COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Kaiser Permanente Colorado, the state’s largest nonprofit health plan, today announced the addition of three board certified physicians at its two medical offices in Colorado Springs.
Aimee Battaglia, DO, is a family medicine physician who will provide care to members of all ages at the Briargate Medical Offices. Joining Dr. Battaglia at Briargate is Heather Cassidy, MD, an internal medicine physician who will see members ages 18 and older. Pamela Coffey, MD, is also a family medicine physician delivering care at the Parkside Medical Offices.
These three new physicians are joining Kaiser Permanente during a time of significant growth for the health plan in Southern Colorado. Last month, Kaiser Permanente announced the addition of two physicians at its Parkside Medical Offices. Over the past two years, Kaiser Permanente has opened the Parkside Medical Offices, begun seeing patients of all ages at its Briargate Medical Offices, started providing additional specialty services and increased the amount of affordable health plans offered in this region.
Dr. Battaglia earned her doctor of osteopathic medicine degree from Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tenn. before completing her residency in family medicine at the University of Tennessee. She joins Kaiser Permanente after practicing at the Arkansas Regional Medical Center in La Junta, Colo. Dr. Battaglia is passionate about providing quality care to aging populations. She established three residential assisted living homes in Highlands Ranch prior to attending medical school.
Following the completion of her medical doctorate at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Dr. Cassidy conducted her internal medicine residency at Brown University. There she served as chief resident before joining Brown's internal medicine faculty for two years. Since 2015, she has worked as an attending physician at the University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics. In addition to her responsibilities in primary care, Dr. Cassidy holds an appointment at the University of Colorado School of Medicine's new Colorado Springs Branch campus where she is the director for Community Engagement.
Dr. Coffey comes to Kaiser Permanente from Ohio, where she practiced as an urgent care physician. She earned her medical doctorate from the University of Kentucky and completed her residency in family medicine at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.
“Kaiser Permanente’s ability to deliver high-quality, convenient care requires highly trained and accomplished physicians to meet the health care needs of our members,” said C. Rocky White, MD, Kaiser Permanente’s Southern Colorado market medical director. “Our growing membership in Southern Colorado will be well-served with these three new physicians and our established care team.”
