DaVita Medical Group, a division of DaVita Inc. and a leading independent medical group in the United States, announced the acquisition of Dr. Rahn Shaw's practices, Park Avenue Medical, Inc. and Winter Park Health Center, Inc., each located in Orlando.  Dr. Shaw has been an affiliate with DaVita Medical Group since 2005.

"We're proud to welcome these two practices to our growing presence in the Orlando area," said Joe Mello, chief operating officer for DaVita Medical Group. "For over 31 years, Dr. Shaw's practices have served Orlando and have been at the forefront of medical technology and managed care. To us, this acquisition made sense as we aim to welcome more Orlando physician practices to DaVita Medical Group that demonstrate clinical excellence and have a strong reputation in the community."

"For over 10 years, I have enjoyed my affiliation with DaVita Medical Group as a member of their IPA," said Dr. Rahn Shaw. "I look forward to continuing to provide high quality clinical care to the Orlando community as a member of this highly regarded medical group."

Together, Dr. Shaw's practices employ 44 teammates, including 9 physicians.  The practices have offered high quality care to patients of all ages, from pediatrics to geriatrics, since its founding in 1986.

The transaction for the acquisition of the two practices closed on July 1, 2017.  Under the terms of the acquisition, the practices will be branded "DaVita Medical Group."
