Surgery Partners confident in long-term growth, despite 15.9% COVID-19-related drop in revenue

Nashville, Tenn.-based Surgery Partners posted a 15.9 percent decrease in revenue for the second quarter of 2020, attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic and delays around elective procedures.

Company CEO Eric Evans said: "The COVID-19 pandemic has affected operations unlike anything else in recent history. Surgical volumes bottomed out in April but recovered to near 2019 levels by the end of June, a trend that has continued into July and early August scheduling. This recovery is a testament to the efforts of our team members and the value of our short-stay surgical model to the healthcare ecosystem."

Board Chair Wayne DeVeydt said, "We are cautiously optimistic that we can maintain our current trajectory for the second half of 2020 and we remain confident in our long-term growth model."
