Patient Centeredness

Patient centeredness plays a key role in the work and life of Guthrie. Watch this story to understand how much so.


Group practice is a philosophical concept, it's not a business model...the organization of physicians and all the staff and ancillary businesses around the needs of the patient in a collaborative manner is really the heart and soul of this organization.
