Reliant Medical Group, Optum Complete Combination
April 2, 2018 – Reliant Medical Group is now part of OptumCare, the healthcare delivery arm of Optum, a healthcare innovation and technology company, following all necessary approvals from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
As part of Optum, Reliant Medical Group will continue to be locally operated and serve its patients under the Reliant Medical Group and Southboro Medical Group brands in the Central and Metro West regions of the state.
