The combined organization, according to SMG, will offer patients a seamless experience across a full spectrum of high-quality primary, specialty, and urgent care.
The joint company will focus on providing high-quality medical care with exceptional convenience and value. Merging CityMD’s strength in urgent care and Summit Medical Group’s expertise in coordinated, value-based primary and specialty care, will create a uniquely accessible and comprehensive model for patients across the New York/New Jersey metro area, SMG said.
“Since its inception in 2010, CityMD has built healthier, kinder communities by providing high-quality, convenient, and compassionate care for everyone,” said Dr. Richard Park, chief executive officer and co-founder of CityMD. “This exciting merger will integrate our urgent care centers with an exemplary multispecialty medical organization and expand patient access to some of the best medical care in the tri-state area,” Park said.
“Our companies are united by a shared belief that upholding a patient-centered philosophy in today’s environment means providing convenient, on-demand access to outstanding primary care, cutting-edge specialty care, and a breadth of ancillary services,” said Dr. Jeffrey Le Benger, chairman and chief executive officer of Summit Medical Group.
