Macon, Ga.-based Navicent Health and Greensboro, Ga.-based Cowles Clinic have agreed to form a strategic partnership to provide patients in the Greene, Morgan and Putnam County areas access to high-quality care and services.

Under the agreement, both organizations will collaborate to create a women's health center and to expand cardiology services at the clinic's existing cardiology practice. The organizations will also add additional primary care and pediatric physicians to the medical staff at both locations.

"The goal of our partnership is to expand primary care and specialized services for those who live in Georgia's lake country, allowing us to recruit physicians and expand services to cover the continuum of care. The partnership will allow Navicent Health, with the strength and reputation of Dr. Robert Cowles and the Cowles Clinic, to expand resources in the lake country area in an effort to keep healthcare local," said Ninfa Saunders, MD, president and CEO of Navicent Health.

"Cowles Clinic has always been focused on providing the highest quality…healthcare to the people in the greater Lake Oconee area and beyond. Together with Navicent Health, we will expand the number of quality services, physicians and technologies offered to residents not only of the greater Lake Oconee area, but throughout Georgia, the Southeast and the U.S. Our partnership will allow us to achieve that goal," said Robert Cowles, MD, founder of the Cowles Clinic.
