Why Sandhills Physicians is Important to You
Choosing a quality provider of care in Cumberland County and the surrounding area has never been easier. Have you ever thought “If a physician’s family member were sick, whom would they go to?” We have the answer to that question.
At Sandhills Physicians, IPA (Independent Physicians Association), we take great care in carefully screening and selecting providers to be in our network, just like we would for our own family members. We have doctors who determine who are the best in the area. Over 99% of our physicians are Board Certified in their respective specialties. All doctors in the network have passed a thorough review and must meet or exceed network participation requirements.
While the criteria to be a participating provider are rigorous, we feel local doctors have the best insight into who provides the best quality of care, not someone who does not live in the area. We choose only the best.
You can rest assured that the doctors in Sandhills Physicians IPA, are providing you with the highest quality of care and will work diligently to keep you healthy. Our physicians have spent countless hours crafting clinical pathways and protocols to standardize and ensure our patients get the care they need.
Using a method called peer review, our doctors regularly review the care that was provided by their colleagues and provide feedback about the care the treatment that was rendered. Should an issue or problem be identified, a corrective action plan is required for continued participation in Sandhills Physicians.

We are Committed to Serve You
At Sandhills Physician IPA, our commitment is to the health of our patients through the caring partnership of patients, physicians and medical professionals. Our doctors meet quarterly to review quality measures, ensure “best practices” and talk about how to improve the health of our community. Your community!
Physicians who are not members of Sandhills typically refer patients to other physicians, often with limited dialogue other than a piece of paper from a receptionist to a physician with a diagnosis. The difference is we talk to each other, physician to physician, because we work side-by-side with each other and share the same vision- a healthier you!
We believe that through advanced connectivity via the internet and inter-dependence among our physicians, we can achieve the highest quality of health care. We are dedicated to meeting your needs and promise to not only meet your expectations but set standards of care and provide convenience and accessibility. We hold ourselves accountable at every level of the organization: physician peer review, internal and external performance monitoring and quality improvement programs which are in place and reviewed regularly.
Besides colleague doctors reviewing care provided by our network physicians, we also monitor patient and employer satisfaction surveys as we want to do all we can to make your experience with us the best from a clinical, financial and personal point of view.
