Five leading medical groups have joined together as Atrius Health, a non-profit alliance, to transform the delivery of health care in eastern Massachusetts. Building on our long and proud history of high quality and preventive care, Dedham Medical Associates, Granite Medical, Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates, Southboro Medical Group and South Shore Medical Center are working together to create a new and proactive approach to patients' health, coordinated by the primary care doctor and medical team.
While each of our Atrius Health medical groups continues to serve its own patients, we also act in concert to bring a broader range of needed services to our communities. All groups share one electronic medical record system, increasing the ease with which patients access the wide range of specialists and diagnostic services across Atrius Health medical groups. Our practices work together to meet aggressive goals on issues ranging from diabetes treatment and cancer screening to decreasing wait time for patients and improving physician communication skills.
Atrius Health medical groups serve more than 700,000 adult and pediatric patients in over 2.4 million visits annually to 30 practice locations. Our medical groups include more than 800 physicians and 1,300 other medical professionals, with a combined total of almost 5,500 employees.
