Fallon Clinic to change name to Reliant Medical Group
Fallon Clinic, a large multi-specialty medical group practice in Central Massachusetts, has announced that it will be changing its name this fall to Reliant Medical Group. The organization also will be changing its logo to reflect its affiliation with Atrius Health. As an Atrius Health affiliate, Fallon Clinic will continue to function as a locally operated, multi-specialty medical group serving Central Massachusetts. Name confusion with Fallon Community Health Plan has been pervasive since the two organizations split in 2004. Reliant Medical Group will have the same physicians, the same offices, accept the same insurances, and provide the same personalized care and service that has become a hallmark of the organization.
