EVERETT, Wash. (February 28, 2017) – The Everett Clinic, a medical group within the DaVita Medical Group division of DaVita Inc. (NYSE: DVA), today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Totem Lake Family Medicine, a renowned medical group with six board-certified family medicine providers and one physicians assistant in Kirkland, Washington. The transaction is targeted to close on April 1, 2017.
“Totem Lake Family Medicine is a high-performing medical group known for its great quality and loyal patients,” said Chris Knapp, chief executive officer at The Everett Clinic. “By coming together, Totem Lake Medicine and The Everett Clinic are committed to building the leading independent medical group in the Pacific Northwest.”
Totem Lake Medicine has provided primary care services to the Eastside community for almost 30 years. The addition of The Everett Clinic’s integrated specialty care services including behavioral health and population health services aim to expand and improve comprehensive health services in this region.
“By joining The Everett Clinic, we will continue to thrive and grow in the community that we’ve been privileged to serve for almost 30 years,” said Dale Miyauchi, MD of Totem Lake Family Medicine.
As the health care market shifts away from a volume-based care model toward a value-based care model, the population health skills and competencies that The Everett Clinic offers can help augment the superior care that the Totem Lake Medicine providers are committed to giving their patients.
“Totem Lake Family Medicine’s approach aligns with The Everett Clinic and DaVita Medical Group’s guiding principles in that we are physician-led, patient-centered and clinically focused,” said Chris Knapp.
