“Ten years ago, we built this company onour belief that talented, properly trained physician assistants and nursepractitioners should operate at the top of their licensing to deliver qualitycare,” said Dr. Mitchell. “We developed a detailed, structured training program,including lectures, tests, and on-site training and evaluations, to equip thesepractitioners to be highly functioning hospitalists working in concert withdoctors. Quality with cost reduction is our biggest differentiator—we do itbetter than anyone else, and it has allowed us to grow organically very quicklyover the past 10 years. In looking to the future, we wanted to map a deliberategrowth plan, and that was the catalyst for the new identity—to strengthen andto better communicate who we are to our staff, and to the market.”
“Weunderstood that in order to meet our ambitious growth goals, we needed anidentity that could grow with us,” said Dr. Davis. “But it’s more than a namechange. Adfinitas means relationship.It honors everything we have built over the past decade—our partnership withclients and commitment to the patients we serve—and creates a foundation forour firm’s next steps. Adfinitas Health maintains the vision and core valuesupon which our firm was established, while providing a more distinct identitythat is scalable, enduring, and enhances our company’s values.”
