San Francisco Business Times

When the news broke that Steve McDermott, chief executive officer at Hill Physicians Medical Group, was stepping down, several Bay Area health care insiders’ first reaction was that Hill might be “in play.” Hill Physicians “would be a logical one to buy,” said Wanda Jones, president of San Francisco’s New Century Healthcare Institute. “But it wouldn’t be cheap … and they’re not on the market, per se.” But such a deal could be feasible, possibly by Dignity Health (formerly known as Catholic Healthcare West ), which is already an equity partner in Hill Physicians’ PriMed management company.
