STATESVILLE, NC, August 3, 2022 – Piedmont HealthCare, one of North Carolina and the Southeast’s largest physician-owned multi-specialty groups, will offer its senior patients a new value-based approach to primary care facilitated through a long-term partnership with agilon health, the trusted partner empowering physicians to transform health care in our communities.

“Piedmont HealthCare is excited to partner with agilon health, a company with a proven record of transforming healthcare and empowering physicians. Our value-based care work today will be supercharged as a result of this partnership and will change the way healthcare is delivered to our senior population,” says Jeffrey Smith, Chief Executive Officer, Piedmont HealthCare.

With nearly 60 primary care providers, patients are empowered to select from a diverse pool of providers that best aligns with their medical needs. The primary care providers at Piedmont HealthCare will focus on delivering the highest quality of care to their patients, especially their senior patients, through this new value-based care approach. The Piedmont HealthCare Senior Care Advantage partnership will empower the practice to be the home for high-quality, cost-effective senior care.
