A Foundation to Strengthen and Streamline Care
The Kaweah Delta Medical Foundation gives physicians the opportunity to
focus on practicing medicine, strengthens our region's ability to
recruit quality physicians and streamlines access to care, communications
and medical technologies. The physicians of
Visalia Medical Clinic (VMC) are the first to affiliate with Kaweah Delta Medical Foundation
– setting the stage for additional practices to join.
Kaweah Delta Medical Foundation is the only integrated medical network
in the Tulare Kings County area. At the center of our health care system is
Visalia Medical Clinic, a 75-year-old clinic offering primary care and a wide range of specialties.
A Foundation to Strengthen and Streamline Care - How the foundation was formed
What is a Medical Foundation?
It is an integrated network of physicians that streamlines access to care
and medical services and creates a seamless relationship between the local
hospital and local physicians
How Does A Medical Foundation Benefit Patients?
The foundation will help strengthen communications between physicians and
Kaweah Delta Health Care District and streamline scheduling and the delivery
of services with the hospital.
A medical foundation is a strong recruiting tool that will help address
our region’s shortage of general and specialty care providers today
and in the future.
The foundation will support wise investments in state-of-the-art medical
technology, which can lead to increased efficiencies and reduced costs.
Who Created Kaweah Delta Medical Foundation?
The foundation was formed by
Kaweah Delta Health Care District with
Visalia Medical Clinic, a 75-year-old practice owned by VMC’s 50 physicians. Additional
physician groups are expected to affiliate with the foundation because
of the benefits the foundation affords their practice.
