One Medical, the nation’s largest independent primary care provider, today announced it will expand its footprint in New York City by partnering with Mount Sinai to deliver high-quality integrated care. With this partnership, Mount Sinai is now One Medical’s preferred healthcare system partner in the greater New York market. As part of this strategic expansion, One Medical plans to nearly double the number of primary care locations in New York City by 2020.
By partnering with Mount Sinai, One Medical will be able to provide members with a more enhanced and better-integrated care experience, driving improved outcomes and cost savings. One Medical members will benefit from prioritized access to Mount Sinai specialists, with less wait times for appointments, allowing for faster access to high-quality care. In addition, primary care providers will be able to quickly share electronic records with One Medical health system partners to better manage patient health and wellness.
One Medical and Mount Sinai will also help bring down the total cost of care, by continuing to focus on reducing out of pocket expenses with practices such as prescribing generic drugs when possible and offering 24/7 virtual care.
One Medical is committed to transforming the healthcare experience and expanding the definition of what primary care means today, by providing accessible and comprehensive primary care where members work, live, and travel. With this partnership, One Medical will expand the availability of high-quality integrated care, extend its national footprint, and increase its presence in the New York City market.
