DAP Health, a long-time healthcare service of the desert, has officially integrated with Borrego Health with approval from Bankruptcy Court and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
The two organizations will now operate as one; with approximately 850 employees serving upwards of 100,000 patients of all ages, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds. With the acquisition of Borrego Health, there will be 25 Southern California clinics located from the Salton Sea to San Diego.
Borrego Health will additionally provide DAP Health services, including: family medicine, women's health (including OB-GYN), pediatrics, veterans' health, geriatrics, urgent care, and pharmacy services.
David Brinkman, CEO of DAP Health states, "It’s an honor to unite Borrego Health and DAP Health’s missions, as well as our region’s most exceptional, dedicated, and passionate health care professionals."
All Borrego Health employees have been offered employment at DAP Health and 99% have accepted to join.
“Together, we will build a brighter future where every individual — regardless of who or where they are — has equal opportunity to live a healthy and fulfilling life," states Brinkman. "We will achieve this by replicating our time-tested, holistic, patient-centered care model, which addresses all applicable social determinants of health negatively affecting the patient population at each of our clinics."
Any patient at DAP Health or Borrego Health can now make appointments at any of the locations in the expanded system.
