PCA Healthcare to join Carilion Clinic in June

Move adds five practice locations and 17 physicians to Carilion’s presence

 

­ PCA Healthcare today announced that it intends to join Carilion Clinic in June.

 

“Carilion Clinic’s philosophical approach to medicine is where we see the future of our practice, especially as it relates to primary care,” said Dr. Edwin (Ted) Polverino, president of PCA Healthcare. “That’s why we approached them in the first place.”

 

Incorporating PCA into Carilion’s group of family practices will offer several benefits to PCA patients, including greater access to Carilion’s network of health care providers. In addition, patients will be able to take advantage of Carilion’s “MyChart” online patient portal, which allows them to access their medical records at any time and exchange secure messages with their primary care doctor and others on their health care team.
MyChart is also the basis of the patient-centered medical home model of primary care, which Carilion has practiced since 2011.

 

“We are thrilled to begin this journey with Dr. Polverino and PCA,” said Nancy Howell Agee, president and CEO of Carilion Clinic. “Welcoming health care professionals who are as enthusiastic about a patient-centered approach to health care as we are is a perfect match for us and this community.”

 

PCA Healthcare operates four clinic locations in Salem, Floyd and Daleville and employs 21 health care providers. Details of the transaction are still being finalized. For PCA patients, the transition should be seamless.  They will receive additional communications from PCA and Carilion as details are solidified.

 

The transaction is expected to be completed in late June.
