5 December 2018 - US-based healthcare provider Ascentist Management LLC and Ascentist Physicians Group LLC has reached agreement to merge with Head and Neck Surgical Associates of Overland Park, Kansas, the company said.

The transaction, effective January 1, 2019, will further expand Ascentist's position as the largest physician owned otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) practice in the Kansas City region.

Head and Neck Surgical Associates will become a division of Ascentist and continue to practice under its current name and from its current locations on the campuses of Menorah Medical Center and Research Medical Center.

Combined with the other division of Ascentist, ENT Associates of Greater Kansas City, Ascentist will serve 12 local hospitals and four rural hospitals from 12 locations in the Kansas City Region.

The combined practice will have over 100 employees, 17 otolaryngology physicians and 15 professionally licensed audiologists serving over 45,000 patient encounters per year.

Head and Neck Surgical Associates was founded in 1955 and has served patients in the Kansas City region for more than 63 years.

Physicians Dr. David Rudman, Dr. Mark Maslan, Dr. Thomas Eyen, and Dr. Brad Seaman will be joining Ascentist Physicians Group when the merger becomes effective January 1, 2019.

Ascentist Physicians Group LLC, doing business as ENT Associates of Greater Kansas City, is the largest physician led ENT practice in the Kansas City area.

In 2018, ENT Associates of Greater Kansas City PC restructured its organization creating the Ascentist Group.

This is the second corporate merger for the group. In 2015, the group purchased Professional Hearing Center, a local audiology practice owned by Dr. Kelly Spiller.
