UnitedHealth Group quietly buys Oregon medical groups

UnitedHealth Group subsidiary Optum has quietly acquired at least two independent primary care groups in Oregon, according to The Lund Report.

Optum has purchased Eugene-based Oregon Medical Group and Portland-based GreenField Health. Combined, the two systems have about 120 doctors and clinicians at 11 facilities. 

GreenField Health was purchased last year and Oregon Medical Group in late 2020, according to the Lund Report.

UnitedHealth never publicly announced the purchases. A spokesperson declined to provide the Lund Report with a list of Optum facilities in Oregon or the U.S. and would not comment on past purchases or future plans.

Nationwide, UnitedHealth Group has purchased about 1,500 primary care and specialty facilities, totaling 60,000 physicians.
