Altais Clinical Services, a division of the healthcare services company Altais, and Brown & Toland Physicians, an independent network of more than 2,700 physicians serving more than 350,000 patients in the San Francisco Bay Area, have completed their affiliation. Pillsbury represented Brown & Toland Physicians.

The two organizations formally joined to expand the transformation of patient care for improved health outcomes at an affordable cost and accelerate the improvement of the physician and patient experience. Brown & Toland Physicians is now a subsidiary of Altais Clinical Services.

Brown & Toland Physicians will continue to operate under its current brand and continue to service all payers. As part of Altais Clinical Services, Brown & Toland Physicians now has access to additional capital, services and a wide range of programs and tools for physicians to operate independent practices under a value-based model.

The Pillsbury team was led by Los Angeles-based Health Care partner Gerry Hinkley and included Allen Briskin, Nathaniel Cartmell III, Julie Divola, Jonathan Ocker, Colleen Lamarre, Alex Lathrop and Gurpreet Bal. Additional support was provided by Kendy Chan, Jeong Choi, Bruce Ericson and Philip Tendler.
