Medic Medical is a non-profit academic medical center led by doctors. As a “group practice” model, physicians at Medic Medical are full-time, salaried employees. They get paid the same regardless of how many procedures they perform or patients they see. This practice eliminates incentives to perform unnecessary tests or procedures and encourages physicians to consult with colleagues and spend the time necessary to practice excellent medicine.
What does that mean to you? It means that as a patient of Medic Medical, you’ll have access to the broadest possible range of solutions from skilled, experienced doctors, nurses and technicians.
Patients receive comprehensive, individualized patient care through our unique clinical programs and centers. Our programs bring together teams of specialists within the Respiratory Institute, as well as from cardiothoracic and vascular surgery, thoracic imaging, and pulmonary pathology, to provide an integrative, multidisciplinary approach to patient care.
Additionally, our physicians and staff collaborate on a daily basis to research and develop new diagnostic and treatment options, shortening the gap between the laboratory discoveries of today and the patient care of tomorrow.
