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 11 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.
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.
