NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Physician group practice company IPC The Hospitalist Company Inc. said Wednesday it bought Premier Hospitalists for an undisclosed amount.

Premier is based in St. Louis and has an annual volume of about 20,000 patient encounters.

"We are pleased that this well-established practice has chosen to join IPC," said R. Jeffrey Taylor, president and chief operating officer of IPC. "In an increasingly challenging and uncertain health care environment, we are seeing more and more local independent groups looking to partner with IPC as a means to further grow their practices."
