Specialty Networks, a group purchasing organization (GPO) serving independent medical practices, pharmaceutical companies, and medical device companies and backed by Linden Capital Partners, has bought Gastrologix LLC, a GI-focused GPO.

Specialty Networks looks to bring its suite of data and technology services to Gastrologix members, aiming to drive positive patient outcomes and create value for independent GI practices and industry partners.

“Our shared mission to help improve patient care by strengthening independent GI practices makes this acquisition a great fit for Specialty Networks,” says David Coury, executive chairman of Specialty Networks. “The acquisition of Gastrologix allows Specialty Networks to help GI physicians deliver exceptional patient care, remain independent, and provide a valuable alternative to the more expensive care provided in the acute setting.”

Haverford Healthcare Advisors served as M&A advisor, and Saxton & Stump served as legal advisor to Gastrologix. Katten Muchin Rosenman LLC served as legal advisor to Specialty Networks.
