Surgical Associates of MidMichigan Now MidMichigan Physicians Group
Surgical Associates of MidMichigan, a general surgery practice in Midland, is now MidMichigan Physicians Group. While the practice name changed, the office will remain at its current location, Towsley Building, 4201 Campus Ridge Drive, Suite 2400 in Midland. Providers now employed by MidMichigan Physicians Group are General Surgeon James Shepich, M.D., and Physician Assistants Nichola Jardas, P.A.-C., and Laura Scott, P.A.-C.
Dr. Shepich and his staff are committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care for the prevention, treatment and management of conditions and diseases. The team has advanced training in surgical treatments of the gallbladder, gastrointestinal system and colon, as well as vein treatment. Special procedures include daVinci® robotic surgery for gallbladder disease and comprehensive wound care and management.
“This general surgical practice has been in Midland for 22 years, and I saw this as the best way to continue serving families for the long term”, said Dr. Shepich. “It is getting more difficult for small privately-owned practices to deliver great patient care while keeping up with all of the new regulatory requirements and the day-to-day operations of running a business. I was looking for a partner who could help with those operational tasks so we could focus on what we do best – taking excellent care of our patients.”
MidMichigan Physicians Group, a subsidiary of MidMichigan Health, is a large multi-specialty practice currently covering more than 30 medical specialties in 16 communities across middle and northern Michigan. MidMichigan Physicians Group will own and operate the practice, employ the providers and staff, and provide centralized support services such as billing, physician recruiting, human resources, regulatory compliance, marketing and information technology.
