Consensus Health Adds Five New Jersey-based Physician Practices to Its Growing Medical Group

Independent N.J.-based Physicians Practicing Under Consensus Health Medical Group Now Total 150+

MARLTON, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ConsensusHealthConsensus Health, a leading physician-owned and -governed medical group comprised of more than 150 New Jersey-based independent primary care providers and specialty doctors across more than 60 locations, announced today the expansion of its network.


In recent months, five New Jersey-based independent medical practices spanning eight physicians and six locations, have joined the Consensus Health Medical Group, which now includes 53 practices and more than 150 independent providers within its growing network.

In the case of these five additions, physicians chose to join Consensus Health based on the many benefits they receive from being part of a larger medical group model. These advantages include, but are not limited to, participating in value-based programs to demonstrate the benefits of improving population health outcomes; gaining access to various administrative support services; utilizing various technology platforms and enhanced turn-key practice processes; and, gaining a greater voice when dealing with contracting across many areas of the business. Furthermore, and perhaps most importantly, being part of Consensus Health Medical Group affords member physicians clinical autonomy. This is of major importance to independent physicians as the key reason they practice autonomously is to ensure they retain their abilities to focus on the patient and make the best decisions with regard to their care plans.

“We welcome these independent practitioners to our growing network. We recognize that the role of the independent physician within today’s rapidly changing healthcare arena has severely diminished. Consensus Health is preserving their independence by empowering physicians to determine and dictate the care they deliver,” said Michael Lovett, Consensus Health president and chief operating officer.

“At Consensus Health, clinical autonomy is ingrained in our operating model since the medical group is physician-owned and -governed. Physicians in our network are provided the tools they need and are empowered to make the best choices on behalf of their patients. In this way, all stakeholders — physicians, patients, payors and the overall medical group — stand to benefit. We look forward to serving more patients with the additional talents of our new member physicians,” Lovett concluded.
