“Excelsior’s goal is to hire the best community physicians to provide high-quality, value-based medical care,” said Chen, in a statement. “We want to reduce healthcare costs and improve the patient experience by enhancing our physicians’ ability to share information, making it easier for them to manage patient outcomes more efficiently and effectively. Our merger with Rendr will help us achieve our mission on an accelerated pace and a larger scale.”

Excelsior started in 2013. Currently, Excelsior has more than 80 providers from 12 clinical specialties across 21 divisions at 59 sites in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island.

Rendr is a primary care focused, multi-specialty medical group, providing 11 clinical specialties through its 40 locations in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens to serve a predominantly Asian patient population of approximately 100,000.
