Privia Medical Group Launches Privia Wellness in Partnership with Iron Health, Reimagining Comprehensive Care for Women
In partnership with Iron Health, Privia Wellness will extend OB/GYN care for patients
HOUSTON, TX- Privia Medical Group Gulf Coast is embracing novel models of care to ensure their patients get access to much-needed health and wellness services. Launched in partnership with Iron Health—a virtual care partner backed by March of Dimes—Privia Wellness, a new ancillary offering for Privia Medical Group OB/GYNs, will provide services for women from weight management and hormone replacement therapy to nutraceuticals and sleep and brain health.
“With the rise of the consumerization of healthcare, the way women manage their health is changing. Privia Medical Group is taking a stance to better serve women, and we’re thrilled to be part of this journey to develop a modern, comprehensive women’s health strategy at scale,” says Stephanie Winans, CEO and Co-founder at Iron Health.
Launching with Privia Medical Group Gulf Coast, Privia Wellness will provide patients the services they seek, in concert with the care provided by their OB/GYN practice. Recent research shows the majority of women use their OB/GYN for all of their healthcare needs.
“Knitting extended services to a woman’s OB/GYN practice provides evidence-based care under the supervision of their most trusted healthcare provider, and reduces the likelihood of care happening in a silo,” says Dr. Mark Cone, OB/GYN and Market President of Privia Health.
Privia Wellness services will include a holistic approach tailored to you, including medication management, lifestyle coaching and nutrition, each personalized to your individual needs in four important areas.
- Weight management, supported by Iron Health
- Hormone replacement therapy
- Sleep and brain health
“To further our commitment to improving the health of moms, we invested in Iron Health, to strengthen the healthcare experience for OB/GYNs and the patients that rely on them. Iron Health’s partnership with Privia Medical Group is promising in its ability to improve access to care that lowers chronic disease, a focus area for March of Dimes,” says Dr. Elizabeth Cherot, CEO of March of Dimes.
Privia Wellness launched in October with Privia Medical Group Gulf Coast for Texas patients, with more locations to come. For more information about this partnership, visit: www.ironhealth.io/providers-priviawellness
