Cheyenne Medical Specialists announced today it will partner with Poudre Valley Medical Group based in Fort Collins, Colo. The agreement is expected to be signed in April.

Cheyenne Medical Specialists, 5050 Powderhouse Road, is a multi-specialty medical clinic that has been caring for Wyoming residents for more than 30 years. The clinic's 11 providers represent specialties in family medicine, internal medicine, gastroenterology, neurology, women's health, occupational health, rheumatology and endocrinology.

With more than 170 providers in 28 medical clinics, Poudre Valley Medical Group is the largest and fastest-growing physician group in the region. The multi-specialty group is part of Poudre Valley Health System, which provides health care, wellness services and products in Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska.

"We are excited about our partnership with Poudre Valley Medical Group because it is a perfect fit," said Dr. Peter Perakos, former chief of staff at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and Cheyenne Medical Specialist gastroenterologist. "We share the same values and commitment to improve the quality of life for our patients while meeting their health care needs."

"Together, we form a great team that is focused on providing world-class health care with a mutual desire to build healthier communities throughout the region," said Russ Branzell, Poudre Valley Medical Group chief executive officer.

Patients will continue to be cared for by the same compassionate doctors they have come to know and trust and do so in the same location, said Perakos. "In addition, we will continue to utilize and refer patients to resources within the Cheyenne area as we have in the past. As always, we will continue to honor and support our patients' choice for inpatient care."
