Orlando Health Physician Associates Acquires Pediatric Associates of Orlando

Orlando Health Physician Associates, one of the largest multi-specialty healthcare groups in Central Florida, has acquired Pediatric Associates of Orlando. Founded in 1939, it was one of the first pediatric practices in Central Florida. The acquisition is effective September 1, 2015.
“We are thrilled to welcome Pediatric Associates of Orlando to the Orlando Health family,” said Cynthia Powell, MD, President of Orlando Health Physicians. “By working together, we will move forward on collaboration efforts on several initiatives to enhance care for our pediatric patients here in Central Florida.”
“At Pediatric Associates we have dedicated our careers to providing the best care for our families,” said Gregory Gordon, MD, Pediatric Associates of Orlando. “By partnering with Orlando Health, we know that we are taking a very important step to ensure that we meet the needs of our growing practices for years to come.”
For patients of Pediatric Associates, there will be no detectible changes. Patients’ doctors, offices, benefits, co- pays, or other out-of-pocket expenses will remain the same. Pediatric Associates physicians will continue to see patients in their Orlando location at 414 North Mills Avenue and at their Ocoee/Windermere offices at 2920 Maguire Road in Ocoee.
Pediatric Associates, comprised of 10 board certified pediatricians, becomes the second healthcare group to be acquired by Orlando Health in the past three years. Physician Associates was acquired by Orlando Health in January of 2013.
