Community Care Physicians, P.C. and CapitalCare Medical Group, LLC Consolidate
We are pleased to announce that we have consolidated with Community Care Physicians, P.C. (CCP) to form one integrated, multispecialty medical group. The consolidated group improves access and enhances the patient experience for the greater Capital Region. CapitalCare practices will function as divisions of Community Care Physicians. Care for patients will be uninterrupted, as the practitioners and locations will not change.
Both CCP and CapitalCare are multispecialty groups that have been longstanding organizations in this community; CCP was formed almost 35 years ago and CapitalCare 20 years ago. Physicians of each organization have provided care in this community for decades and each group has been recognized as a Top Workplace in the region as well as “Better Performing Practices” by the Medical Group Management Association. Both medical groups use Allscripts electronic health record and the FollowMyHealth patient portal solutions. CCP and CapitalCare are focused on innovation and deploying technology to improve the patient experience and provide greater access points for patients.
With this consolidation, CCP will continue to remain the largest, independent multispecialty medical group, now with over 1800 employees, more than 400 practitioners, and more than 70 practices across the region.
The consolidation expands access for patients and delivers a greater array of services. CCP will now offer over 30 different specialties, including: internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, developmental pediatrics, urgent care, medical imaging, audiology, behavioral health, bariatric medicine, dermatology, diabetes education, endocrinology, general surgery, hematology, interventional radiology, medical nutrition therapy, medical oncology, OB/GYN, occupational medicine, adult and pediatric neurology, nephrology, physical therapy, plastic surgery, podiatry, pulmonary and sleep medicine, radiation oncology, sports medicine, urology, vascular surgery, lab, and wellness services.
CCP is headquartered in Latham and governed by physicians. Shirish Parikh, MD, MBA, FACR, who is Founder, Chairman, and CEO of CCP, said “I’m excited at the opportunity to work even more collaboratively with local institutions and insurance companies to provide hassle free patient care. Joan Regan Hayner, CMPE, as the Chief Operating Officer, along with the strong combined management team, will use her expertise and skills to execute this collaboration to improve the patient and practitioner experience in a complex healthcare environment.”
