Dedicated to serving patients wherever they live or work, McLeod Physician Associates (MPA) is a network of more than 150 physicians in more than 50 medical offices located throughout eight counties of South and North Carolina. MPA physicians and their staffs provide extraordinary medical care encompassing a large spectrum of specialties including Family Medicine and Internal Medicine; Pediatrics and Pediatric focused Critical Care, Orthopedics, Cardiology, Endocrinology and Diabetes Education; Obstetrics and Gynecology and Maternal-Fetal Medicine; General Surgery and Trauma Services; Cardiology, Vascular Surgery and Cardiothoracic Surgery; Oncology and Hematology; Pulmonology and Critical Care; Nephrology; Neurology; Psychiatry, and Urology.
Patients experience unique benefits by choosing MPA for their healthcare needs. Because this large network is a part of the McLeod Health system, practices can more expediently obtain and share medical records and diagnostic reports for consultations. This provides patients with continuity of care between MPA offices, and makes those visits more efficient for the patient. In addition, MPA provides the support staff and resources needed for operating a physician's office, including financial support and human resources. This collaboration allows MPA physicians to focus more time on their patients' medical needs, and also helps keep costs down. Because of its size, MPA is able to negotiate prices with vendors and suppliers, helping to keep purchasing prices down, too.
MPA also offers patients living in rural areas more convenient access to highly skilled physicians. Counties where MPA practices are located include Florence, Darlington, Lee, Sumter, Marion, Dillon, Horry and Brunswick counties. When recruiting physicians and staff, MPA looks for candidates who are a good fit with the McLeod culture – patient focused and quality driven. To add to this mission, MPA continually assesses and advances the use of technology in medicine, and employs state-of-the-art management tools and information systems.
"We are experiencing great progress and look forward to continued expansion," said Dane Ficco, Senior Vice President of McLeod Physician Associates. "MPA is strategically growing to bring McLeod Physicians and quality care to more patients."
