Five Birmingham independent physician associations (IPAs) today announced that they have joined forces to form Iron City IPA (“Iron City”), the largest physician-led IPA in the state of Alabama. Iron City will provide community-based coordinated and localized care that is focused on the patient experience. The new Iron City IPA includes more than 115 primary care physicians formerly with JEST IPA, Princeton Premier IPA, Red Mountain IPA, Shelby Chilton IPA, and Synergy IPA networks. This merger will offer a wide breadth of providers that offer coordinated care including preventive measures that deliver the best possible patient outcomes while maximizing cost efficiencies. Iron City is physician-led and jointly operated with CareAllies, a management service organization, and brings together independent primary care physicians who believe care should be provided in a local area that is convenient for the patient.
