Specialty Solutions welcomes Casco Bay Surgery as new member

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine —  Specialty Solutions announced Casco Bay Surgery as the newest member of the organization. Specialty Solutions is an association of independent physician practices working together to improve the coordination and quality of care, optimize operational efficiency, cultivate partnerships, and reduce costs.

“Particularly in this changing healthcare environment, specialty physician practices need to implement innovative strategies to remain independent,” stated Cathel Macleod, MD, president of Casco Bay Surgery. “Specialty Solutions has a demonstrated track record of executing forward-thinking programs that can improve practice efficiency while maintaining a positive patient experience.”

Specialty Solutions was formed in 2011 by four Maine physician practices – Spectrum Medical Group, OA – Centers for Orthopaedics, Chest Medicine Associates, and Portland Gastroenterology Center– to promote strong, independent specialty physician practices. Other members include Allergy & Asthma Associates of Maine, Coastal Women’s Healthcare, Eyecare Medical Group, Maine Nephrology Associates, Maine Center for Cancer Care, and Plastic and Hand Surgical Associates.

“We are pleased to welcome Casco Bay Surgery to the group,” stated David Landry, CEO of Spectrum Medical Group. “The success of Specialty Solutions is based in large part on the complementarity of the members. There is a great potential for synergy between Casco Bay Surgery and the current member practices.”
