The Permanente Medical Group And Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group Agree To Affiliation

The Permanente Medical Group and (TPMG) Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group (MAPMG) have agreed to formalize a bi-coastal affiliation between the two organizations, the groups said. The new arrangement was finalized after MAPMG physicians voted overwhelmingly to affiliate with TPMG, which is the nation’s largest medical group and is headquartered in Oakland, Calif.

"By bringing together our two medical groups, we will be better positioned to exchange best practices and innovations, improve the medical care we provide and move Kaiser Permanente closer to its goal of being a healthcare model for our nation," said Dr. Robert Pearl, who will continue as executive director and CEO of TPMG and assume the role of president and CEO of MAPMG, beginning Jan. 1, 2009.

"This affiliation heralds an exciting future for MAPMG physicians, our Kaiser Permanente Health Plan partners, and the communities we serve," said Dr. Antonio T. Michell, chairman of the MAPMG board of directors. "Through this collaboration with TPMG, we will augment our expertise, capabilities and technology to deliver the highest quality healthcare available on the East Coast. I am extremely proud of our physicians for seizing this tremendous opportunity."

The new bi-coastal affiliation will enable the groups’ 7,000 physicians to combine their collective expertise to further enhance the high quality care they already provide to Kaiser Permanente members on the East and West Coasts. TPMG is comprised of over 6,000 physicians who provide care for 3.3 million Kaiser Permanente patients in Northern California. MAPMG has more than 900 physicians providing medical care to 500,000 Kaiser Permanente members in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

With this affiliation, MAPMG physicians will gain access to TPMG’s advanced information technology systems, its medical research and its extensive physician recruitment services.
