This strategy has resulted in significant growth over the last three years, expanding from eight ASCs to 26, growing volume 155% and growing revenue by 475%. The Banner Atlas joint venture expects to double in size and own and manage over 50 ASCs by the end of 2025.

“We’re excited to expand our partnership with Banner,” said Atlas Healthcare Partners CEO Aric Burke. “Our multi-level partnership with Banner serves as an innovative model for other health systems seeking to develop and implement a fully integrated ASC strategy that aligns all parties; health system, management company, physicians, patients, and communities.”
