Steward Medical Group Operates in 9 States
We are committed to the communities we serve and provide the highest quality of care to our patients, working collaboratively to ensure every patient receives the most comprehensive care at an affordable cost.
Our strength lies in our commitment to, and success in, treating the complete patient in the right place, at the right time. We provide care annually for more than 2.2 million patients.
Steward Medical Group has practices across the nation in Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Texas.
Coordinated Care for Optimal Outcomes
Our primary care physicians are partners with our patients, guiding them through diagnoses and treatment decisions, working in partnership with specialists, and taking into account patients’ concerns and values when determining an appropriate treatment plan.
We coordinate patient care across our system for optimal results. We also strive to make access to physicians and practices as easy as possible for patients, as well as convenient. Steward Medical Group patients are able to pre-register for office visits from home or work, or while traveling, schedule their next appointment with their doctor online or on their phone. We also provide patients the ability to order prescription refills and check financial medical statements on their computer, phone, or tablet.
The care we provide at Steward Medical Group is rooted in evidence-based medicine that blends research with our providers’ expertise and the values and preferences of our patients, to deliver the best care possible. Our clinicians stay current with the most up-to-date studies, undergo continual medical education courses annually, and work with the latest data available to draw upon for their specialties. This approach helps to improve the quality of care we provide, and improves results for our patients.
We Speak Your
At Steward Medical Group, we also speak our patients’ language. We have a vibrant Interpreter Services program that provides patient access to a medical interpreter who can assist them during their appointments. This telephonic service is available 24/7. Some of our practices also offer video interpreter availability.
Physician-Led Care Team
Our physician practices are supported by clinical teams of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and certified nursing assistants who work together to organize patient care.
Meet Our Physician Leaders
As a physician-led organization, we are able to keep our primary focus on our patients and our practices. Like our providers, our leaders have undergone rigid medical training and have real-life experience in the day-to-day life of medical practices which enables them to be strong advocates for our physicians. Most importantly, our leaders have treated many patients in their careers and are attuned to the various needs our patients have, and as well as patients’ expectations of their healthcare providers. Together, this allows Steward Medical Group to ensure the delivery of compassionate care in a setting close to where our patients live and work.
