Miller Johnson represents Kalamazoo Emergency Associates in strategic partnership with American Physician Partners

Miller Johnson represented Kalamazoo Emergency Associates, P.C. in an investment transaction with American Physician Partners, LLC. American Physician Partners acquired a majority interest in Kalamazoo Emergency Associates as a result of the transaction and Kalamazoo Emergency Associates’ current ownership will remain in their current roles.

“After discussions with many potential emergency medicine groups, we chose American Physician Partners because their philosophy of patient-centered care closely mirrored ours,” said Eric Blackwell, MD, president of Kalamazoo Emergency Associates. “This partnership will strengthen our group’s ability to deliver exceptional care to the patients we have the privilege of serving in Southwest Michigan.”

Cascade Partners served as investment banker for Kalamazoo Emergency Associates. Dustin Daniels led Miller Johnson’s team of Neil Williams (M&A and Tax), Brittany Harden (M&A), Tim Gutwald (Healthcare) and Frank Berrodin (Employee Benefits).
