History edit

In December 2016, Envison and AMSURG merged, and shortly thereafter the company's stock replaced Legg Mason in the S&P 500 index.[4]

In 2017, the company's subsidiary EmCare, came under scrutiny due to healthcare consumers being shocked by high medical bills from Envision's out-of-network healthcare providers.[5][6][7] In August 2017, Envision sold its ambulance unit, American Medical Response, for $2.4 billion to KKR, which it subsequently merged with a similar company it had already owned.[8] In 2017, the company reported a net loss of $232.5 million on revenue of $7.8 billion.[9]

In June 2018, KKR announced that it was acquiring the rest of Envision for $9.9 billion, including the assumption or repayment of debt.[9]

In February 2020, Envision appointed James Rechtin as CEO.[10] In April 2020, they were considering bankruptcy.[11] In October 2020, it was announced that Cigna and Envision had renewed their agreement to include Envision's clinicians as in-network providers to Cigna's members.[12]

In September 2022, Moody's warned that Envision Healthcare could be at risk of bankruptcy.[13]

On May 15, 2023, Envision Healthcare filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.[14]
