Together Women’s Health Accelerates Growth in Michigan through an Exciting Affiliation with Women First OB/GYN Center

DETROIT--()--Together Women’s Health (“TWH” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce it has completed an affiliation with Women First OB/GYN Center (“Women First”). The affiliation represents the company’s fifth in Michigan and twelfth affiliation overall. Together Women’s Health is a women’s health-focused management service organization, backed by Shore Capital Partners, committed to partnering with leading physicians to build a premier network of women’s health services in the U.S. TWH’s affiliate network consists of 12 practices with over 100 providers delivering women’s health services at over 30 locations throughout Michigan, Illinois, Colorado, Alabama, and Mississippi.

Women First, the leading all-female women’s health practice in Metro-Detroit with locations in Royal Oak and Birmingham, Michigan, is a 17-provider group led by the physician team of Drs. Andrea Schiller, Paula Fishbaugh, Lolonya Moore, Jennifer Kaiser-Blase, Brooke Lucas, and Elizabeth Smith. In addition to a comprehensive offering of obstetric and gynecological care, the practice offers in-office surgery, pelvic floor physical therapy, and medical spa services. Women First is affiliated with William Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak (Corewell Health William Beaumont University Hospital), a top-ranked hospital in US News & World Report.

“I am thrilled at the opportunity to partner with Together Women’s Health,” said Dr. Andrea Schiller, partner of Women First. “The TWH team is equally as passionate about women’s health as we are, and this made our decision obvious.”

“We take great pride in the medical care we provide our patients. This foundation and the hard work of our doctors and employees have allowed us to build a well-respected and successful practice. With the climate of healthcare changing, increasing costs, and no change in our reimbursements in many years, we realized to continue to grow and provide the best services to our patients, we needed to look for smart business solutions without compromising what we do,” said Dr. Paula Fishbaugh, partner of Women First. “At least five years ago we began meeting with companies with stated expertise addressing these challenges to allow us to continue to grow our business. Together Women’s Health was the clear leader. As partners, Women First can continue to provide the high standard of care we and our patients are accustomed to and TWH can streamline our backend processes, reduce overhead, provide best-in-class solutions, support investments in growth, and give us a stronger voice with insurance companies and health systems. We are confident that this opportunity will continue to allow us to run our practice in the smartest way possible while allowing us to continue doing what we love - taking care of our patients.”

“We’ve created something special at Together Women’s Health and could not be more excited by the opportunity to partner with the Women First team whose reputation and dedication to excellent patient care aligns closely with our values,” said Anthony Ahee, CEO of Together Women’s Health. “As we expand throughout the country and significantly enhance our presence in Michigan, our commitment to support our affiliates with the resources and strategic guidance needed to continue providing patients the highest quality women’s healthcare is what motivates us. We truly care about preserving what makes private practice special as we continue building a mission-focused, physician-led culture. We are excited to welcome our new partners to the Together Women’s Health family.”
