VillageMD, a healthcare services provider for individuals and communities across the U.S. with primary, multi-specialty and urgent care providers serving patients in clinic settings, in patients’ homes and online appointments, has bought Starling Physicians.

Starling Physicians is a primary care and multi-specialty group in Connecticut. Starling has over 30 locations in Connecticut offering primary care and a range of focuses including cardiology, ophthalmology, endocrinology, nephrology and geriatric care.

“Starling shares our vision of being a physician-led model and they provide care in a compassionate and exceptional way to all the patients they serve,” comments Tim Barry, CEO and chair of VillageMD. “By integrating primary care with specialty care, we are able to optimize access to high-quality care for our patients. This is a natural extension of our growth in the Northeast, including our recent acquisition of Summit Health-CityMD.”

Cain Brothers served as financial advisor and DLA Piper LLC served as legal counsel to Starling. River Pines Capital LLC also provided strategic advice to the Starling board of directors. McDermott Will & Emery served as legal counsel to VillageMD.
