With this partnership in place, PeakMed will provide One Medical a strong regional presence and additions of exceptional leadership capabilities. Additionally, PeakMed’s unique value proposition and care offering will supplement One Medical’s portfolio of services and allow One Medical to continue to expand into new geographies and end markets.

“We are ecstatic to be partnering with One Medical, a company that I have admired from afar for quite some time. We believe the addition of PeakMed’s locations and the strong team we have built will allow One Medical to grow its presence in Colorado and the surrounding area in an impactful way,” said Dr. Mark Tomasulo, CEO and Founder of PeakMed. “We are very thankful to Westcove who provided us thoughtful guidance and advocated for our interests through every step of the process. Westcove was able to effectively communicate our value proposition to the market, manage a robust auction process with terrific prospective partners, and navigate us through the complexities of completing a transaction.”

Abe M’Bodj, Vice President at Westcove, comments, “Westcove couldn’t be happier for Dr. Tomasulo and PeakMed as they embark on this next chapter. It was a privilege to advise PeakMed throughout this process and we deeply admire what Dr. Tomasulo, and his team have built over these last 8 years.
