— The MGMA Performance and Practices of Successful Medical Groups  2012 Report Based on 2011 Data identified Cullman Primary Care Multi-Specialty Group as a “Better Performer” because of superior operational performance compared with similar medical group practices nationwide. The medical group was recognized in the areas of Profitability and Cost Management, Accounts Receivable and Patient Satisfaction. This is Cullman Primary Care Multi-Specialty Group’s sixth year to be selected as a better performer.  

Cullman Primary Care Multi-Specialty Group currently has 25 physicians and three nurse practitioners that practice in 12 different specialties. Additionally, the group provides advanced diagnostic imaging including MRI, CT, Nuclear Medicine, Digital Mammography, Ultrasound, and Bone Density Testing as well as a Clinical Laboratory, Physical Therapy, and Pharmacy.  

“We are pleased to be among such a successful assembly of our peer groups,” said CEO John Reynolds. “The success of Cullman Primary Care Multi-Specialty Group is based on the belief that the patient always comes first. The group’s vision has been to conveniently provide health care services to our patients so they do not have to travel lengthy distances for their medical care. We are committed to providing comprehensive medical care that is community oriented in a compassionate and cost effective manner.”

The MGMA report, a benchmarking standard among medical groups for more than a decade, was produced using data from respondents to the MGMA Cost Survey: 2012 Report Based on 2011 Data as well as data from a questionnaire that assessed management behaviors, practices and procedures of better performers. The report profiles medical practices that have demonstrated success in one or more areas: profitability and cost management; productivity, capacity and staffing; accounts receivable and collections; patient satisfaction; and managed care operations.
