Ingenovis Health, Inc. (“Ingenovis” or the “Company”), a leading healthcare workforce solutions company backed by private investment firms Cornell Capital and Trilantic North America, today announced that it has acquired VISTA Staffing Solutions (“VISTA”) from Envision Physician Services. VISTA is a leading locum tenens healthcare staffing company with an extensive network of physicians and advanced practitioners nationwide serving hospitals, clinics, medical practices, and government agencies.
Formed in early 2021 by the combination of trustaff, Fastaff Travel Nursing®, U.S. Nursing Corporation® and CardioSolution, Ingenovis Health is one of the fastest-growing providers of healthcare workforce solutions in North America. The Company uses a holistic approach that combines shared service capabilities with enhanced technology to staff critical talent shortages within healthcare facilities and systems nationwide.
Founded in 1990 and headquartered in Cottonwood Heights, Utah, VISTA has established itself as a valued staffing partner to healthcare service providers by optimizing physician staffing and ensuring quality and continuity of patient care. The acquisition of VISTA further diversifies Ingenovis’ service offerings and significantly extends the Company’s ability to solve complex staffing challenges in the physician and advanced practitioner category.
“One of the most critical nationwide challenges we will face in the coming years will be the shortage of experienced healthcare providers, and we are doing everything we can to be part of the solution,” said Bart Valdez, CEO of Ingenovis Health. “By adding VISTA to the Ingenovis Health family, we expand our ability to offer comprehensive solutions and provide critically needed physicians and advanced practitioners to a broader market of clients nationwide. We are excited to collaborate with VISTA’s talented management team and benefit from their deep network of talented providers.”
The VISTA brand will become part of the Ingenovis Physician Services division, led by President Sean Ebner. Specializing in the placement of locum tenens as well as permanent placement providers, VISTA complements the Company’s physician services offerings which currently include highly specialized physician outsourced talent solutions by the CardioSolution brand.
“Adding on the industry-leading locum tenens expertise of the VISTA brand significantly increases our capabilities to serve our customers’ physician and advanced practitioner talent needs,” said Ebner. “The VISTA team brings extensive expertise to recruit and deploy highly qualified providers to virtually all types of clinical environments.”
“Against the backdrop of a turbulent healthcare market, the healthcare systems are in strong need of locum tenens solutions,” said Andrea Nelson, Chief Operating Officer of VISTA. “We are excited to join Ingenovis as we work to meet this growing demand, ensure continuity of care, and provide the support and resources necessary to reduce burnout among healthcare workers. Ingenovis, with the unwavering support of Cornell Capital and Trilantic North America, has an industry-leading management team, and we look forward to partnering with them to add new capabilities, expand geographic reach, and deliver additional services while ensuring high quality patient care.”
“Today’s acquisition of VISTA marks the next milestone in Ingenovis’ accelerated growth strategy to address the staffing challenges in the healthcare industry,” said Stephen Trevor, Partner at Cornell Capital. “VISTA’s established base of commercial and government clients is complementary to Ingenovis’ client profile, and their direct relationships with leading healthcare systems will broaden and strengthen the Ingenovis platform. Together, Ingenovis and VISTA are well positioned to grow market share and continue providing solutions for clients across the healthcare industry.”
