Concentra Acquires Northern Colorado Medical Practice

11/05/2011

Concentra, a subsidiary of Humana Inc., announced today it has expanded its medical center footprint in northern Colorado with the acquisition of GeneralCare Medical Clinic, which owned two health centers located in Fort Collins and Windsor, Colorado. The acquisition expands Concentra’s geographic footprint to 15 centers in Colorado.

The former GeneralCare Medical Clinic locations will now operate under the Concentra Urgent Care name. GeneralCare’s Medical Director, Brian Thompson, M.D., and its medical staff members, providers, and non-medical personnel have been retained as part of the acquisition, building on the long-standing relationships they have developed within the community. The new Concentra Urgent Care locations will offer occupational medicine, urgent care, and primary health and wellness services to patients and employers. In the near future, Concentra plans to consolidate its existing medical center in Fort Collins into the newly acquired GeneralCare Fort Collins location.

Ted Bucknam, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Concentra, said, "This is an excellent opportunity to further expand our service and medical expertise in the growing northern Colorado market. GeneralCare has a proven record of service to the community, providing comprehensive medical treatment for both the employer and private patient community – a philosophy that parallels that of Concentra and ultimately results in tremendous benefits for patients and clients."

This acquisition supports Concentra’s extensive client base, its long history as the leading provider of occupational medicine to employees, and a growing demand for comprehensive health and wellness services. The company employs board-certified physicians, licensed therapists, occupational health specialists, and trained medical technicians to deliver exceptional heath care to patients across the country.

Existing GeneralCare patients will also have increased access to quality and convenient health services through Concentra Urgent Care locations in the greater Denver area. For a complete list of locations, visit www.Concentra.com.
