Arizona Priority Care is an affiliated office of Heritage Provider Network (HPN). HPN was established in 1979 when founder Dr. Richard Merkin was asked by a local health plan to create a medical group in an underserved area. As HPN implemented its comprehensive approach to care management, the group thrived beyond expectations. HPN’s success caught the attention of other health plans, who, over the years, requested that HPN duplicate this success in new geographic locations. Arizona is the most recent addition to the HPN family of health care.
