For example, the Northern California Medical Association has seven primary care physicians and eight cardiac doctors only half a mile away from our community. Our Medical Director for skilled nursing is part of this group. This is especially beneficial if someone is moving from out of town or state because we can help them obtain a great primary care physician that is located nearby.
