KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- TeamHealth (www.teamhealth.com) expands its presence in Southwest Florida with the acquisition of Naples-based Emergency Physicians of Naples, LLC (EPN). Since January 2002, EPN has held an exclusive contract with NCH Healthcare System to staff the emergency facilities at the Downtown Naples Hospital, North Naples Hospital, and the Marco Healthcare Clinic.

Additionally, all of the physicians and physician assistants will remain with EPN.

"Our group is excited to become a part of TeamHealth because both organizations share the same values and vision," states Dr. Lewis. "We believe this partnership will improve our practice and enhance our ability to deliver better care to the patients in our community."

"We were attracted to the EPN practice because their commitment to patient care and service excellence is closely aligned with TeamHealth's, and we were also impressed with the clinical and leadership caliber of the physicians," states Lynn Massingale, M.D., FACEP, Executive Chairman, TeamHealth. "As evidence of their commitment to the NCH Healthcare System, two of the physicians serve on its board of directors and chair other committees within the system. We are equally proud to add the prestigious NCH Healthcare System to our list of clients. We look forward to working with EPN's emergency physicians and physician assistants, as well as the NCH Healthcare System, to serve the emergent and urgent care needs of the Naples and Collier County communities."
