Unified Women’s Healthcare (UWH) of Texas' enrollment grew to more than 150 ob-gyn providers last year, offering them independence and the benefits associated with a single-specialty group.
"In joining the group, physicians gain the expertise of skilled professionals who give the doctors the tools and support they need to enjoy their daily work, while being part of something bigger," Adam Jay, UWH vice president of practice development and marketing, said in a company release. "We make running a successful medical practice easier, providing services and technology on a scale no single women's health practice can do alone."
The group, which also serves providers in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Washington, is the nation’s largest single-specialty group for ob-gyn physicians. UWH said market forces and industry consolidation are the leading factors pushing providers towards groups and said that its providers are drawn to its specialty focus on their needs.
"I'm thrilled to lead a group where our partners can concentrate on patient care excellence while highly trained experts handle accounting, billing and collections, e-health records, human resources, group purchasing and contracting,” UWH President Dr. Steven A. Suba said. “Now over 1,100 providers, including over 150 in Texas, have joined their colleagues to our mutual advantage."
