Being a teaching hospital – in both orthopedics and family medicine – means Doctors Medical Center is attracting the best and the brightest to the Central Valley. These doctors are bringing their knowledge of the latest in healthcare to our communities and with it, excellent patient care. Teaching facilities typically have a much higher caliber of medical staff and are challenged to stay up-to-date in evidence-based practices.
