SynerMed, the leading healthcare platform for government-sponsored healthcare programs, announced today that Employee Health Systems Medical Group, Inc. entered into a definitive agreement to acquire MultiCultural Medical Group, Inc.

“On behalf of EHS Medical Group, I am thrilled to welcome MultiCultural Medical Group into the EHS family,” said James Mason, Chief Executive Officer and President of SynerMed. “MultiCultural’s long history of providing culturally sensitive and comprehensive healthcare to the diverse patient population in San Diego County is the perfect complement to EHS’s mission to provide high quality care to the underserved.”

MultiCultural Medical Group was founded in 1993 by Rodney Hood, M.D. and Richard Butcher, M.D.

“MultiCultural Medical Group has been proud to serve San Diego’s minority community,” said Rodney Hood, M.D., President of MultiCultural Medical Group. “We chose to join EHS so that together we could advance EHS and MultiCultural’s mission to provide quality healthcare to underserved and disadvantaged communities. This is an exciting step towards our goal of equitable and cost-efficient healthcare for everyone.”

The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2017.
