Women’s Health USA, a healthcare and management services organization, recently expanded its business relationship with Arizona OBGyn Affiliates (AOA). The two entities initially came together contractually two years ago in the interest of business and revenue cycle support. Based on successes there and on changes in Women’s Health USA’s offerings, the timing was right to explore a deeper arrangement.
Dr. Michael Urig, FACOG, who serves as Chairman of AOA, spoke enthusiastically about the partnership expansion and the potential it brings for AOA’s future success. “We look forward to our ongoing partnership with Women’s Health USA in order to continue delivering great and affordable care to our patients along with keeping our autonomy as physicians. This partnership allows us to focus more on patient care while enjoying combined expertise in the business aspects of our practice. I’m excited and proud of our AOA physicians and partners who have helped build this wonderful service for women in the Phoenix area.”
Andrew Villa, MD, the President of the group, added. “We are excited to work with Women’s Health USA to further our mission to provide exceptional healthcare to women through Arizona’s leading women’s health practice. Our new partnership will enhance our efforts to bring the most advanced, innovative, and highest quality medical care to our communities. Moving forward together will allow us to expand our reach into other communities throughout Arizona, elevating the level of care to women.”
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. Drs. Urig and Villa and the rest of the AOA providers have a collective vision, passion and commitment to quality that is palpable, and we are energized by this opportunity to partner with them.
AOA is a group of 32 OBGyn physicians and 20 mid-level providers in the Phoenix area. The practice consists of 5 branches with 10 office locations in and around the Phoenix metro area.
The addition of this new partnership expands Women’s Health USA’s visibility as a premier national women’s health services company – now active in 6 states and serving more than 750,000 patients annually.
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.
