More Information

If it seems like Reliant Medical Group has added new facilities across Central Massachusetts every few months, that’s because it practically has. Under Elsawy, its leader since 2016, Reliant has jumped onto the trend of bringing outpatient healthcare services closer to patients and leveraged the clout and resources the $100-billion Optum brought since acquiring Reliant in 2018. Reliant has opened new facilities in places like the Auburn Mall, Bay State Commons in Westborough and the Greendale Mall in Worcester.

Elsawy oversees a network with 2,500 employees, including 300 physicians, who care for 317,000 patients annually. Under Elsawy, Reliant is still working to bring better care closer to patients, opening The Surgery Center in Shrewsbury last year in a partnership with Shields Health Care Group and UMass Memorial Health Care.

Where is Central Mass. headed? We will continue to be a center of medical excellence and innovation.

He’s a Cavalier: As a long suffering fan and alumni of the University of Virginia, seeing UVA win the NCAA National Basketball Championship this year was one of the most memorable sporting experiences for me, particularly after a disappointing loss last year.
