We are pleased to welcome clinicians and staff from PMG Physician Associates, P.C. to Atrius Health. PMG is a large, primary-care driven, multi-specialty practice comprised of 20 physicians, 12 advanced practice clinicians, and 134 other employees based in Plymouth, MA. The organization serves over 34,000 patients across eight clinical locations in the Greater Plymouth area and Cape Cod.
“Atrius Health and PMG share a vision to deliver high-quality coordinated care that emphasizes longstanding and trusting relationships with patients,” said Steven Strongwater, MD, president and CEO of Atrius Health. “We are delighted to have PMG’s exceptional clinicians and staff join our team. Together, we can provide increased access to preventive care, management of chronic disease, and programs that keep care in the homes of those we serve. Many of our current patients living in and around Plymouth stand to benefit from these more convenient locations.”
While PMG clinicians and staff will become employees of Atrius Health, PMG patients will continue to see their providers in their current locations. Plymouth is a booming hub with a population forecasted to exceed 75,000 by 2030, putting Atrius Health and PMG in a unique position to provide the community with easy access to cost-effective primary care and coordinated specialty services. In addition to retaining its locations and hospital affiliation with Beth Israel Deaconess-Plymouth, PMG Physician Associates will keep its legacy name at all of its sites while changing its logo and website to reflect the Atrius Health connection.
“We are excited for the opportunity to expand our capabilities in service of our patients and look forward to building upon an already strong foundation of primary and multi-specialty care for residents of the Greater Plymouth area and the residents we serve on the Cape,” said Peter McIver, MD, President of PMG Physician Associates. “As part of Atrius Health, we will have access to population health programs, best-in-class information technology infrastructure, and care coordination services that ease transitions of care for our patients.”
Having signed definitive agreements this week, PMG Physician Associates will join Atrius Health in June 2017 pending regulatory approvals.
