Fresh off $8.9B deal for Summit Health, VillageMD acquires Dallas practice

Weeks after its $8.9 billion deal for Summit Health closed, VillageMD acquired a Dallas medical practice that includes internal medicine, geriatric and urgent care services.

VillageMD said Dallas Internal Medicine and Geriatrics Specialists' three physician founders and advanced practice provider will stay on board.

"The experienced and dynamic team from Dallas Internal Medicine and Geriatric Specialists aligns with our vision to transform the way primary care is delivered," said Clive Fields, MD, co-founder and chief medical officer of VillageMD, in a Jan. 19 news release. "They will continue to provide expert care for their patients' acute needs as well as effectively manage their complex and chronic conditions. We're thrilled to welcome them to Village Medical."

VillageMD, in which Walgreens bought a majority stake in 2021 for $5.2 billion, has been expanding its primary care footprint across the U.S. in recent years, and now has 680 locations in 26 markets.

Its multibillion-dollar acquisition of primary and urgent care company Summit Health was finalized Jan. 3. It also has an app offering virtual visits and a patent-pending care coordination platform.
