Sound Physicians tackles the challenges of the fragmented U.S. healthcare system, focusing on making a measurable difference across the acute care episode. Our healers, leaders, and innovators are proving every day the difference we can make in patient and hospital outcomes.

In 2001, we realized things needed to be done differently in order to realize improved outcomes. We learned that, by having engaged providers and a high-performance model, it was possible to drive measurable and reproducible improvements that hospitals needed.

Today, hospitals partner with Sound Physicians because they are seeking an organization to help them drive change, overcome challenges and improve outcomes. With 3,000+ colleagues on our team, we are able to leverage our experience, strong clinical and business leaders, proven processes and innovative solutions to ensure patients get the care they deserve and hospitals get the improvements they need.

Our integrated approach to acute and post-acute care creates value by bringing together the interconnected disciplines of emergency medicine, critical care, hospital medicine, transitional care and physician advisory services. Together, we are on a mission to improve quality outcomes for patients and help improve the performance of healthcare systems. We invite you to join us on this journey.
