In August 2011, Southern Ohio Medical Center partnered with Apogee Physicians, one of the nation’s leading hospitalist groups. A hospitalist is a specialist in internal medicine who solely treats patients in the hospital around the clock. Uniquely, Apogee is completely owned and operated by physicians who understand the business of medicine inside and out. The company is obsessively passionate about being the best and is guided by their mission statement, “What’s best for the patient is best for the practice.”
