DOWNEY – PIH Health announced Monday it has acquired Pioneer Medical Group and all its assets, effective July 1.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Forty-six healthcare providers are now part of its existing medical group, PIH Health Physicians (PHP).

With the acquisition, PIH Health adds eight medical office buildings to its network which are spread throughout the cities of Downey, Bellflower, Cerritos, Long Beach, Los Alamitos and South Gate.

“PIH Health is now able to connect with more communities, and sere as their partner in health and wellness,” said PIH Health Physicians President Brian Smolskis.

PIH officials said patients can continue to see their primary care physician and specialists without interruption.

“Our primary focus during this time is conducting a smooth transition for patients to PIH Health Physicians,” said Smolskis. “We look forward to being a trusted partner in the health and wellness of our newest patients.”

The name Pioneer Medical Group will no longer be used, and all current Pioneer offices will be rebranded as PIH Health Physicians.

There will be a transition period for the operations to be coordinated and the name change to be fully implemented, but new signage and materials incorporating the Pioneer medical offices into the PIH Health network will be put in place.

Patients with questions can call (562) 927-2600, ext. 81098.
