Health Power 25: 17. Benito Alvarez

Independent physician groups have become somewhat of an endangered species in recent years with the consolidation in the healthcare industry.

Benito Alvarez, CEO, ProHealth Physicians

Benito Alvarez has led one of the largest doctor groups in the state that has been aggressive in buying up smaller practices.

Alvarez last year became CEO of ProHealth Physicians, the largest non-hospital-owned doctor practice in the state with more than 400 primary and specialty-care providers.

UnitedHealth Group’s OptumCare unit acquired a part of ProHealth in 2015, a sure sign of the company’s strength.

Alvarez is an obstetrician-gynecologist who was formerly president of Cleveland Clinic Akron General’s physician group in Ohio. He attended Columbia University Medical School and completed his residencies at Cleveland’s Mount Sinai Medical Center.
