The UMass Memorial Medical Group Difference
UMass Memorial Medical Group is one of the largest and most experienced caregiver networks on the East Coast.
Our 1,100 medical group doctors see patients at more than 70 convenient locations in central Massachusetts. Our health care professionals are medical school faculty members, researchers and lifelong learners. Above all, they’re compassionate caregivers.
As a primary care physician in our Managed Care Network, the comprehensive care our PCPs provide to the majority of families across Central Massachusetts is truly irreplaceable. We know that for them and their teams of physician assistants, nurse practitioners and medical assistants, their work is more than a job — it’s a calling. In honor of National Primary Care Week and Primary Care Month, we talked to some of our primary care providers from across the UMass Memorial Health Care system to find out what they love about their job. And, we're inviting our patients to sing our PCPs praises on Facebook!
Everyday Innovators guest blogger Jonathan Gerber, MD, chief of the hematology/oncology division and medical director of the UMass Memorial Health Care Cancer Center, shares his vision to be one of the best cancer centers in the country while maintaining the “family-like atmosphere.” According to Dr. Gerber, the key is being a part of an academic medical center to deliver high-quality care with access to cutting-edge clinical trials, while also offering compassionate, personalized care by dedicated front-line caregivers. “It’s been almost a year since I joined the Medical Center, and what strikes me most is the family atmosphere here,” says Dr. Gerber. “We offer top-quality care to cancer patients and their families right in their own backyards – there’s no need to go to Boston when proven care is so close to where they live and work. Our staff plays an enormous role in creating this family-like environment where everyone feels welcomed.”
The Medical School and VA Western Massachusetts Healthcare System have formally announced plans to construct a new, community-based outpatient clinic on the Medical School Campus. "UMass Medical School feels entirely proud to partner with the VA to create a modern, state-of-the-art and innovative center of care for veterans in our region who have given so much to our nation," said Medical School Chancellor Michael Collins, MD. Occupying 53,000 square feet on the first two levels of a newly constructed, four-story building, the outpatient facility will provide primary care and specialty services.
