ADDISON, Texas, March 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Concentra, a subsidiary of Humana (NYSE: HUM), announced today it has expanded its presence in the Portland, Ore. market with the acquisition of the assets of Cascade Occupational Medicine Physicians, Inc. ("COMPI"), which includes five medical centers.

Following completion of the transaction, Concentra gains a larger footprint in the Portland market, with two COMPI medical centers in Hillsboro and Portland operating as Concentra Urgent Care. These centers offer occupational health services and urgent care, as well as physical therapy, preventive, wellness, and health education services to current and new patients and employers. The operations of three other COMPI medical centers in Tualatin, Tigard, and the Swan Island section of Portland, respectively, were consolidated into Concentra Urgent Care's two existing centers in Swan Island and Lake Oswego.

Through this acquisition, Concentra continues to expand its footprint and commitment to clients with additional locations in the market, providing expansive medical services to meet growing demand for quality and convenient medical care. Many of the existing COMPI medical staff, providers, and non-medical personnel have been retained, building on their tenure with the organization and the long-standing relationships they have developed within the surrounding communities.

Keith Newton, president and chief operating officer of Concentra, said, "This is an excellent opportunity to expand our service and medical expertise in the greater Portland market.  Cascade Occupational Medicine has a proven record of service to the community, providing comprehensive medical treatment for injured employees – a philosophy that parallels that of Concentra and ultimately results in tremendous benefits for our patients and clients."

Serving the community for nearly 20 years dating back to its formation with Legacy Health System, COMPI has been a well-established provider of efficient and effective occupational health services to the employer community.  Existing COMPI patients gain greater access to quality and convenient health services at all five Concentra locations in Oregon, including locations in Portland and Lake Oswego:
