As a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH), Reliant Medical Group is committed to the integration of the entire care team in order to provide the best care possible for our patients. Clinically, Reliant performs above national standards on key quality measures. As a fully integrated healthcare delivery system, Reliant provides comprehensive radiology services, a range of same-day urgent care services, as well as endoscopy, physical therapy/rehabilitation, occupational health and eye surgery programs. Our robust Care Management department assists care providers in ensuring that our patients care is wellmanaged and coordinated. A leading employer in the region, Reliant has been recognized as a top workplace by Becker s Hospital Review, The Boston Globe and the Boston Business Journal. Many of our clinical quality scores exceed national standards.
