WHO WE ARE

Senior Medical Associates is San Diego's only multi-specialty medical group dedicated to connecting community healthcare systems and delivering clinical excellence, in mind and body, to facilities and clinics across San Diego County.

 

OUR VISION

To be the conduit for the momentum of success in San Diego healthcare.

 

MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to optimally address healthcare delivery system issues with innovative, tailored, well-executed and outcome-driven solutions.  The SMA team delivers solutions with on-site, state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary, evidence-based health services throughout San Diego County. Our team of dedicated leaders, providers & staff focus on a client-centered approach to consistently deliver high satisfaction and value.

 

OUR STORY

SMA was founded in 2006 by a few UC San Diego Physicians dedicated to clinical excellence and a mission to promote maximum wellbeing to San Diego area individuals.   After years of building collaborative relationships in the local healthcare community, our devotion to innovative, flexible and reliable service delivery has allowed us to bridge gaps in San Diego healthcare and promote wellbeing on a broader scale.   Our team initially focused on post-acute care and later spread through long term care communities, outpatient clinics and hospital settings throughout San Diego County.  Over the years we have added like-minded practitioners from across the country, and across several disciplines, to join our award-winning and dedicated team.

 

The Senior Medical Associates logo, representative of the infinity symbol, was designed to reflect our vision and mission statement, a neverending continuum of success in healthcare.  The image portrays the momentum created from partners who meet you where you are and guide you and your patients to where you need to go. Consistent. Loyal. Dedicated. Professional. Creating infinite possibilities.

The culture of Senior Medical Associates is patient-centric based. Our highly integrated approach drives a high octane patient experience throughout the continuum of care. Personally, I strive to improve each of our patient's experience while maintaining the triple aim. An interesting concept I appreciate is the unification of the Heart, Head, and Hand. The Heart represents the patient's feelings. The Head represents the patient's mindset. The Hand represents the patient's resolve. I strive to further optimize my patient's overall  experience. As a result, the triple aim is easily reached.
