Our staff work with and provide support to eight (8) Family Physicians who collectively form a Family Health Organization (FHO). In addition, each Family Physician independently employs and manages their own administrative staff.

Our Nurse Practitioners (NP) are registered nurses with additional education, training, and nursing experience that prepares them for advanced nursing practice. They provide a wide range of health services such as perform physical exams, order and interpret tests, diagnose and treat diseases and other health conditions, as well as prescribe medication. Nurse Practitioners work in conjunction with Physicians and collaboratively with other nursing colleagues and health-care providers, or they may work independently.
