Our Organization

The NEQCA network, founded in 2005 by Tufts Medical Center and Primary Care, LLC as a
non-profit  corporation, includes solo and group practices, Independent Practice Associations (IPAs), Physician Hospital Organizations, and academic and community physicians.  NEQCA physicians are organized into groups called Local Care Organization (LCOs). LCO physicians are on staff at community hospitals throughout eastern Massachusetts, keeping local care at local hospitals while working with and referring to NEQCA colleagues at Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children for tertiary care needs.

NEQCA LCOs include:

  • Cape Physicians, LLC 
  • Hallmark Health PHO
  • Healthcare South, PC
  • Highland Healthcare Associates, IPA 
  • MassBay Medical Associates, LLC 
  • Merrimack Valley IPA 
  • MetroWest Physicians AHO
  • Milton Primary Care, LLC 
  • PediSouth LCO, LLC 
  • Primary Care Medical Associates
  • Plymouth Bay Primary Care, LLC 
  • Tufts Medical Center Physicians Organization 
  • Woburn Pediatrics

Governance

The majority of NEQCA’s Board of Trustees seats are held by community physicians. The Board also includes a community hospital seat and an independent seat to ensure the inclusion of crucial voices in discussions.
