Two of Utah’s Largest Medical Groups Reimagine Whole-Patient Care
SALT LAKE CITY – June 2021 – Granger Medical Clinic and Ogden Clinic, two of Utah’s largest medical groups, are proud to announce their commitment to whole patient care through a partnership with Arizona-based evolvedMD to integrate behavioral health into their modern primary care practices. This partnership will allow current patients at both Granger and Ogden to receive impactful behavioral health services at a time when many Utahns, like the rest of the nation, are struggling.
“The statistics are harrowing,” said Kevin Porter, CEO of Ogden Clinic. “So many of our patients are experiencing adverse symptoms related to anxiety and/or depression without any resources to help. Through this partnership, we are looking forward to being the resource they need by providing the people who need help an avenue to receive it in the place they feel most comfortable.”
“With four in 10 adults experiencing at least one adverse mental or behavioral symptom, that translates to hundreds of thousands of individuals in our local community who desperately need to connect to resources, and we are thrilled to provide those interventions at Granger with help from evolvedMD,” said Dr. Mary Jane Pennington, MD, President and CEO at Granger Medical Clinic.
Through this partnership, evolvedMD will provide behavioral health solutions at Granger Fairbourne Station and Ogden’s Bountiful and Grand View locations at launch beginning in June 2021.
“We know that patients are best served when primary care and behavioral health work together. Through the clinically validated and industry-adopted Psychiatric Collaborative Care (CoCM) model, we are thrilled to introduce the Salt Lake City community to trajectory-changing services.” said Erik Osland, Managing Partner of evolvedMD. “Our enhanced approach to behavioral health integration will see both Granger and Ogden reinforce their commitment to the whole-patient which will place them as industry leaders in modern primary care.”
To better serve Utah, this partnership represents the first step to ensuring that more people in the community have access to quality behavioral health services to make Utah a better place to live, work, and play. To learn more, please contact Sentari Minor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
