Cigna Medical Group to Expand Health Services to More People, Changes Name to Evernorth Care Group

PHOENIX – Sept. 1, 2022 – Cigna Medical Group is changing its name to Evernorth Care Group today, Sept. 1, as part of Cigna’s new health services business Evernorth. In addition, Evernorth Care Group will begin expanding access to its health care services to more people in the community through partnership with additional health plans.

“We are excited to introduce our new name to the community where we have been providing health care services for over 50 years,” said Jeff Holt, president and general manager for Evernorth Care Group. “Improving access to affordable, high quality health care has never been more important. We look forward to serving more people and partnering across Evernorth to offer a wider range of health services, including home care and enhanced digital capabilities, to our patients.”

Evernorth Care Group is nationally recognized for high quality care and exceptional service, with a 96 percent patient satisfaction rating. The group includes 20 health care centers located across the Valley providing primary, specialty, urgent care, and virtual care, as well as onsite pharmacies, vision and hearing centers, lab services, and an outpatient surgery center. Patients will continue to receive the same trusted care and service they’ve come to know from the same doctors and care teams, and will continue to have access to Evernorth Care Group as an in-network provider for Cigna insurance plans.

In celebration, there was a name unveiling ceremony today at the Phoenix Central Multi-Specialty Center and Urgent Care located at 3003 N. 3rd St. in Phoenix. Signage on the 20 health care center buildings will begin to change to Evernorth Care Group later this month.

In support of the health and well-being of the community, Evernorth Care Group will have a school supply and snack drive throughout the month of September at all of its centers. Employees and patients can donate supplies and snacks that will be provided to students and families at Title 1 schools across the Valley through a partnership with Homeless Engagement Lift Partnership (HELP).
