Merger creates 250-physican group in Conn.: 4 things to know

Physician groups Rocky Hill-based Connecticut Multispecialty Group and New Britain, Conn.-based Grove Hill Medical Centers have merged, becoming Starling Physicians, according to a Hartford Courant report.

Here are four things to know about the merger.

1. The two groups became Starling Physicians Jan. 1.

2. Under the deal, CMG separated from Hartford (Conn.) HealthCare's Integrated Care Partners, a clinical integration organization it helped found.

3. As Starling Physicians, the groups have more than 250 physicians and other medical practitioners at 28 locations across Connecticut, according to the report.

4. Michael Genovesi, MD, CEO of the new Starling Physicians, touted the decision to complete the merger. "We decided as time has gone on, that you do need size to be more efficient," he said, according to the Hartford Courant. "We have been talking for over two years with some discussions going back five years. The last two years were solid discussions and we agreed this was a perfect fit since we were doing the same things."
