HealthCare Partners Nevada Acquires
Internal Medicine Associates
brings 9 primary care providers to HealthCare Partners’ integrated network
LAS VEGAS (Sept. 2, 2015) – HealthCare Partners Nevada, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners (NYSE:DVA) and a leading physician-run network of primary, specialty and urgent care providers in Southern Nevada, announced today the organization has acquired Internal Medicine Associates (IMA), a group of primary care providers with three locations in Southern Nevada.
Effective Sept. 1, all IMA physicians will operate in conjunction with HealthCare Partners Nevada, providing an extended network of providers to community members in Southern Nevada. Although the acquisition will result in a new name and brand for IMA, the practice’s nine primary care providers in Southern Nevada will continue to offer patients the quality care they know and expect from the organization. Patients will continue to have access to their IMA providers at the organization’s existing locations.
“I’ve spent a significant amount of time in the Nevada market recently, and am confident the collaboration with IMA provides the Las Vegas Valley with improved access to comprehensive, coordinated and patient-focused care,” said Dennis Kogod, president of HealthCare Partners.
“We look forward to working with such a high-quality practice as we expand our network of providers in Southern Nevada.”
As a result of this acquisition, HealthCare Partners Nevada offers a total of approximately 310 primary care providers. IMA has served Las Vegas for 26 years, providing services in three clinic locations. All of IMA’s doctors are board certified in internal medicine.
“The doctors and staff at IMA are pleased to join forces with the great team at HealthCare Partners,” said Dr. Mahfoud Beajow with IMA. “We will continue to endeavor to provide the highest quality care and serve the needs of patients in our community.”
"Healthcare Partners Nevada welcomes the physicians from IMA into our leading medical organization," said Dr. H. Bard Coats, executive vice president of HealthCare Partners Nevada. "IMA offers highly regarded internal medicine experts who will complement our team's commitment to providing high-quality health care to all of our patients in Nevada."
