Bartlett-Based MOGA Expands Practice to Become One of the Region's Largest Women's Healthcare Providers
One of Bartlett's newest Headquarter operations recently announced a merger that will make them one of the largest women's health care providers in southeast. Memphis Obstetrics and Gynecologist Association (MOGA) opened their newly constructed 16,000 SF Headquarters in Bartlett in December of 2019.
On February 1, 2020, they officially merged with Women's Health Specialists, adding them to the network of MOGA divisions including Mestemacher Clinic for Women and Women’s Physicians Group. As reported by the Memphis Business Journal, MOGA will now have "39 health care providers and over 150 local employees across eight Memphis-area locations. " MOGA President, Dr. Aric Giddens, says this merger will allow them to offer their patients services that the two groups could not do on their own, including in-office lab work and diagnostic mammograms.
