About PCHP

In the 1980s, many of the medical offices of Primary Care Health Partners (PCHP) were part of Community Health Plan (commonly known as CHP). Later, California-based Kaiser Permanente purchased the CHP offices and managed them until Kaiser decided to leave the northeast in 1999. In January 2000, a group of primary care physicians formed PCHP with offices in both New York and Vermont. This created the largest privately-owned primary care medical group in the state of Vermont. Since 2000, PCHP has been expanding our services to more communities in New York and Vermont.
