ADDISON, Texas, Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Concentra, a subsidiary of Humana Inc., announced today its latest step into primary care with the acquisition of Mid America Medical Associates and Garcia, Rosenberg & Associates, located in Lincolnwood, Ill.  With this acquisition, Concentra now has 15 medical centers in the greater Chicagoland area.

Mid America Medical Associates and Garcia, Rosenberg & Associates, located at 7126 N. Lincoln Ave, will continue to operate under the same name, with the same hours and contact information.  Practice owner Shariar Dadkhah, along with several physicians, clinical staff, and non-medical personnel will remain with the practice, and continue to serve patients in the community with the same level of care they have come to appreciate.  The acquisition by Concentra allows the practice to maintain relationships with the private-patient community, while having direct access to Concentra's proven outcomes-driven medical model and enhanced business and technology efficiencies.  In the near future, patients will also be able to access Concentra's health and wellness services.

Mayda Antun, M.D. Vice President of Medical Operations for Concentra Primary Care, said, "This is an excellent opportunity to support the great work done for the community by Mid America Medical Associates and Garcia, Rosenberg & Associates, and share Concentra's operational enhancements and service-driven patient experience, to further improve the health and well-being of patients.  The group has a proven record of service to the community, providing comprehensive medical treatment for the private-patient community – a philosophy that parallels that of Concentra and ultimately results in significant benefits for patients."

Patients may begin to see the Concentra logo in billing and insurance claims, but should not expect to see any interruption in the delivery of medical care.  This acquisition helps to create a wider network of quality, convenient medical care from Concentra, which includes more than 310 national occupational, urgent, and primary care medical centers.  The company employs qualified physicians, licensed therapists, occupational health specialists, and trained medical technicians to deliver exceptional heath care to patients across the country.  Learn more about Concentra, including its new expansion into primary care, by visiting
