SMH Physicians Network

Established in 2006, the SMH Physicians Network provides access to many of the region’s most accomplished physicians and nurse practitioners, plus same-day appointments for family practice patients and Saturday appointments for pediatric patients.

Our network encompasses a large group of multispecialty experts who offer a wide array of quality healthcare services. Plus, our providers have access to a comprehensive, clinically integrated system for the coordination of care — allowing for ease of referrals between clinics, sharing of patient health information and improved outcomes.

The partnership has added new services and medical specialists to our community that previously did not exist, such as:

  • Cancer clinical trials
  • Expanded cardiology services including 24/7 on-call heart surgery coverage
  • Robot-assisted surgery
  • 24 recruited physicians who provide primary care and specialized services locally
  • Specialty clinics, including the Comprehensive Weight Loss Center and Back and Spine Center
