A merger of equals between two physician groups will create one of the largest physician-owned practices in the Hartford, Conn., area, according to Hartford Business.com.

Starting Jan. 1, Rocky Hill-based Connecticut Multispecialty Group and New Britain, Conn.-based Grove Hill Medical Centers will become Starling Physicians. Under the deal, CMG will separate from Hartford (Conn.) HealthCare's Integrated Care Partners, a clinical integration organization it helped found several years ago.

Together as Starling Physicians, the groups have nearly 200 physicians, 900 employees and 28 offices. By merging, the larger group plans to improve patient care, yet remain smaller and more nimble than ICP, to move quickly in its transformation, according to the report.

The group plans to have relationships with Hartford HealthCare and its physicians will remain at Hartford Hospital and the Hospital of Central Connecticut. The group is open to expanding in the future, according to the report.
