Years of Industry Experience

Alliance is a physician-owned Ambulatory Surgery Center management and development company located in Atlanta, GA. We provide management services to Ambulatory Surgery Centers with a physician-focused strategy. Alliance management brings stability, reliability and support to existing surgery centers.

Managed Excellence with Continuous Improvement

Alliance is intentional about managing excellence into all of its partner centers.  This commitment goes beyond ensuring all facilities are The Joint Commission or AAAHC accredited, and extends to the belief that through collaboration, physicians practicing in the Alliance system will practice with confidence and will have the premier tools and systems to deliver the best possible care to their patients.  This is accomplished through thoughtful investments into support systems and programs specifically designed to be attentive and responsive to physician needs, while providing the data and information needed to better inform physicians’ decisions.

This process not only serves the current system well, but is also applied to De novo and merger and acquisition transactions.  Alliance’s careful and considerate integration of new partners, to include their best-practice strategies, is the linchpin of its success.  This proprietary bi-directional process, named the Alliance Way, welcomes new ideas and helps to quickly integrate operations and culture, to form an even stronger organization.  This philosophy and program has catapulted Alliance into being the Southeast leader in interventional pain services management.

Management & Development

Centralized Support with Decentralized Leadership

To provide life changing care to patients, Alliance recognizes that physicians need the proper support to allow them to solely focus on that mission.  That’s why, in addition to providing efficient, centralized support for facility-essential services, Alliance also locally deploys Regional Administrators.  This professional investment is made to ensure each facility and physician has the real-time information, resources and tools necessary to deliver the safest and best care.  The Administrators are accountable to the facilities and the physicians they serve, and are the conduit to Alliance’s central support, which offers:

  • Regulatory Application and Approval (Including Certificate of Need)
  • Performance Review and Analysis
  • Facility Accreditation Planning, Support and Execution
  • Purchasing and Supply Cost Management
  • Third Party Payor Contracting
  • Billing and Collections
  • Compliance Training and Review
  • Human Resource Administration including Physician Recruitment
  • Survey and Accreditation Assistance
  • Facility Planning and Construction
  • Facility Maintenance
  • Customer Care (Professionally staffed central call center)
  • Marketing and Business Development


A key factor to Alliance’s growth is its process of identifying and/or verifying co-beneficial partnership opportunities.  The driving factor for any transaction is based on expected post-transaction syndication, integration and growth for all parties involved.  Alliance transactions are transparent, open and collaborative and consider all business aspects and include work to ensure each party’s interests are addressed and met.   All decisions are made based on the goal of long-term success.

Facility Syndication

Alliance Spine and Pain does not manage physicians.  This is evidenced by the fact that the surgery centers are owned and managed by physicians. Physician input is a critical component of every Alliance strategy and decision.

An effective medical staff is also vital to the successful operation of Alliance ASCs. Alliance works with each of its partner facilities to find the best arrangements necessary to make the center work as smoothly, efficiently and profitably as possible.


Through a process called The Alliance Way, Alliance exercises its skill integrating new partners and surgery centers into the Alliance system.  Utilizing the Alliance Way, best practices are gleaned from every level within the transaction entity and  are seamlessly woven into Alliance’s cultural and operations framework, creating an even stronger organization.
