Regional One Health and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) have partnered to create a new academic physician group that will enhance the delivery of specialty care and hospital-based medical services in the Memphis area. The new group, called UT Regional One Physicians, launched October 1, 2014, and includes many UT Medical Group, Inc. (UTMG) physicians who have a strong history of
affiliation with Regional One Health.
UT Regional One Physicians will provide services in several adult medical specialties including cardiology, obstetrics/gynecology, maternal fetal medicine, infectious disease, and hematology, as well as several services provided in both the hospital and outpatient settings such as surgeons, radiologists, and anesthesiologists. Between 175 and
180 physicians and advanced practitioners are joining UT Regional One Physicians.
“With the creation of UT Regional One Physicians, Regional One Health is changing the way we think about how physician practices are created, governed, and managed,” said Reginald Coopwood, M.D., President and CEO of Regional One Health. “By working together, we hope to improve the continuity and quality of patient care and create a more efficient health care delivery system for the patients we serve.”
All providers in UT Regional One Physicians will be UTHSC faculty members, and the group will be governed by an eight-member board of directors including practicing physicians. The practice group is the largest academic-affiliated physician organization in the Mid-South. For more information visit their website at RegionalOneHealth.org/utrop.
