AMN Healthcare acquires virtual care platform for $42M

AMN Healthcare, a medical staffing firm based in Texas, has acquired a virtual care company that specializes in home health and outpatient care for $42 million.

The acquisition of Synzi, which was completed in April, expands AMN’s home health and outpatient care presence.

“To ensure AMN is well-prepared to continue evolving and delivering on our promise of total talent solutions, we are increasing investments in our team and technologies, in particular our digital capabilities,” CEO Susan R. Salka said in a statement. “At the same time, we are making greater investments in building talent solutions for all reaches of the care continuum. Last month, we were thrilled to close the acquisition of Synzi, adding technology-enabled virtual care solutions for the outpatient and home health markets, where more healthcare will be delivered in the future.”

The company reported a 47% increase in consolidated revenue for the first quarter of 2021, reaching $886 million.

AMN Healthcare was named the largest healthcare staffing firm in the U.S. in 2017.
