The Mexico Ledger recently wrote an article about the opening of Cornerstone Family Medicine in Mexico, Missouri. It is the first practice for Drs. Zach Treat and Alex Finck after completing medical school and residency at the University of Missouri. Cornerstone Family Medicine is part of the Noble Health umbrella, both of which represent a progressive approach to rural medicine. Noble Health states its mission.
Our mission is to provide high-quality medical care that addresses the needs of the communities we serve. Our goal is to serve the community and its residents with comprehensive medical services delivered at reasonable prices and with the highest integrity. We will work diligently and forthrightly with local, state and federal governments towards a sustainable model that provides medical services for all.
In December the pair had settled on a location and were close to working out the details for their own clinic in Mexico when Noble Health approached them. The executives at Noble, which owns Audrain Community Hospital, had earlier floated the idea of a DPC clinic and were keen on attracting new and young physicians to the area.
“They’ve been great partners,” Treat said. “They’re exceptional to work with.”
It is interesting to see how a DPC practice can operate under the umbrella of a larger corporation and in a rural area. Keep us posted.
