The Physician Network
The Physician Network is a physician-led ministry dedicated to improving patient outcomes by enabling its providers to focus entirely on what they do best -- practicing their specialties and providing superior health care services Other Network professionals work alongside the providers to handle the business, staffing and financial aspects of the practice. The end result: An extraordinary, collaborative network of community-based providers with all the benefits of a private practice -- and all the resources, support and efficiencies of a first-rate health system.
