Modern Healthcare - - HEALTHCARE’S HOTTEST -

WHAT IT DOES: Pro­vides cus­tom­ized anes­the­sia man­age­ment for hos­pi­tals, am­bu­la­tory surgery cen­ters and of­fice-based sur­gi­cal prac­tices in 16 states. HOW IT GREW:

Som­nia’s founders—Pres­i­dent and CEO Marc Koch and Dr. Robert Gold­stein, ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent and chief med­i­cal of­fi­cer—and the com­pany’s se­nior lead­ers are ac­tively in­volved with ev­ery one of its clients.

They are able to be so hands-on be­cause the com­pany has re­mained, through its 16 years of ex­is­tence, 100% pri­vately owned and op­er­ated. “This pro­vides broad dis­cre­tion with­out con­flict be­tween op­er­a­tions and fi­nances,” says Koch, in an e-mail to Mod­ern Health­care. “We can fo­cus on stel­lar clin­i­cal out­comes, and only stel­lar clin­i­cal out­comes, rather than earn­ings per share.” Its clin­i­cal out­comes have been tracked and driven by the com­pany’s Clin­i­cal Qual­ity Ex­cel­lence pro­gram, which mon­i­tors all of the com­pany’s clin­i­cal data and has helped Som­nia main­tain a high level of re­sults while the com­pany expands.
