NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Aug. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IPC The Hospitalist Company, Inc.

HOA has built a strong and stable business through a combination of health plan and hospital contracting. Our infrastructure, especially our IPC-Link(R) technology, will contribute significantly to HOA's ability to deliver excellent quality patient care, while adding value to its existing clients. We see near-term opportunities to leverage HOA's relationships as well as implement our full-time hospitalist model in select Florida facilities."

Isela Sotolongo, President and CEO of HOA, who will serve as Executive Director of the newly-formed IPC Southeast Florida region, commented, "We are excited to join IPC and look forward to pursuing the growth opportunities that will result from joining forces with this dynamic company.
