Committed to Serving You and Your Family

Vanguard Medical Group was created as a regional primary group practice in January 2012 through a merger of three established, well-known and successful primary care practices in northern New Jersey (Changebridge Medical Associates, Cranford Family Practice and Town Medical Associates). In 2014, two additional practice sites, at North Haledon (formerly High Mountain Health) and Lincoln Park, joined Vanguard. Most recently, the office in downtown Jersey City opened its doors in May 2016.

Many of the founding physicians have practiced for more than 20 years in their respective communities and are leaders in their local healthcare delivery systems. The driving force to develop a larger New Jersey family care practice was the recognition that the healthcare system was rapidly changing in ways that did not support small or solo independent physician practices. And yet, although growth is an imperative, the family care providers at Vanguard believe that a strong culture guided by a shared vision and governed by shared values must be at the core of this new organization.

Vanguard physicians have been at the forefront of family care in New Jersey, and our staff includes past presidents of the New Jersey Academy of Family Physicians, residency directors, family care department chairmen at our hospitals and faculty of our New Jersey medical schools.
