Mills-Peninsula is fortunate to be associated with more than 500 of the region's finest doctors representing a broad range of expertise from internal medicine, family medicine and pediatrics to cancer, cardiovascular medicine, emergency medicine, neurology, orthopedics, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, radiology, surgery (including plastic surgery), pathology, physical and rehabilitative medicine, mental health and chemical dependency treatment.
Mills-Peninsula doctors were trained at leading academic medical centers. Medical staff regulations require that all our doctors go beyond the licensing required to practice medicine and achieve board certification in their specialty, as well. Board certification is a higher level of qualification requiring that doctors undergo post-graduate training in their field and pass rigorous certification examinations. This is a higher standard than most community hospitals. Today, 89 percent of Mills-Peninsula doctors are board certified, with the remainder working towards the distinction.
The Mills-Peninsula physician community offers consumers a choice of practice styles. We have the region's most successful independent practice association (IPA), the Mills-Peninsula Medical Group. Many physicians have chosen to work in single practices separate from the IPA. Today, a third doctor's practice model is available with the formation of a multispecialty group associated with the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF). The Mills-Peninsula Division of Palo Alto Medical Foundation works closely with physicians in all practice models.
