North American Partners in Anesthesia Announces Strategic Alliance With Illinois-Based Gateway Spine & Pain Physicians

MELVILLE, NY--(Marketwired - July 08, 2014) - North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA), the largest single specialty anesthesia and perioperative management company in the United States, and Gateway Spine & Pain Physicians, located in Bolingbrook and Hinsdale, IL have announced a strategic alliance that continues NAPA's Midwest expansion and brings together two world-class healthcare provider organizations. The partnership will increase access to quality pain care throughout the Chicagoland area through the development of new hospital and ASC-based pain management locations. Services will be provided under the auspices of NAPA's pain division, North American Partners in Pain Management (NAPPM). The initiative will be led by Dr. John Hong, Gateway's founder and medical director.

"Millions of Americans live with chronic pain every day -- making pain a serious reality for many," said John Di Capua, MD, CEO of NAPA. "Through our relationship with Gateway, we will be able to better serve our patients by offering them a broader range of healthcare services. Together, NAPA and Gateway look to transform the way that individuals with pain receive the care they need and deserve."

"There continues to be a need for accessible, high quality pain management care in our communities," said John Hong, MD. "With the combined expertise and resources of NAPA and Gateway, our goal is to create a comprehensive, multimodal pain management program that is able to address the needs of those suffering from the most complicated, debilitating painful conditions."

Dr. John K. Hong is board certified in pain management and anesthesiology by the American Board of Anesthesiology. He is a graduate of Cornell University in New York and Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston. After a surgery internship, he completed an anesthesia residency at Rush University Medical Center. He furthered his education in interventional pain management with fellowship training at the University of Illinois Medical Center.
