UnitedHealth Group has quietly added yet another provider group to its growing Optum Health subsidiary.
Earlier this year, UHG acquired Crystal Run Healthcare, a New York-based physician group with about 400 doctors. There was no fanfare around the acquisition until media reports resurfaced it this week.
Local newspaper Mid-Hudson News obtained an internal email in late February, where Crystal Run leaders informed employees that they were a part of Optum as of Feb. 22. In the message, CEO Hal Teitelbaum, M.D., said the deal would advance the provider group’s value-based care capabilities.
