    "one of the last physician-owned practices"

    "Being part of our physician-owned practice is truly unique in today's healthcare landscape. Unlike many others, we have successfully resisted the allure of being absorbed by a large hospital system, allowing us to maintain our independence and focus on patient-centric care. Working with our dedicated team is a joy, as we not only cultivate innovative ideas but also witness them blossom into reality. Our commitment to autonomy and the ability to see our visions come to life sets us apart, creating a fulfilling and dynamic environment for both our team and the patients we serve." - Michelle Hershberger, BSN, RN, FACMPE
