MedHQ Partners with Avanza Healthcare Strategies

MedHQ of Westchester, Illinois, has acquired Avanza Healthcare Strategies of Austin, Texas, according to a release. Following the acquisition, Avanza will continue to operate independently.

Joan Dentler founded Avanza in 2007 to consult with health systems, hospitals and physicians seeking to migrate services to the outpatient setting. The company offers customized engagements and is recognized for its expertise supporting hospital-physician joint-venture ASCs.

“Our clients benefit from our growing suite of back-office business services, which now extends to include Avanza’s outpatient healthcare advisory offerings,” said MedHQ Chief Executive Officer Tom Jacobs, in the release. “We are proud to partner with Joan and the Avanza team. The partnership will positively impact healthcare clients nationwide, helping them focus on what matters most: delivering excellent patient care.”

Founded in 2003, MedHQ provides consulting and technology-enabled expert services for outpatient healthcare.

“We have long admired MedHQ and the culture its team has built while scaling their business and serving clients exceptionally well,” Dentler said in the release. “Our organizations have grown and adapted in the constantly evolving ASC market. Now that we are more closely aligned, Avanza and MedHQ can work to expand our services into the broader outpatient sector while continuing to serve ASCs nationwide.”

With the acquisition of Avanza, MedHQ grows its number of outpatient healthcare experts who provide guidance to hospitals, physicians and ASCs across the US, according to the release.
