HealthCare Partners Acquires Facey Medical Foundation’s San Gabriel Practice

Top-Rated California Medical Group Expands Coordinated Care Services to San Gabriel Patients

TORRANCE (March 2, 2015) - HealthCare Partners, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners, has acquired the San Gabriel medical practice of Facey Medical Foundation, an affiliate of Providence Health & Services, Southern California. The San Gabriel office at 207 S. Santa Anita Street opened under HealthCare Partners effective March 1, 2015.

"The acquisition of the San Gabriel medical practice is a natural extension of HealthCare Partners’ solid footprint in the San Gabriel Valley," said Dinesh Kumar, M.D., chief medical officer for HealthCare Partners Medical Group. "We are excited to provide our new patients with the high quality, personalized health care they’ve come to expect and for which we are known."

HealthCare Partners will continue to provide patients high-quality care by the same team of physicians and support staff currently in practice, aside from three physicians who have retired. Patients will be able to access their current hospital network, which includes San Gabriel Medical Center and Arcadia Methodist Hospital, and will receive additional access to the Huntington Memorial and Verdugo Hills hospitals. They also will have access to HealthCare Partners’ urgent care centers, including the recently expanded urgent care center in Pasadena, which is open 24/7.

"This transition better consolidates Facey practices in the San Fernando, Santa Clarita and Simi Valley areas served by its parent organization, Providence Health & Services, Southern California,” said Teresa David, chief operating officer of Facey Medical Foundation. "We know that patients will continue to receive high-quality care through HealthCare Partners.”
