NorthStar Anesthesia, a national anesthesia management company headquartered in Arlington, has secured a significant investment from TPG Growth, the middle market and growth investment platform of Fort Worth-based TPG.
TPG Growth now has a controlling stake in NorthStar.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.


Matthew Hobart, partner at TPG Growth, said his company expects to see continued consolidation in the anesthesia management industry, with NorthStar at the forefront of this trend.

TPG Growth has $3.5 billion under management and is backed by the resources of TPG, which has $55.3 billion in assets under management.
Founded in 2004, NorthStar Anesthesia operates in eight states and currently employs more than 600 providers.
