Partnerships with Dermatology Associates of Knoxville and East Tennessee Dermatology Group Build on ADM’s Expansion
Annapolis, MD,– Anne Arundel Dermatology Management (“ADM” or the “Company”), a portfolio company of New MainStream Capital (“NMS”), announced that it has partnered with Dermatology Associates of Knoxville, P.C. (“DAK”). Founded in 1977, DAK is one of the largest private practice groups of board-certified dermatologists in Tennessee. Led by Drs. Edward Primka and Drew Miller, DAK has been providing outstanding patient care in general, surgical and cosmetic dermatology services to the Knoxville, Tennessee market for over 41 years. Drs. Primka and Miller will continue to lead DAK and further build upon ADM’s expansion into Tennessee and will now benefit from the administrative support provided by Anne Arundel Dermatology Management.
ADM also completed the affiliation of East Tennessee Dermatology Group, P.C. (“ETDG”), an Alcoa, Tennessee-based provider of surgical and general dermatology services, led by Dr. Paul Unkefer.
“We are very excited about partnering with two leading practices in the Knoxville and East Tennessee markets. We continue to execute on our strategy of expanding our presence in Tennessee which has been a focus of ours since we entered the state last year. These two affiliations have solidified our leadership position in Knoxville and East Tennessee and we look forward to building further density in these areas,” said Scott Mahosky, Chief Executive Officer of ADM.
Dr. Edward Primka commented, “Anne Arundel Dermatology entered the Knoxville market last year and has very quickly made a positive impact amongst our peers and other groups in the area. DAK evaluated a number of different partners to assist us with our next phase of growth and ultimately concluded that Anne Arundel Dermatology was going to be the group to take us to the next level. They understand the importance of clinical quality and putting the patient and physician needs first.”
David Peterson, Principal at NMS, added, “DAK and ETDG are two premier groups in the Knoxville and East Tennessee markets and are led by a group of experienced physicians who are known for excellent patient care. This transaction quickly doubles the Company’s footprint in Tennessee since entering the market in July 2017 and we look forward to partnering with other dermatology groups in the area. With the addition of DAK and ETDG, ADM is now the largest provider of dermatology support services in East Tennessee and Maryland, supporting 38 clinic locations and 90 providers across three states.”
As part of the affiliation, both DAK and ETDG will benefit from ADM’s extensive administrative and support services, including investments in information technology and electronic medical records, revenue cycle management, payer credentialing and contracting, compliance and reporting, human resources, business development and finance.
These new affiliations follow the recently announced recapitalization with Pantheon to accelerate the Company’s growth strategy, which includes three additional affiliations scheduled to occur in Q1 2018.
