Austin OB/GYN joins CommUnityCare
Tuesday, May 29, 2018 by Katy McElroy
CommUnityCare, which currently provides health care services at 23 locations in Travis County, will be integrating the Austin OB/GYN practice, founded by Dr. Jeff Hagen, starting on June 4. “Serving the Medicaid population has been a passion of mine my entire career,” said Dr. Hagen in a press release. “This partnership allows me the opportunity to continue to serve this population with the support of a primary care network that has the resources to meet the comprehensive needs of our patients.” The merge will allow CommUnityCare to expand its coverage area, explained Dr. Ashley Choucroun, CommUnityCare’s women’s health medical director. “The addition of these four medical practices, one located in Austin’s Riverside neighborhood, another in Austin’s Springdale area, one in Manor, and the last one in Bastrop, helps ensure that women residing within growing areas of Central Texas continue to have access to prenatal care, contraception, and gynecologic services,” she said. The release predicts a smooth transition, as “operations at these four Austin OB/GYN locations will continue as is. There will be no changes to phone numbers, medical records, and/or appointment processes, and most providers and staff will transition to CommUnityCare.”
