Welcome GIF Welcome to the website for Hightstown Medical Associates, a primary care internal medicine practice. The physicians of Hightstown Medical Associates are all board certified internists, specialists in the care of adult patients. We care for patients from age 18 through adulthood. When medical conditions outside of our specialty arise (such as pregnancy or the need for surgery), we coordinate care with these specialists to assure that our patients' needs are met.

HMA News

Happy Birthday HMA -- January 2, 2019
1969 was a momentous year. Sure, there was that "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" moon walk. And a bunch of musicians got together in the mud at Woodstock. The US Air Force officially ended its investigation into UFOs. ARPANET was launched, the predecessor to the Internet. The Boeing 747 and the Concord made their first flights. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (movie), The Godfather (book) and Abbey Road (Beatles last album) released. The Miracle Mets win the World Series and Willie Mays becomes the first MLB player since Babe Ruth to hit 600 home runs (without steroids!). And a whole bunch of famous people were born. But the really momentous event of 1969 was the formation of Hightstown Medical Associates. This year is our 50th Anniversary. A lot has happened over those years, including our becoming part of the University of Pennsylvania Health System for the second time. So party on in our honor. And say Happy Birthday when you are in the office!

Now we are Penn Medicine (Again!) -- January 1, 2019
With the start of 2019, and the merger of the Princeton Healthcare System into the University of Pennsylvania Healthcare System, we are once again* Penn Medicine!

Our official name is now Penn Medicine Princeton Medicine Physicians - Hightstown Medical Associates, but we are the same HMA you have known since 1969. We have the same address and phone number, and the same commitment to your care that you have always known. But now we have access to all of the resources of the Penn Health System, including their world-renowned specialists. And, since we are on PennChart, the Penn implementation of Epic, we share records with Penn and any Princeton Medicine Physician you see. Or any other care you receive by an Epic doc nationally!

* We were part of Penn from 1995-2000 - life goes full circle!

Princeton Medicine Affiliation -- July 1, 2016
As of July 1, 2016 we have strengthened our affiliation with the University Medical Center of Princeton by joining Princeton Medicine.

For us, this means that we will be in a better position to weather the storms coming in Healthcare & continue to provide the best care possible. For you, our patients, it should be completely transparent; nothing really changes in how we operate, including our hours, location, or the care that you receive.  Read more...
