Torrance, Calif. (PRWEB) June 24, 2009 -- Robert J. Margolis, MD, CEO of HealthCare Partners Affiliates Medical Group, a Torrance, California-based healthcare organization with operations in California, Nevada, Florida, and Utah, today announced the acquisition of Northridge Medical Group, Inc., an independent physicians association (IPA) providing care to 24,000 managed care patients in the San Fernando Valley area of Southern California.

The transaction increases the number of patients cared for by HealthCare Partners in California to over 680,000, and creates patient access to over 1,200 primary care physicians throughout the Los Angeles Metro area.

"Northridge Medical Group strengthens our geographic coverage in the San Fernando Valley and expands our ability to provide quality, cost-effective healthcare for a growing number of Californians," said Robert J. Margolis, MD. "In today's healthcare environment, physicians who work within a coordinated care model and utilize best practices and information technology in patient care have the greatest ability to deliver appropriate care to patients, especially frail seniors with complex medical conditions."

Mary McCormack, CEO of Northridge Medical Group, and now Regional Vice President for HealthCare Partners' San Fernando Valley region, stated, "Our organizations are a good fit, especially in our respective commitments to providing quality, coordinated care with a focus on prevention. Northridge Medical Group will both benefit from and contribute to HealthCare Partners' evidence-based medical practice."

The two companies' shared vision and commitment to providing excellent patient care create a natural synergy in expanding HealthCare Partners' network of IPA primary care physicians in Southern California.
