About SHC Medical Partners
SHC Medical Partners was formed in 2003 in response to the need for skilled nursing facilities (SNF) to have more frequent, on-site medical services. Today, we are a world-class medical provider organization that brings personalized medical care to those we serve. We currently provide medical services in 7 southeastern States and are very excited to be expanding our coverage area and adding new service lines! Our dedicated and compassionate team is committed to building a trusting and rewarding relationship with those we care for and work with by providing our services with integrity and serving with humility.
The evolution of the healthcare system in the U.S. is moving toward value-based reimbursement models and access to affordable insurance coverage. The demand for medical providers is further increased by the emergence of 71.3 million aging baby boomers and resulting medical advances that enable quality living through management of chronic diseases.
The Primary Care provider remains the sole trusted authority for coordinating quality care, yet the shortage of physicians is at a critical level. The article, “Direct Primary Care: Key Issues and the Future” by Dave Chase, stated this primary care physician shortage is estimated to be 35,000 to 44,000 by year 2025 (Forbes, July 2013).
We believe that these realities create an historic opportunity for SHC Medical Partners which is to respond to this growing need by providing quality medical care with strong care coordination at the critical place of need – the post-acute settings, a model that is deeply embraced by our medical providers.
