Frederick Primary Care Associates, Frederick County’s Largest Practice, Partners with Privia Medical Group

Privia network in Northern Maryland expands with 50-provider practice

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA (November 1, 2016) Privia Medical Group, one of the largest clinically integrated, high-performance medical groups in the nation, announced today that Frederick Primary Care Associates (FPCA), a 50-provider practice, will join Privia Medical Group in the Mid-Atlantic market.

"FPCA has been a proud member of the Frederick County healthcare community for more than 30 years and, in looking at the changing healthcare landscape, it became clear that FPCA would need increasing levels of sophistication in data, IT and care management to succeed," said Gerard Delgrippo, MD, President of FPCA. "In Privia, we have found a medical group that understands our needs and has put together a package of technology and care management services that will complement our group’s mission. Privia enables practices like ours to preserve the independence and autonomy we desire, while giving us access to the support and services necessary to move forward with our goals of keeping people healthy, improving outcomes and delivering high-value care."

FPCA formed in 1997 through the merger of three of Frederick County’s best-known family practices. The practice has grown to include 50 providers in nine locations across the Frederick area, including Ballenger Creek, Brunswick, Jefferson, Spring Ridge, Woodsboro, Walkersville and Urbana. The practice provides medical care for patients from all walks of life, from newborns to geriatric patients. The practice offers traditional primary care services in addition to in-office diagnostic services.

"We look forward to partnering with Frederick Primary Care Associates on this journey to value. Both FPCA and Privia believe that there is an important role for private practices to fill in the changing healthcare environment," said Dave Rothenberg, President of Privia Health. "FPCA is known throughout the community as a practice that delivers compassionate, comprehensive care to its patients, and we’re thrilled to bring additional tools, technology and teams to support the practice in advancing its mission."
