Long before Seasons Medical was founded the concepts of physician-driven, integrated, quality care were top of mind for the original founding practices: Targhee Women’s Center, Upper Valley Pediatrics, and Northridge Internal Medicine.
It didn’t take long for these providers to realize the benefits of partnering. They saw an opportunity to combine expertise in such a way where patients could have all of their medical needs met under one roof. It took a few months for these doctors to come up with the name Seasons Medical, but in the end the concept was all too clear: “healthcare for every season of life.”
Through the years that followed Seasons added nine additional healthcare providers, including a partnership with Family Medical Center in 2012, and the addition of mental health services in 2013.
From the very beginning, Seasons Medical’s focus has been in shaping and improving quality patient outcomes through this style of integration. Collaborating between providers and staff with common goals and interests, increasing specialty services, and more has not only improved patient’s experiences, but also gone a long way in improving some of the day to day work behind the scenes.
With the rising changes in healthcare we have experienced in our community, a closer partnership with Madison Memorial Hospital has never been more important. It’s the most natural next step on our path to integrated, quality, patient care and we ccouldn’tbe more excited.
“Our partnership with Madison Memorial represents an incredible opportunity for coordinating quality healthcare in our community. With some of the changes we’ve seen in healthcare, working closely together has never been more important. As leaders of integration in our community, we have put many years of work into helping shape and improve quality patient outcomes. We couldn’t be more pleased with this new partnership,” says Seasons Medical’s Board Chairman Robert C. Lofgran, MD.
Aligning our efforts and that of our Hospital will go a long way to strengthening the healthcare infrastructure of our community. We are excited about this new partnership and how this will shape the future of quality care in Southeast Idaho.
