Vytalize Health, a company looking to help independent physicians and practices improve patient care and lower costs and a portfolio company of Enhanced Healthcare Partners, has acquired a controlling stake in Independent Physician Association of New York.

Headquartered in Suffolk County, IPA NY is a multi-specialty IPA with more than 3,000 providers. Adding IPA NY to the Vytalize platform aligns with the company’s mission to work to strengthen value-based primary care practices and transform healthcare experiences.

“Both Vytalize and IPA NY have strong market presence within the Tri-State area and share a commitment to supporting independent physicians and patients,” says Vytalize co-founder and CEO Faris Ghawi. “IPA NY’s provider base offers a great opportunity for Vytalize to grow its core business and expand into commercial and Medicare Advantage.”
