Adfinitas HEalth Leadership

In 2007, Doug Mitchell MD, MBA, and Hung Davis MD, CMD, founded the company now known as Adfinitas Health (formerly MDICS - Maryland Inpatient Care Specialists), recognizing an opportunity for physician assistants and nurse practitioners to support doctors in delivering high-quality care. The renaming to Adfinitas Health marks 10 years of growth for the company and a continued commitment to optimizing value for its patients and clients.

Adfinitas Health currently serves over 50 healthcare systems, hospitals, and post–acute care centers, with approximately 400 employees. The company operates across the Mid-Atlantic region, delivering high-quality, cost-effective integrated medical services.

Drs. Mitchell and Davis, two board–certified internists, built the company on the belief that talented, properly trained physician assistants and nurse practitioners should operate at the top of their licensing to deliver outstanding care. Combining their strong business and clinical skills with a desire to create a responsive culture, Drs. Mitchell and Davis officially launched the Advanced Practice Provider training program for PAs and NPs in 2011. This program has been critical to the company’s model of success.

In 2007, Dr. Doug Mitchell co-founded with Dr. Hung Davis the firm that is now Adfinitas Health. A physician pioneer who possesses a strong business and clinical acumen, Dr. Mitchell sets the strategic direction for the company and directs its hospital operations, supervising the firm’s hospitalist leaders, practitioners, and operational teams.

Dr. Mitchell's leadership, coupled with his drive towards rigorous performance standards, has helped to save the firm’s hospital and post-acute partners millions of dollars. As a leader who created innovative quality initiatives and embraced value-based care from the company's inception, he has been instrumental in improving core measures, quality metrics, and patient satisfaction results for clients.

Other notable initiatives include being among the first to expand the role of hospitalists to include surgical and specialty medicine and the launch of a training program for Advanced Practice Providers in 2011. He is dedicated to providing a work-life balance for the professionals he hires, and to creating an environment in which they feel fulfilled by their work. This is reflected in the company’s “culture of yes.” Introduced early on, the “culture of yes” remains a strongly held core value that focuses on building deep interpersonal connections amongst the care team and being highly responsive to patients and clients while providing quality medical care.
