About Us

2013 Revenue by SpecialtyWe believe aligning with NSH is the right long-term strategy.  NSH is a forward-thinking and decisive leader in managing surgical facilities.  We are trusted operators with experience building successful partnerships through value-creating growth.

NSH is a leader in owning, operating, and partnering with physicians in the short-stay surgical hospital and ambulatory surgery center industry.  Founded in 1998 by current members of its leadership team, NSH has grown to a portfolio of 20 surgical facilities across 12 states.  In early 2011, Irving Place Capital ("IPC"), a private equity firm based in New York City with over $4 billion of assets under management, acquired NSH.  The affiliation with IPC strengthened NSH's ability to continue its growth strategy, which includes forming new partnerships with physician-owned specialty hospitals and surgical centers as well as supporting growth opportunities within its existing facilities.  NSH has a successful track record in partnering with facilities that have developed a strong market presence and are led by high-quality surgeons. 

The clinical concentration of NSH’s facilities is primarily in the musculoskeletal area and includes orthopedics and spine.  In addition, NSH supports general, bariatric, urology, ENT, GYN, ophthalmology, and plastic surgery.  Many NSH facilities have been awarded “Center of Excellence” designations due to exceptional clinical outcomes and high patient satisfaction scores.  Notably, several facilities are ranked first or second in patient satisfaction by HCAHPS in the states in which they operate. 

NSH firmly believes in and advocates a physician-centered operating philosophy.  This has proven itself to bring significant value to NSH physician partners through the company’s superior capabilities in operations, purchasing, and contracting.  NSH is highly accomplished in strategic execution, physician recruitment, and the delivery of a host of management services.

Achieve 100% patient, physician, partner, and employee satisfaction while providing the highest quality of surgical care.
