23-physician group joins Northwell Health

New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health affiliated with the 23-physician Concorde Medical Group, a multispecialty group with seven locations in Manhattan.

The health system announced the partnership on Oct. 8 as an opportunity to strengthen its network in Manhattan, which includes 86 outpatient sites and three hospitals. Concorde's physicians bring the system additional expertise in internal medicine, rheumatology, cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology, hepatology, gynecology, urogynecology, immunology and podiatry.  

Concorde President Paula Marchetta, MD, said Concorde decided to join Northwell to position the group for continued growth.

"It was important to our doctors at Concorde that we continue to function as a physician-run group, maintaining the autonomy and cohesiveness which has allowed us to offer very personalized, high-quality care to our patients. Northwell shares these same values and provides us the unique opportunity to remain as Concorde while being a part of a much larger organization," she said in a press release.   

Dr. Marchetta will continue in her role at Concorde, alongside a new post as Northwell Health's director of strategic initiatives in Manhattan and western Queens.
