Three Portland-area health care clinics on Tuesday said they have merged to create the state’s largest private OB/GYN practice.

Women’s Healthcare Associates LLC, Women’s Clinic PC and Women’s Health Center of Oregon combined as of Aug. 26.

Now doing business as Women’s Healthcare Associates LLC, the newly merged company has nearly 90 clinicians, including obstetrician/gynecologist physician and nurse practitioners, as well as the state’s largest group of certified midwives.

In a news release, Women’s Healthcare Associates cited several benefits to merging:
  • Patients now have access to the combined expertise of nearly 90 clinicians.
  • Medical officials who consult with the clinic now have access to a larger pool of expertise.
  • Patients on Portland’s east side, Oregon City and Canby will now have better access to a wider range of services.
The combined organization has 11 locations throughout the Portland metro area, including four on the west side of Portland and two on the east side of Portland, as well as offices in Tualatin, Newberg, Oregon City, Canby and an administrative office in Beaverton.
