ST. LOUIS, March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Navvis & Company (St. Louis), a leading consultancy in the health services industry, announced today the acquisition of Tampa-based Physician Executive Management Center (PEMC).
Physician Executive Management Center is the nation's only executive recruitment firm focused solely on recruitment and placement of physicians in executive leadership positions. The company was founded in 1983, originally as a joint venture with the American College of Physician Executives, and later became an independent firm.
Its founders – Jennifer Grebenschikoff and David Kirschman – are widely respected experts on physician executive search, career counseling and compensation. They also bring considerable experience in health care management, having served as executives in large physician organizations, health plans and health systems.
"The expertise and capabilities of Physician Executive Management Center will bring enormous value to Navvis & Company clients in addressing the increasing demand for executive physician leadership," said Michael Farris, Chairman and CEO of Navvis & Company.
"Health systems addressing physician alignment, quality, safety and business performance improvement are increasingly seeking qualified physician leaders for C-suite, clinical operations and physician enterprise positions," said PEMC's Grebenschikoff. "We believe our expertise in this area is aligned to the strategy, leadership and performance counsel that Navvis & Company provides to health systems."
Navvis & Company provides management consulting services to health systems and physician organizations. The origin of the firm can be traced to the mid 1980s when The Farris Group was founded to support hospitals in the acquisition and management of physician practices.
Since then, Navvis & Company has evolved into a diversified professional services group with expertise in strategy aimed at building successful health systems, forging physician alliances, and optimizing organizational performance.
In addition to its St. Louis headquarters, Navvis & Company operates offices in Orlando, Florida, Norfolk, Virginia, and now in Tampa, Florida where Physician Executive Management Center will retain operations.
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
