing efforts is a perfect fit for First Surgical."
"These facilities will help Northstar diversify and expand our revenue streams," said Harry Fleming, President of Northstar. "This transaction is in line with our efforts to create unique revenue generation platforms in the healthcare industry. We are extremely confident that we can materially affect First Surgical's $28 million revenue stream with the Northstar model."
