Our Advantages

The SMG advantage can be summed up in one word:  experience.  We didn’t learn how to provide the services we offer today in a seminar, or by watching other people do it.  We learned it by running hospitals and clinics, by managing revenue cycles, by adding service lines, by preparing cost reports, by learning firsthand what works well, and what works better.

We’ve also learned for ourselves what makes rural healthcare institutions unique, and the special financial, operational and regulatory challenges they face.  Low patient volumes, complex payer combinations, difficulties in recruiting and training business office staff – these are issues that SMG has faced before, and successfully managed.  That’s why we think we’re ready to be your strategic healthcare partner.
