A New Concept in Convenient Community Care: Physicians Plus

Jul 01, 1999

North of Findlay, Ohio; Physicians Plus is more than a building. Physicians Plus is a concept which beckons clients to try a new way of receiving health care. The concept is simple: give a patient control and place them in an environment that encourages health through clarity and convenience. Prompt access to services is a primary convenience criterion. Depending on health care needs, services on-site include diagnostics and treatment, x-ray imaging, pharmacy, physical therapy and lab services including drive-in blood draw and blood pressure services. The essence of Physicians Plus as a building and as a concept is giving control of the delivery of health care to the patient. The desire is not to automate the practice of medicine, but to automate a patient's access to medicine.
