Women’s Health Texas (WHT) and its partner Women’s Health USA recently expanded its business footprint in Texas by adding the well-established OBGyn group in San Antonio, Institute for Women’s Health (IFWH).
Since 1996, IFWH has been committed to exceptional women’s healthcare and includes more than 30 physicians at 8 locations. This new arrangement will make IFWH part of the Women’s Health Texas physician group and will allow both groups to expand their influence as a leading and high-performance women’s care delivery network in Texas, sharing collective resources and learnings to provide an exceptional patient experience. The groups will draw on the more than 20-year expertise of Women’s Health USA, a leading MSO in the women’s health space, for their management services.
Paul Murphree, MD, who serves as Chairman of Women’s Health Texas Board of Directors as well as President of the organization, spoke enthusiastically about the expansion and the potential it brings. “We see joining with IFWH as a very important piece in the Women’s Health Texas growth plan as we continue to expand in Texas. IFWH has a strong and reputable foundation in the San Antonio market that complements what we have already created in the Austin area.”
Karen Carcamo, MD, the 2020 President Elect of the IFWH group, stated “We are excited to work with Women’s Health Texas and believe it will enhance our efforts to bring the most advanced, innovative, and highest quality medical care to our communities. This partnership allows our physicians to focus more on patient care while leveraging expertise in the business aspects of our practice.”
Goran Dragolovic, CEO at Women’s Health USA, commented on the company’s market and purpose: “Our mission is to support physicians in the women’s health field by protecting their clinical autonomy and allowing them to maintain control of their practice, and by empowering them to more effectively design and deliver optimal care for their patients.” The addition of this new group expands Women’s Health USA’s visibility as a premier women’s health services company – with nearly 90 providers throughout Texas and more than 350 other providers in other states.
With a comprehensive suite of business management services, Women’s Health USA partners with OBGyn, reproductive endocrinology, and other specialty women’s health practices across the United States. It has a 20-year history of implementing creative growth strategies supporting streamlined operational costs, payer alignment, merger and acquisition plans, ancillary services development, marketing, and risk management services. Its unique partnership model enables physicians and physician groups to maintain their independence, while leveraging the resources of a national organization.
