The Bloom Organization (“Bloom”) served as exclusive sell-side investment banker and advisor to Antheia Gynecology (“Antheia”) in its acquisition by Summit Health (“Summit”), the largest independent multispecialty, outpatient-focused physician group in the United States.  The transaction closed on April 24, 2023.

Antheia Gynecology operates in East Windsor, New Jersey and specializes in individualized and attentive gynecologic ambulatory and minimally invasive surgical care.  The practice was founded by Dr. Helen Simigiannis, a board-certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist (OBGYN), whose expertise and market presence were highly attractive to Summit Health as the organization continues its geographic and specialty expansion.

The practice joins one of the largest independent provider groups in the United States, formed by the transformative combination of Summit Health-CityMD and VillageMD earlier this year.  The merged medical group’s network of 4,100+ providers across nearly 700 locations in 26 markets serves millions of patients, bringing together Summit Health-CityMD’s expertise delivering multispecialty and connected care and VillageMD’s value-based care model. 

Dr. Helen Simigiannis stated, “In an ever-changing healthcare environment, it became abundantly clear that we needed a trusted advisor in our corner to navigate our options and the complexities of a transaction while achieving the best possible outcome for the practice. Bloom understood our goals, educated us, advocated for us, and streamlined what proved to be a very complicated process.  Ultimately, we identified the right partner in Summit Health and are looking forward to what the future holds.”

The Bloom Organization’s efforts on the transaction were led by Hallie Berk, Vice President.  Lani Dornfeld of Brach Eichler served as the seller’s legal counsel.

As one of the most experienced investment banking firms in healthcare services, this marks the 8th closed transaction for the Bloom team in what has proven to be a very robust start to 2023.  The Bloom Organization remains extremely active advising independent physician groups across all specialties, including women’s health, oncology, cardiology, urology, gastroenterology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, primary care, along with value-based provider networks, ambulatory surgery centers, among others.
