"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.
