At the core of our business model is our specialized physician-partner structure. This strategic partnership empowers our physicians by enabling them to be directly involved in developing their cardiovascular facility and participating in key decisions while maintaining a majority stake in the facility. Therefore, our physician partners share decision-making authority with us on various strategic matters such as:
- Site selection
- Facility size and layout
- Marketing plan
- Operational matters relating to the development of clinical care protocols
- Supply selection and usage
- Equipment purchases
- Patient procedure scheduling
- Local staff and management team selection
On a highly professional quality of life level, we resolve the frustration that physicians often experience with service at other cath lab locations. Why settle for a lesser solution?
WE SUPPORT HOSPITAL/PHYSICIAN RELATIONSHIPS
NCP knows how to work with hospitals. We designed, developed, and managed outpatient cardiac cath labs, hospital-based CV programs and surgical centers in partnership with cardiologists, vascular specialists and hospital partners. We recognize that there are situations where the right physician partnership can be advantageous to a local hospital partner. We have successfully developed different types of relationships with hospitals with some centers that range from an equity joint venture or management relationship to a facility lease on their campus. The key is selecting the right relationship with the right partner while maintaining the appropriate amount of control.
