Entira Family Clinics strengthens independence through new partnership with Fairview Physician Associates Network

Entira Family Clinics strengthens independence through new partnership with Fairview Physician Associates Network

Entira Family Clinics has joined Fairview Physician Associates Network, a network of more than 3,400 primary and specialty providers in the greater Twin Cities area.

FPA Network is a provider- and practice administrator-led nonprofit organization comprised of more than 530 clinics that are independent, owned by Fairview Health Services, or affiliated with University of Minnesota Physicians. The network negotiates with health plans as a group and provides services and tools to help member clinics deliver coordinated care, improve quality and control health care costs.

Entira, which is physician owned and operated, will remain an independent family practice as part of the network.

"Our clinics dont just serve families - they serve generations," said Len Kaiser, Entiras chief administrative officer. "The providers and staff at our clinics form special relationships with their patients that can last a lifetime. We believe being part of FPA Network will only strengthen our ability to provide our patients and communities with the outstanding care theyve come to expect from us."

With 12 primary care clinics, two after-hours care clinics and two express clinics, Entira has provided comprehensive patient care to east metro communities for more than 50 years.

"We are pleased to welcome Entira Family Clinics into FPA Network," said Kevin Nelson, MD, FPA Network president. "We believe we are all strengthened through partnership. Together, our network members are working to improve the quality and value of health care for members of our communities as we enhance the patient and provider experience."
