Tenet Healthcare and subsidiary United Surgical Partners International are expanding their ownership of ambulatory surgery centers, buying 92 from SurgCenter Development.

The $1.2 billion deal expands USPI’s reach into high-growth regions in Arizona, Florida and Texas and includes an attractive case mix of service lines, including musculoskeletal care for total joint and spine procedures, Tenet said in a statement.

The transaction will further diversify Tenet’s mix with a larger portion being produced by its higher-margin ambulatory portfolio. 

SurgCenter Development owns a minority interest of approximately 39% on average in 86 of the ambulatory surgery centers and a majority interest of approximately 55% on average in six of the ASCs, Tenet said in a released statement. 

Tenet plans to finance the transaction through the issuance of first-lien secured notes. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter.
