– Addition of Dr. Lama Medical Center brings nearly 30 years of experience delivering high-quality, personalized care in Central Florida –
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — March 9, 2021 – Officials with InnovaCare Health, a national leader in integrated and value-based healthcare services, announced today the company has entered into an agreement to acquire Dr. Lama Medical Center (DLMC), a two-physician medical group based in Haines City, Fla. The primary care practice will join the InnovaCare Health family of companies and be supported by the organization’s MSO network, InnovaCare Partners.
Since 1993, DLMC has taken a progressive approach to population health management, building services to support patients’ entire wellbeing, including preventative care and services to support chronic disease management.
“We are excited to bring on the sterling reputation and proven clinical excellence of Dr. Lama and his team,” said Andrew Mintz, President of InnovaCare Florida operations. “Our growth strategy is all about identifying likeminded physician practices, who understand the importance of building relationships with patients and helping them to lead healthier, happier lives. This is a great fit for our organization, and we look forward to working together closely over the coming months and years to enhance the impressive services and experience DLMC’s patients receive.”
With more than 30 combined years of experience in the Haines City market, DLMC’s two licensed physicians – Jacobo Lama, M.D., and William Jimenez, M.D.– conduct more than 11,000 patient visits annually. Together with their staff, they provide region-leading patient experience. All of the group’s staff and providers will continue to serve current patients as well as new ones.
By joining the InnovaCare network, DLMC providers and staff will have greater access to enhanced clinical tools, management expertise and other resources to ensure patients always receive the highest quality and most personalized care, from the same providers they know and trust.
“For nearly 30 years, we have put our patients’ needs first in every decision we’ve made, and that’s exactly what we are doing by joining the InnovaCare family of companies,” said Lama. “This partnership will allow us to continue meeting our patients’ needs with the highest quality care. InnovaCare has a proven track record of clinical excellence and patient satisfaction, and we believe today’s announcement will lead to an even brighter future for our practice.”
InnovaCare Health continues to expand its Florida footprint through the organization’s MSO network, InnovaCare Partners. Today, InnovaCare Partners empowers more than 60 physicians with practices throughout Florida with clinical, administrative and operational resources needed to thrive in today’s complex healthcare environment.
Based in White Plains, N.Y., InnovaCare Health maintains its InnovaCare Partners Florida division office in Altamonte Springs.
