Yale New Haven Health System and Northeast Medical Group (NEMG) signed an asset purchase agreement with PriMed, a physician practice based primarily in Fairfield County, on Feb. 14. NEMG will acquire PriMed’s assets and operate the practices under NEMG’s organizational structure.
More than 100 PriMed providers and 500 staff members will join NEMG. Over the next several weeks, we will work to transition PriMed staff and operations to NEMG. Due diligence is in process and will be completed prior to the expected go-live June 1.
While this represents a major shift in the way YNHHS currently delivers healthcare, it also represents a unique opportunity to address the needs of patients. Given the growing demands on physician practices related to healthcare reform, practices and physician groups across the country are seeking innovative ways to expand access, enhance quality and create economic efficiencies in the delivery of care. PriMed intends to retain the strengths of its practices, most notably the physicians and staff, and to maintain existing relationships with local partners – such as its referring physicians and local hospitals.
