Hatfield Family Medicine and Mesa Family Medical Center have joined under the new name Partners in Primary Care, according to a press release.
Partners in Primary Care will have five centers across the East Valley in Chandler, Gilbert and Mesa. The Mesa sites are: Stapley, 220 N. Stapley Drive, 480‑718‑1290; Red Mountain, 6820 E. Brown Road, 480‑718‑1285; and Mesa, 1345 E. McKellips Road Suite No. 106, 480‑833‑1800.
“Partners in Primary Care builds upon the history, reputation and clinical expertise that made our two, long-standing medical practices successful,” Dr. David Hatfield, regional medical director with Partners in Primary Care, said in the release. “This new, unified brand allows us to communicate a name and cohesiveness that represents an even bigger promise to our patients – to partner with them to provide the right relationship for better health and well-being.”
While the practice name is changing, doctors and staff at each center will remain the same. The combined group of medical centers includes 19 health care practitioners. All five centers are also accepting new patients, including those on Medicare, according to the release.
“While we serve all age groups, we are expanding on a successful model that specializes in senior population health management,” Mike Slice, operations director with Partners in Primary Care, said in the release. “Our single, simplified goal is to proactively engage our patients in their health to help improve their quality of life.”
In addition to providing primary care service, such as physicals, management and expertise of most chronic and acute care conditions, the centers provide immunizations, injections, EKG, minor dermatological and surgical procedures, and patient education.
The centers regularly host complimentary doctor talks and health improvement events for both patients and members of the community. The next events include: Medication safety seminar with a medication review, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. May 15; Doctor talk on high blood pressure, 10 a.m. May 18; and Senior Health and Fitness Day, 10 a.m.-noon May 27.
