July 22, 2018 - Minnesota-based professional management services company Aalto, LLC (d/b/a “Aülto”) announced it has acquired substantially all of the assets of Dr. Jay Lou’s Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology Clinic ("AAIC"). AAIC is a well-established and highly regarded provider of allergy and asthma specialty medical services with clinic locations in Shoreview and Stillwater, Minnesota. Aülto will provide its clinical and administrative support services to AAIC’s providers, staff, and patients with an emphasis on improving the quality of patient care and overall patient experience.
Aülto’s management team is enthusiastic about the partnership. Russ Rosckes, CEO of Aülto, emphasizes that “AAIC and Aülto are a natural fit for each other. Both organizations are aligned that the highest quality of patient care and experience is best accomplished in an independent setting”. Jon Farnsworth, COO and General Counsel of Aülto, noted “physicians want to remain independent, but don’t expect it to be a reality in today’s healthcare environment. Too often independent medical clinics feel like their only option is to be acquired by big health care. Aülto is excited to offer an alternative practice model that will enable AAIC to remain independent while providing the highest level of patient care.”
