FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 28, 2020
PRINE Health launches PRINE Vascular and Welcomes Dr. Dan Simon
PRINE Health is excited to announce its arrival into the Outpatient Vascular Lab space with the launch of PRINE Vascular!
Adding Dr. Dan Simon–a nationally recognized expert in the treatment of vascular disease–allows PRINE Health to venture into the outpatient surgery field of medicine with a focus on treating Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). This specific disease largely affects diabetic, hypertensive patients with known atherosclerosis. However, there is a strong albeit less well-known association with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Studies show that up to one-third of patients with CKD may have underlying peripheral vascular disease. It is with that in mind that PRINE Health has moved forward with plans to create a unique vascular program with an emphasis on kidney patients. Thus, finding an expert on PAD treatment who has performed thousands of cases comes as a huge addition to the PRINE Health team.
Dr. Dan Simon, a board-certified interventional Radiologist, returns to New Hyde Park after having worked in various parts of the country (including Washington D.C., New Jersey, and California). Prior to getting into the outpatient field, Dr. Simon was co-chair of interventional Radiology at North Shore University Hospital (Northwell) in Manhasset, NY. As a native New Yorker, Dr. Simon is excited to return back home to Long Island with his wife and children.
“We are beyond thrilled to have Dr. Simon join us as Chief of PRINE Vascular as we kick off our first outpatient vascular lab,” said Dr. Simon Prince, CEO of PRINE Health. “We’re excited about the future. We believe our vascular ambitions complement our strategic focus on kidney care and will generate great value for our patients.”

PRINE Health is a unique, multispecialty medical group focused on chronic kidney disease. PRINE launched last year with the merger of 6 independent nephrology groups to become the largest independent nephrology group in New York. In addition to the nephrologists, PRINE has added seasoned primary care physicians, podiatrists, and an interventional radiologist, and is involved in multiple ongoing conversations with other complementary specialties. There are currently 9 office locations and 18 dialysis center affiliations in Long Island and Queens.
PRINE also has a management company that is owned and governed by physicians. The MSO provides traditional practice management and population health services to the medical group. Over the last several months, PRINE has developed care management capabilities and several strategic relationships. PRINE has partnered with managed care payors and was recently selected by CMS to participate in a new value-based kidney care program, Kidney Care First in 2021. Additionally, PRINE has partnered with data scientists to use predictive analytics and artificial intelligence on their growing patient population as efforts are being made to get ready to take risks in this complex, costly CKD/ESRD population.
