Verity Physician Network
Through the Verity Physician Network, Verity Health System teams up with physicians and their clinical groups to help them do what they do best: provide excellent primary and specialty health care to their patients. We’ve designed our health care network to embrace flexibility, creating partnerships that effectively adapt to the changing landscape of the health care industry. By providing business support and resources to our physician partners, we help them focus on practicing medicine the way they practice best. When our doctors and other partners win, everyone wins, especially the patients.
When a physician, group practice, or other entity becomes part of our network, they become part of our family. Our affiliated physicians extend the reach of Verity Health System and improve the success of the individual practices, ultimately improving the health of our communities. We are expanding our family of health care professionals daily. As our network grows, so does our reputation for excellence.
We invite you to explore the benefits of becoming part of our family at Verity. Contact us for more details. Our network offers a variety of creative partnership models, including those listed here.

Verity Medical Foundation is a full-service health care organization that aligns physicians with Verity’s six hospitals in Northern and Southern California. The foundation provides all business services, consolidates information technology, and negotiates contracts to streamline operations and reduce costs for patients served by our affiliated physicians and physician groups.
Among our affiliated groups are:
- Los Angeles Medical Group
- Santa Clara Medical Group
- San Mateo Medical Group

The Verity Physician Network welcomes partnerships with independent practice associations (IPAs).

As partners, Verity and its affiliated IPAs can offer coordinated, high quality care to more patients across broad geographic regions.

Currently, 2,000 private practice physicians call our Verity Health System hospitals home. These physicians have a deep commitment to their patients and to the communities they serve. Verity works to ensure that its hospitals provide a high quality, efficient, and welcoming environment for all physicians and the patients they entrust to our institutions. We actively seek out private physicians to work with us on quality initiatives, program development, and community outreach. Our physicians are the stewards of care for our health care system, and we welcome their partnership every step of the way.
Verity offers a full spectrum of medical services to its communities. The extended hours and immediate availability of care at Urgent Care centers provides convenience for patients. As the specialty of Urgent Care Medicine grows, the public is learning that Urgent Care is a better choice over the emergency room for their immediate, non-life-threatening healthcare needs. Verity physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners continue to elevate the quality and capability of the “walk-in clinic” to include treatment of a full range of non-emergency illnesses and injuries.
Verity hospitals often work with leading physician specialists to establish clinics on their campuses. These clinics provide integrated access to sophisticated outpatient services while being fully integrated with comprehensive “in hospital” programs. Examples include orthopedics, oncology, and gastroenterology among others.
