Two Local Primary Care Practices Joining Forces in 2019:

Medical Associates of Central VA will join CVFP Medical Group to become Lynchburg's largest family practice and internal medicine group.

Medical Associates of Central Virginia will join CVFP Medical Group effective January 1, 2019. The two primary care practices will continue to provide services under one name, CVFP Medical Group, and Medical Associates will remain at their current location of 2215 Landover Place in Lynchburg.

“The blending of these two, independent groups combines and strengthens our resources in the field of primary care for the Greater Lynchburg area,” stated Dr. Thomas Eppes, President of CVFP Medical Group. “We are committed to healthcare excellence with a clear strategy of providing high quality healthcare services to patients in a cost-effective way.” Shawn Crawford, CEO of CVFP Medical Group, notes medical cost and access are more important than ever. “With a shortage of primary care providers in this region, joining forces will allow us to collaboratively recruit and attract the best and brightest talent.”

“Both Dr. Eppes and I are excited to bring together two top quality, long-established primary care practices to deliver the best medical care for patients and the communities we serve,” said Dr. Daniel Horton, current President of Medical Associates of Central VA. “We are committed to making the integration for our patients as smooth as possible. We want our patients to know they’ll have the same access to physicians and receive the highest standard of healthcare they have come to know and trust.”
