CortiCare completed the acquisition of Physician Ancillary Services, LLC (“PAS”) as a part of its plans to expand services into the ambulatory EEG space.

Since its founding, PAS has grown its services to cover all of New England, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Arkansas, North Carolina, Maryland, and Delaware.
Post-transaction, the combined company is positioned as a leading provider of both Ambulatory and Tele-EEG services for both acute care settings and private practices. Hope Mago, Principal, led HCAP Partners’ investment and will join the board of directors as part of the transaction.
“We are excited to have an opportunity to build a national EEG provider of high-quality neuromonitoring services”, stated Brad Westcott, CortiCare’s President and CEO. “The acquisition of PAS allows us to combine our hospital inpatient capabilities with their outpatient services for a complete set of neuromonitoring tools for our clients. Together with our Cloud EEG Platform, CortiCare can now offer neuromonitoring services worldwide to small rural neurologists and large academic centers alike. We look forward to working with the HCAP team as we continue to execute on this strategy.”
