LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Partners in Primary Care announced today details of the first phase of its major three-year expansion project. The initial stage involves opening 20 new senior-focused primary care centers over the next year. The expansion includes two new markets, with plans to open eight primary care centers in Las Vegas, and two in the Shreveport-Bossier City, La. area. The company will also triple its Houston footprint with 10 additional centers.
Partners in Primary Care, a subsidiary of Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), is part of a family of senior-focused, primary care centers that deliver comprehensive, personalized care to 35,000 patients from many different Medicare Advantage health plans. Earlier this year, the company announced it had formed a joint venture with Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe that is expected to more than double Partners in Primary Care’s footprint of senior-focused primary care centers over the next three years.
“We’re thrilled to see the communities we serve continue to embrace our dedicated approach to senior-focused health care, and we’re excited to bring our comprehensive, personalized primary care to more seniors,” said Renee Buckingham, president of Humana’s Care Delivery Organization. “We know this would not be possible without our dedicated team of clinicians and employees who work hard every day to help the seniors we serve live healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives.”
Operating under an integrated, comprehensive, value-based care model, Partners in Primary Care offers a unique health care experience to seniors, many of whom live in underserved areas. All Partners in Primary Care centers are staffed by board-certified physicians and care teams who have been specially trained to treat the senior population. Physicians spend more time with their patients, and care teams focus on creating personalized care plans designed to help patients achieve their best possible health. This includes helping patients with social, behavioral and financial needs.
Partners in Primary Care currently operates 48 primary care centers located throughout Kansas, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and Florida. This includes five centers in Houston, one of the 2020 expansion markets.
