Agile Occupational Medicine announced that it had completed its merger with Pinnacle HealthCare. The combined practices provide 14 clinics throughout California and Yuma, Arizona, creating the fourth-largest occupational medical group in California.

Pinnacle Healthcare was founded in 1999 with the goal of providing high-quality medical care for non life-threatening situations, as well as occupational medicine options and urgent care.

According to its website “Hundreds of employers in Salinas, CA, Monterey, San Benito, Santa Cruz, and Merced counties choose Pinnacle Healthcare to be their sole provider in treating and managing employee and workplace health needs.”

Agile currently has fourteen clinics that it says is strategically located to achieve its goal of serving a majority of employers throughout California.

Agile focuses on forming partnerships with local businesses to ensure that the medical needs of local employees are addressed. From DOT physicals and drug screenings to workplace injury treatment, Agile offers a wide range of occupational health programs that help employers maintain a healthy and safe workforce while providing cost-effective health care for companies and employees.

After this merger, the two combined companies say they will be the “fourth-largest occupational medical group in California.”

The Agile Founder and CEO said “Agile and Pinnacle share a common vision of delivering the highest quality care and support to injured workers and employers. Coming together under a single company will allow us to partner in that effort and provide better services to a larger audience throughout California and southwest Arizona. Our teams have worked together on strategic initiatives in the past, and through those processes, have developed a shared vision for improving medical care in the workers’ compensation market to support employment-related health services better.”

“Joining Agile is a big win for Pinnacle. We have built a quality clinic group over the past 20 years, and Agile brings the funding and enterprise platforms that allow us to expand significantly going forward,” said Ernesto Alvero, PA, former CEO of Pinnacle who will serve as the Senior Vice President of Clinic Operations for Agile. “We see this as two great companies coming together to form greater value than the sum of the parts. It’s a real win for both organizations and our customers.”
