Altais Medical Group Riverside expands healthcare options during COVID pandemic in region experiencing severe shortage of physicians
OAKLAND, Calif. (Jan. 12, 2022) – Healthcare services company Altais today announced the launch of a state-of-the-art multi-specialty medical group in Riverside, California. The new Altais Medical Group Riverside will provide a wide range of specialties from primary care and obstetrics and gynecology to interventional cardiology for community members in Riverside County beginning in February 2022. The nearly 11,000-square-foot facility is located at 4646 Brockton Ave, Riverside CA 92506.
Leading up to the official opening of Altais Medical Group Riverside’s offices, prospective patients and others can visit www.amgriverside.com for more information. Visitors can also sign up online to receive important news and updates about the group via email or text, including when they can register as a new patient and schedule an appointment with a physician.
The new Altais Medical Group Riverside is founded on a patient-centric model of care and provides comprehensive primary and specialty care. Services provided include everything from routine check-ups to specialized cardiac, obstetric, gynecologic, urologic and gastroenterological care.
“The doctors and our healthcare teams at Altais Medical Group Riverside are all seasoned professionals with a deep commitment to serving the Riverside community,” said Rodolfo Saenz, M.D., an obstetrician / gynecologist at the new Riverside office. “Altais Medical Group Riverside patients will benefit from having multiple specialists under one roof. At the same time, we are fully committed to collaborating closely with the referral and hospital network already in place here in the Inland Empire. We are confident that new patients will appreciate the quality of care and patient-centric approach we provide.”
Altais is a healthcare services company creating business models and integrated, scalable technology solutions that enhance the patient experience, improve health outcomes, reduce cost, and drive professional gratification among physicians. Altais invests directly in physician practices, clinics and related business models. In 2020, Brown & Toland Physicians, a network of more than 2,700 independent physicians in the San Francisco Bay Area, joined the Altais family of companies. Los Angeles’ Family Care Specialists, one of the largest community-based and Latinx-led private medical groups in California, joined Altais in December 2021. Altais also has two independent primary care clinics serving essential civic employees and educators in the Monterey-Salinas market.
Recent studies show the greater Riverside community may have a deficit of up to 1,000 physicians to serve a growing Riverside County population of well over 2 million residents. Altais Medical Group Riverside aims to address that shortage by providing a new model of independent practice that, in time, can serve to attract more healthcare professionals to the region.
“Altais is proud to launch this new medical practice group in Riverside County,” said Jeff Bailet, M.D., president and chief executive officer for Altais. “Over the past decade, the healthcare field generally and the Riverside community in particular – has experienced unprecedented levels of physician burnout and early retirements. Independent physicians have been overwhelmed by the administrative demands of maintaining their practices. Altais’ mission is to focus on reversing that trend and provide independent physicians with the business practices and technologies that help them not just endure but thrive during this difficult period and beyond. We are excited to bring that vision of medical practice vibrancy to reality in Riverside.”
