FOUNTAINS FAMILY CARE JOINS APC
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FOUNTAINS FAMILY CARE JOINS ARIZONA PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIANS, THE VALLEY’S LARGEST INDEPENDENT PRIMARY CARE MEDICAL GROUP
Peoria, Arizona (April 29, 2016) – In response to the rapidly changing health care environment,
over 75 independent primary care physicians in more than 32 different physical locations across
the Valley joined forces to create the largest independent primary care medical group in the
Valley, Arizona Primary Care Physicians, LLC (APC). Fountains Family Care, owned by Dr.
Richard Le, has just joined APC.
“We are very excited to have Fountains Family Care join APC,” said Dr. Graeme Tolson, APC’s
Vice President. “The addition of Fountains Family Care provides us with yet another high-quality,
patient focused primary care division in the east valley. Dr. Le is a perfect fit for APC.”
The average independent primary care practice in the Valley has less than three physicians which
leads to inefficiency and inability to make the investments that are necessary. Additionally,
primary care physicians face a myriad of new challenges including: increasing costs, investments
in information technology, higher levels of staffing, and new accountabilities in quality outcomes
that require clinical tracking systems. At the same time their reimbursement and income flows
are being threatened. APC formed to address these challenges.
“The writing is on the wall,” said Dr. Le. “In order to maintain the quality and positive
experience my patients have come to expect, I need access to access to scale and resources, but
also want my independence. With APC, I can focus on my patients, while being a part of a
group of independent physicians that have the same goal in mind.”
“The mission of APC is to ‘Empower our patients and providers to thrive’ and our vision is to be
Arizona’s premier partner in health,” said President Dr. Nally. “This is our not only a written
proclamation, but is what drives us every day as primary care physicians and business leaders.
APC uniquely combines the autonomy of independent practice with the advantages of being a
large medical group. We think this uniquely positions us to be great partners for patients,
providers and payers.”
Arizona Primary Care Physicians, LLC is a physician-owned, physician-governed, clinically
integrated, professionally managed independent primary care group practice formed to deliver
world-class medical care and population health solutions in concert with strategic partners across
Arizona. With over 80 primary care physicians, APC is the largest independent primary care
group practice in the Valley.
